Written and directed by the famed filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowski (The Matrix” Trilogy), Channing Tatum‘s new sci-fi epic ‘Jupiter Ascending‘ began filming at Warner Bros.’ Leavesden studio in London on April 2nd.
The science fiction adventure will showcase the kind of cutting-edge visual effects that have become the benchmarks of the Wachowskis’ films, and Chan and Mila Kunis lead an international cast that also includes Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, James D’Arcy and Tim Pigott-Smith.
Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along—her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
The movie will film in the UK through June and then moves to Chicago to finish the production. Mark your calendars, because Entertainment Weekly reports that ‘Jupiter Ascending‘ is currently scheduled to hit theaters on July 25, 2014, so stay tuned to CTU for the latest updates!
