JUPITER ASCENDING 2 ‘WILL HAVE SMALLER BUDGET’

JUPITER ASCENDING 2 ‘WILL HAVE SMALLER BUDGET’

HOLLYWOOD – Following the high profile flop of Jupiter Ascending, few thought that a sequel was likely or desirable but a scaled down Jupiter Ascending sequel is now on the cards.

The Wachowski Sisters are to direct a sequel to last year’s Jupiter Ascending, it has been revealed, but with a much reduced budget. Mila Kunis will not return as Jupiter Jones, the Earth woman who takes on the villains, nor will Channing Tatum as the hybrid man-dog Caine Wise. They have been replaced by Lindsay Lohan and Hayden Christensen.

The Wachowskis slipped into the Studio Exec bungalow to talk EXCLUSIVELY about the new pic.

Lana said:

We really roasted the studio on the last one and there was no way in this solar system that they would put up the money to take a bath on the sequel as well. And yet we still felt that we had a story to tell. A truly compelling story.

Lilly: Yeah, there was no way they were going to help us out unless we cut the money right back. Mila and Channing were really cool about it. We showed them what we intended to do about the story and how we couldn’t afford them anymore and they seemed really happy.

Lana: True professionals.

LIlly: So then we got Lindsay Lohan and Hayden Christensen.

So they were cheaper?

Lana: $5000 each.

That’s amazingly cheap!

Lilly: We felt bad asking them for more.

Oh, they’re paying?

Lana: Er, yeah.

And the story?

Lilly: What story?

Lana: The story is a continuation, but instead of having lots of expensive effects it’s going to take place in a garage that needs tidying up.

Lilly: We do have some exteriors of lawns being mown and basic landscape gardening being done. And the style is going to be a lot more handheld.

Lana: As if filmed on a phone.

Lilly: And we’re changing the title.

Jupiter Descending will be released in 2017.

          I totally agree with you. I loved the movie, and there are a lot of movies that I think are great but are said to be “flops”. Obviously a lot has to do with the timing of their release and how they were marketed. I had never heard of this movie until I saw it on the “new release” section at Walmart. I’m a Sci-Fi buff so I bought it not even thinking it would be great. I’m glad they’re making a sequel, but I feel it’s a shame that the Producers are going to make what sounds like a half hearted effort.

    Loved Jupiter Ascending and would like to see a sequel but without Mila or Channing I doubt it will work.

    That’s very disappointing. Wanting a sequel is to see more of their story, not some random new characters pretending to be them. I just watched Jupiter Ascending again, but will definitely not watch the new one.

    I dont understand whythe movie flopped i thought it was great and the special effects were awesome. I wanted there to be a sequel but without the same lead characters i will not go see it. Mila and Channing looked great together. I understand there has to be budget cuts but if you cant keep the original characters then why waste the money to even make a sequel at all. Cant there be some kind of compromise where you keep Mila and Channing but they take a small pay cut and get some other kind of perks in place of the cut?

    The next Jupiter Ascending should have all cast back, even those who died. They are smart and can regenerate an original bad character or good character. It was not a flop. Blame the marketing crew. The next movie should have all the great cg and more.

    I would like to see a sequel, I won’t watch it without the main characters coming back. Not surprising it was a flop probably in the advertising like John Carter of Mars which was a fantastic movie and I’ve been waiting for them to make a sequel

    I love this movie and everything about it, I think the studio is making a very big mistake not paying for mila and channing to be in it.

    They made 18 million in box office and how many more in DVD and VOD rentals? That’s a flop? I wish I could make a flop that profits million lol.

    New movie will be a handheld camera like a cell phone? Garage? If they are calling the first one a flop wait till they release this one.

    Are u people for real?? How can u not realize wtf u are reading? Do u not understand the meaning of the words that were used in the article??

    This is comedy. Sarcasm at its finest.

    How could u think that a couple of actors (even washed up ones like Lindsay Lohan) would pay the directors $5000 for the privilege to “star” in this movie that is being filmed on a cellphone. In a garage?

    Sweet Jesus.

    I’m not even into sci-fi and I really liked this movie. Really was looking forward to a sequel, but it’s just not the same without the original cast.

    Dear everyone commenting. We were going to make this movie but after reading your comments have decided against it, this world is obviously too fucking stupid for this movie. Sincerely Milla Kunis and Channing Tatum.

        Ok, if you insist we’ve talked tbover and are going to do this film for you Angie ….. I Mila have decided to take a break from “Family Guy” and I’ve talked it over with Ashton Kutcher (my husband) and will have him and my son on set so I don’t have to be away from them. He is currently taking a break from filming his own Netflix show “The Ranch” anyway. Channing has also decided to sign on and film alongside me in between shooting the “Kingsman” sequel.
        We should start filming in the following months just for the fans in this comment thread. Good job guys, thanks to the obvious lack of ability for American citizens to understand satire were extactic, nee-jubilant to announce this.
