Douglas Booth Boards the Wachowskis' 'Jupiter Ascending'

Douglas Booth

British actor Douglas Booth is joining the cast of Lana and Andy Wachowskis' sci-fi flick Jupiter Ascending, Variety reports. What character he'll be playing is unknown, however.

Booth will join a cast that already include Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Eddie Redmayne and Sean Bean.

The story for Jupiter Ascending, said to be the first movie in a trilogy, is kind of like Snow White in space. Kunis will play a woman who has the same genetic makeup as the queen of the universe. This queen sends out Channing to take her out, but instead of doing what he's told, he ends up siding with Kunis instead.

Sean Bean is playing a Han Solo-type character. Redmayne's character, like Booth's, is unknown at this time.

While a release date has not been announced, Jupiter Ascending is expected to go before the camera sometimes this month.
