The Wachowskis made the most under appreciated film (at least by audiences) of the year in “Cloud Atlas”. So it’s relieving for me to know that “Jupiter Ascending” is still on track. Eddie Redmayne is in talks to join Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis in the sci-fi flick which centers around higher forms of life who are watching us from other worlds. Kunis will play a Russian immigrant who is busily scrubbing toilets for a living. Unbeknownst to her, she actually possesses the same perfect genes as the Queen of the Universe and is therefore a threat to her otherwise immortal rule.
