More details revealed for The Wachowski's upcoming sci-fi romp Jupiter Ascending

Are you guys excited for The Wachowski's upcoming sci-fi romp JUPITER ASCENDING? What am I talking about?! Of course you are!

The film already has Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis (below) tapped to star... but what is this thing about? So far we've been in the dark regarding any plot details for JUPITER ASCENDING but that changes today thanks to the guys over at NY Mag's Vulture. A trusted source just dropped some plot details on them for JUPITER ASCENDING... Now this rundown is pretty detailed so I'm not sure if it is touching any spoiler territory. So proceed with caution.

Imagine a universe in which “human beings are just the Cro-Magnons, or even the Australopithecines, of what beings can ultimately go on to become in the galaxy. It’s a return to form for [the Wachowskis], because these higher forms of life are watching us from other, albeit this time non-meta worlds, but actual, other worlds, as in planets and moons.”

The film centers on an unlikely (and ultimately reluctant) heroine: A recent Russian immigrant — played by actual Ukrainian immigrant Mila Kunis — who is busily scrubbing toilets for a living. Unbeknownst to her, she actually possesses the same perfect genetic makeup as the Queen of the Universe and is therefore a threat to her otherwise immortal rule.

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 Cleaning Lady with the Great Pair of Nucloetides, but, as you’d expect with a Matrix re-dux, 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.

So there you have it folks! Sounds like something pretty twisted and out of this world, right? Right down The Wachowski's alley! Unfortunately this little diddy, which is said to be the start of a trilogy, hasn't even started filming yet but word has it an offer will be going out to Joseph Gordon-Levitt soon so more news on JUPITER ASCENDING should be dropping our way soon.

Extra Tidbit: The Wachowskis' next film is the highly anticipated CLOUD ATLAS.
