It's long been a marketing tactic for an actor's agent to time the announcement of their next job with the impending release of the actor's next movie. Such is the case with the news that Eddie Redmayne (who's about to be seen in the big budget, big screen version of Les Miserables) has won a part in the Wachowskis' next, Jupiter Rising. The British-born actor is the third to be named in the sci-fi movie (after Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis.)- Variety. Comment on this Scoop (0)

Both Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis have been offered the top male and female roles in Jupiter Ascending, reports online trade outlet Deadline. Tatum has had back-to-back big screen hits with 21 Jump Street and The Vow, while Kunis is coming off a good turn opposite Natalie Portman in last year's Black Swan. She's also playing the female villain in Oz the Great and Powerful under director Sam Raimi's supervision.

It's a science fiction movie and it's called Jupiter Ascending and it will be the next movie that Matrix creators Andy and Lana Wachowski make for Warner Bros. next. Aside from that, no one knows anything else about it.
The Wachowskis are co-directing Cloud Atlas right now with director Tom Twyker, so they won't get around to doing this project until sometime next year. The studio wants someone on the A-list to star in it, which gets away from the Wachowskis' last big genre effort, Speed Racer, which relied on trippy visuals over star leading hype. That didn't work and Speed Racer was a bomb.
So what can we speculate about Jupiter Ascending? Well, if the title is to be taken literally, it could be set around the solar system's largest planet. Is it set in the future? Does it take place on Earth and we're dealing with something that's gone wrong around Jupiter? [Full story]Comment on this Scoop (1)
