Jupiter Ascending is one of the films I’ve been tracking for a long time. I love Lana and Andy Wachowski and I’m excited for them to create something original again. They’ve been doing the adaptation game for near on a decade now and it will be nice to see them bringing their own ideas back to the big screen.
Jupiter Ascending has been kept secret for some time now. First we found out that Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis were going to star, and then we found out that Kunis’ character was going to be a woman with the exact same genetic make-up as the queen of the universe.
Well, now we’re hearing even more interesting things. Straight from the mouth of Channing Tatum:
“We are breaking ground on—I mean it’s a tough shoot. We’re doing stuff that’s never been done, inside the camera, in the CG world, and the physical stuff. There’s very little, if not no, digital stuntmen in the movie. All the stuff is really real and it’s been hard figuring it out because they don’t like doing anything that’s been done before. So we’re definitely doing some new stuff, so hopefully everybody likes it. And it’s fun, it’s got some cheek to it. It’s a cheeky movie a little bit.”
When pushed for details he had this to say:
“I’m a splice. Splices are essentially built in a test tube. I’m a hybrid wolf and human. And half albino, so I’m a little defective.”
I’m very, very excited for this film. I can’t wait to see what the Wachowski’s bring to the table.
