Mila Kunis is a wanted woman — first as the rebound girlfriend for that guy who used to date Sarah Marshall, then as a gun-packing sidekick to ex-cop Max Payne, and now as a femme fatale turned partner of some guy name Eli in the upcoming post-apocalyptic movie “Book of Eli”. The movie will star Denzel Washington as a sword-carrying warrior in charge of a book that can save humanity, and that everyone seems to want. Gary Oldman has already signed on to play Eli’s nemesis, and now Kunis has joined the cast as Solara, a woman who is sent (by Oldman’s warlord character, one presumes) to worm her way into Eli’s confidence in order to betray him, but the plan backfires when Solara decides to join Eli’s quest to save mankind with the titular book. Chicks, you can’t trust them, even in a post-apocalyptic world.
THR has more on the movie:
The script, by Gary Whitta and a rewrite by Anthony Peckham, centers on a lone hero named Eli (Washington) who must fight his way across the wasteland of a near-future America to protect a sacred book that might hold the key to saving the future of humanity.
Brothas Albert and Allen Hughes are directing for Warner Bros and Alcon Entertainment. A rather badass (if just a tad “Blade”-ish) looking teaser poster for the movie recently surfaced, that you can take a gander at here.
Below: The book on Mla Kunis? Smoking, if a tad inappropriate for movies Hollywood keeps casting her in. Seriously, it’s Jackie from That ’70s Show, guys, not Milla Friggin Jovovich. Stop putting her in action movies!
