Terry Gilliam Will Be In Jupiter Ascending
In a 'small but vital part'...

Terry Gilliam

He may be best known as the anarchic animator, writer and director responsible for such movies as Monty Python And The Holy Grail, The Fisher King, Brazil and Twelve Monkeys, but Terry Gilliam is not above gracing the screen with his acting presence when the moment (and, more usually, friends) call for it. He’s hit Facebook to announce that he’ll be part of the Wachowskis’ Jupiter Ascending.

Gilliam offered no details on what he might be doing in the film, beyond remarking that he’ll be in a “small but vital part”.

Jupiter Ascending finds the Wachowskis back in big-scale sci-fi territory, set in a universe where humans are near the bottom of the evolutionary ladder. But destitute young woman Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) is destined for something greater – and that brings an assassin hired by the Queen of the Universe, none too happy that her reign is under threat.

The film also features Channing Tatum, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, James D’Arcy and Doona Bae. It’ll arrive here on July 25, 2014.

As for Gilliam’s own directing career, he’s busy editing his next movie, The Zero Theorem, which will hopefully hit screens early next year.
