Mila Kunis (Max Payne, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) has joined the cast of The Book of Eli, the Denzel Washington action thriller from Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment. Albert and Allen Hughes are directing. Gary Oldman co-stars.
The script, by Gary Whitta and a rewrite by Anthony Peckham, centers on a lone hero named Eli (Washington) who must fight his way across the wasteland of a near-future America to protect a sacred book that might hold the key to saving the future of humanity.
Kunis plays a woman named Solara, at first enlisted to betray Eli, she ultimately joins him in his quest.
Principal photography begins in February in New Mexico.
