Channing Tatum to Star in the Wachowskis’ Jupiter Ascending


Channing Tatum confirmed to MTV that he will star in the Wachowskis’ next film after Cloud Atlas, titled Jupiter Ascending.

“Yes, absolutely,” he said when asked if he’d be involved in the movie. “It’s going to be a crazy action movie from the [directors] of ‘The Matrix.’ They’re going to reinvent the wheel as far as action goes, all over again.”

This comes a day after Vulture‘s report on the possible plot. The site said that Jupiter Ascending is about “higher forms of life [who] are watching us from other, albeit this time non-meta worlds, but actual, other worlds, as in planets and moons.”

Mila Kunis will play a Russian immigrant “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.”
