JUPITER ASCENDING is an upcoming science fiction film written, produced and directed by The Wachowskis (Bound, The Matrix trilogy, Speed Racer, Cloud Atlas), starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, with Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Doona Bae (裴斗娜), Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, James D'Arcy, and Tim Pigott-Smith. Set in the distant future, the film centers on a lowly janitor who learns that she has a great genetic destiny.
Jupiter Jones (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 other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (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.
