The Beanster, last seen battling demons and such in “Silent Hill: Revelation 3D” and will soon reprise Zeus in “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”, will be playing a character named Stinger in the Wachowskis’ upcoming sci-fi movie. Bean’s character is described as “a Han Solo-type”, though the description doesn’t include how grisly his death will be in the film. I’m guessing getting shot into space is a very real possibility. Then exploding and possibly burning up while in tiny pieces in Jupiter’s atmosphere.
He will join Eddie Redmayne, Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis in the film, a futuristic actioner where humans are near the bottom of the evolutionary ladder. The film chronicles a young destitute human woman who becomes targeted for assassination by the Queen of the Universe because her very existence threatens to end the Queen’s reign.
The Wachowskis are coming off the critically acclaimed “Cloud Atlas”, which is still trying to scrape the bottom of $100 million in worldwide box office, with much of that coming from foreign moviegoers.
“Jupiter Ascending” is set for 2014, with the siblings writing and directing.
