To whoever is repping Eddie Redmayne as he makes his way into Hollywood: nice work. The actor has been taking a variety of roles, from the gritty indie "Hick," to the biopic "My Week With Marilyn" to this month's Oscar contending "Les Miserables," all allowing him to flex a few different muscles. And now that he's paid his dues and proved himself, he's getting into the tentpole game.

Eddie Remayne, Jupiter Ascending

To whoever is repping Eddie Redmayne as he makes his way into Hollywood: nice work. The actor has been taking a variety of roles, from the gritty indie "Hick," to the biopic "My Week With Marilyn" to this month's Oscar contending "Les Miserables," all allowing him to flex a few different muscles. And now that he's paid his dues and proved himself, he's getting into the tentpole game.

After being in contention for roles in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" and "Guardians Of The Galaxy," Redmayne will now team with The Wachowskis for their sci-fi flick "Jupiter Ascending." Co-starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, the film, which could kickstart a franchise, will center on a toilet-scrubbing Russian immigrant (Kunis) who actually has the same genetic makeup as the immortal Queen Of The Universe, and thus threatens her rule. A bounty hunter is then dispatched to take her down (Tatum), but they fall in love and go on the run. No word yet on Redmayne's role.

As always, this one is ambitious, with The Wachowskis teasing they have an idea that will top the bullet time effect they introduced in "The Matrix," and the movie is already planned for an IMAX release. Production on the film will get underway in early 2013. [Variety]
