Sean Bean Joins The Wachowskis' JUPITER ASCENDING

Sean Bean Joins The Wachowskis' JUPITER ASCENDING

Deadline report that the LOTR/Game Of Thrones actor will join the already impressive cast of the Wachowskis' upcoming sci-fi flick as a "Han Solo type" character. Shall we take bets on whether he'll survive till the end of the movie?

According to Deadline, walking movie massacre Sean Bean has signed on to play a character called "Stinger" in the movie that marks Matrix duo Andy and Lana Wachowski's return to sci-fi, Jupiter Rising. The character is described as a Han Solo type so we'll assume he'll be a roguish good-guy. He will join Channing Tatum, Eddie Redmayne and Mila Kunis in the movie which is set in a time where humans are at the bottom of the evolutionary ladder, and follows a woman who has been targeted for assassination by the queen of the universe.

Save Sean Bean, save the world? No?

I think the bigger issue here is that the Wachowskis are making another movie. For the love of all humanity, please someone take the cameras away from them STAT. NO MORE WACHOWSKI MOVIES.....PLEASE!

Sean Bean casting news should be labeled as spoilers. He's gonna die another time, it's like...the 20-25th time, not kidding, look on youtube.

Maybe the Wachowski siblings can actually make a good movie again. It's been 14 years.

*Haven't seen Cloud Atlas yet so can't judge that one.
superpooper - 2/5/2013, 7:26 PM
I got 20 that says he lives. He can't die every time.
superpooper - 2/5/2013, 7:27 PM
He survived Silent Hill 1. I don't know if he's technically alive or not at the end of Silent Hill: Revelation. I'm sure he wanted to be dead.

@fennecpilot your joking right....these guys directed the best sci-fi trilogy in a long time could teach whedon and the like a few things.
Canon108 - 2/5/2013, 9:53 PM
He didn't die in Ronin either...Leonardo DiCaprio is the learner, Sean Bean is the master, lol

Seriously, this project just gets more and more interesting, to me.

Would be a surprise if he actually lives to the end.
NiklanderReborn - 2/6/2013, 1:06 AM

Sean is the Kenny of the silverscreen. He should change career.. Perhaps become the new drummer in Spinal Tap.. oh wait..
