Awesome details emerge on the plot of The Wachowski's Jupiter Ascending

05.31.2012

We reported back in March that Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis were attached to star in the next Wachowski film, JUPITER ASCENDING. Not much was known about the movie's plot other than it was going to be science fiction. Now, it looks like Vulture has gotten the inside scoop on the storyline and it sounds quite awesome.

The film will center on a Russian immigrant (Mila Kunis) who works as a maid and does not realize that she is an exact genetic match as the Queen of the Universe. The Queen takes offense to this new threat and a battle ensues. Immediately, this sounds like SNOW WHITE meets JOHN CARTER.

Not impressed yet? Check out the rest of the details.

These evolved beings fall into various different groups, all of which share some human DNA but who have become evolved after being bred with animal DNA to heighten their best characteristics — e.g., soldiers getting their fearlessness, strength, and a pack mentality from wolves; workers getting their industriousness and reputation for diligence from bees.

Pretty soon, a bounty hunter of the evolved-being type is dispatched to dispose of the girl, they fall in love. And for having fallen for his target, the bounty hunter — who we hear will be played by Channing Tatum — well, let’s just say that things get messy after that, because his employers take a-less-than-enlightened-being reaction to his decision to protect rather than kill her.

JUPITER ASCENDING appears to be the first in a trilogy and rumor has it that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is being offerred a role as well.

With SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN opening tomorrow and the huge failure of JOHN CARTER, this sounds like it may be a big gamble due to it's similarities to both in tone and concept. As a fan of the Wachowskis, I hope this comes together. Plus, you can't go wrong with Mila Kunis as your star. I just hope they don't decide to kill of Channing Tatum and then hold the movie back for re-shoots and 3D conversion.

Extra Tidbit: If a blind man suddenly regained sight and the first thing he saw was Mila Kunis, would his crotch just instantly explode?

seems to me if these other worldy beings wanted to make sure no person with the same genetic make-up as theirs found out about them, then all they would have to do is not come to Earth! I mean it's not like we would ever find out about (or be able to do anything about them) them otherwise. I mean it would be like me knowing there was a ruler being on another planet that shared the same genetic traits as me. Even if I knew, what would (or could) I do about it? It does sound interesting though. I

This actually sounds pretty interesting, but not sold yet. The entire mixing DNA thing sounds kinda weird, but I'm keeping my eyes open for more info.

Wow this sounds so incredibly... stupid.

Sounds exactly like the plot for Snow White & The Huntsman.

At least Cloud Atlas looks interesting.

So, did their futuristic gay soldier Iraqi-war set conspiracy movie even make it out of the planning stages? I kept hearing about that for a while. I thought they even shot footage for it.

Anyway, on topic: this sounds pretty neato.

Nevermind, googled it. Apparently, no one wanted to fund it.

Wachowskis = Win

can't wait for this. Not a big Kunis fan, find she can be a bit annoying at times but hopefully they change my opinion of her. Fingers crossed!
