First Image From Set Of Wachowski's Jupiter Ascending, Courtesy Of... Terry Gilliam?

This is interesting. Terry Gilliam has been cast in a small role in Jupiter Ascending, the new Snow White-inspired sci-fi fable from The Wachowskis, and as well as commenting on his casting via Facebook, he shared this image.

Gilliam said:

Off at dawn tomorrow to pretend to be an actor in the new Wachowski’s film, Jupiter Ascending. It’s a small but vital part (or so I’m told). Apparently, these guys are in the film as well. I can’t wait to meet my hairdresser.

This solves a little mystery I’d been puzzling over lately. As I wrote, a couple of weeks back:

Gilliam also [spoke] about another film he’ll “be involved in this year,” though they’ve agreed to keep any further details secret for now.

Next question: what’s his secret Neil Gaiman project?

 Jupiter Ascending will star Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis. Here’s he official plot blurb:

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 toilets 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.

The film is planned as the start of a series. As ever, we’ll have to see about that. I’m in though – at the very least to see what they do put on Gilliam’s head. Meanwhile, Gilliam’s own next film, The Zero Theorem, is just wrapping up post production and should – hopefully – be with us later this year.
