This is exciting! Recently it was announced that Sean has signed on for Jupiter Ascending, the new major film project from The Wachowski's (Matrix films, V For Vendetta, Speed Racer, Cloud Atlas). I have to admit I was quite surprised! I've seen most of their films, really liked The Matrix, but their style of writing & filming isn't something that I thought would fit Sean, so I applaud both him & them for expanding their universes!
|Sean Bean in Cleanskin|
|Tuppence Middleton in Cleanskin|
Here's the current working description of the film:
In a universe where humans are near the bottom of the evolutionary ladder, a young destitute human woman is targeted for assassination by the Queen of the Universe because her very existence threatens to end the Queen's reign.
Sean's character in Jupiter Ascending is a man named Stinger, and he is described as being a Stars Wars-esque "Han Solo" type, which I presume means something like a smartass, charming, big hearted rouge who fights for right & protects the ones he loves. Unfortunately, he is not the leading man.
I will definitely be keeping an eye on this film's progression, stay tuned!
