Mila Kunis Headed To Hell...

Did you take a look at the Frankenweenie trailer? Did you watch it wishing there were more filmmakers who would take a leaf out, of, say, Aardman or Laika’s book and do more with stop-motion? Are you craving something with a little extra edge? Then you might be intrigued by the notion of Hell & Back, which will use the format for a sweary, sexy, OTT visit to Hades. Now Mila Kunis is aboard to voice a female rogue demon.

The decidedly R-rated** Hell & Back **will see two best friends (voiced by Nick Swardson and TJ Miller) heading down to the fires of hell to rescue their mate, who has been accidentally dragged there. Along the way, they’ll bump into Kunis’ character, a creature unlike most of her fellow hell-spawn since she’s also half-human. Her dad was Orpheus, who in this version of the underworld, basically slept with every female demon he met.

Kunis’ participation is not a shock, since the film is being produced by ShadowMachine, who produce Robot Chicken where she’s a regular voice. She’s joining a cast that also already includes Rob Riggle, Brian Posehn and Kumail Nanjiani.

Drunk History writer Tommy Gianas is co-directing with Ross Shulman and Hugh Sterbakov has been giving the script a polish. There’s no word on a release date yet.

Mila Kunis will next be seen in Seth McFarlane’s Ted (out August 30) and next year in Sam Raimi’s Oz: The Great And Powerful.
