Photos: The Wachowskis Film Jupiter Ascending In Chicago

The Wachowskis are currently in Chicago filming scenes for their upcoming movie Jupiter Ascending and Chicagoist Photos Flickr pool contributor Chris Wilson shared some shots of showing who he believes is a stunt double for star Channing Tatum working on Michigan Avenue between Wacker Drive and South Water Street.

Jupiter Ascending is being billed as a cross between Star Wars and Snow White starring Mila Kunis as Jupiter Jones, a janitor who just happens to have the exact genetic makeup as the Queen of the Universe. The ruling Queen isn't happy with that nugget of information, so she sends Caine (Tatum), an ex-military defective genetically modified human-wolf hybrid (A cross between grumpy and Dopey, perhaps?), to kill her. Caine informs Jupiter of her possible destiny, setting the stage for some Wachowski-fied special effects and action sequences.

Jupiter Ascending recently wrapped up filming in London. It's due in theaters next year.
