Jupiter Ascending Exclusive: Sean Bean on Wachowskis “Two Minds Working As One”

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Jupiter Ascending star Sean Bean exclusively visits with Movie Fanatic to talk about his space epic from the pair who brought us The Matrix, the Wachowskis.

Bean is joined by Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis as part of a trio of characters who will hold the key to a universe-wide battle for who controls Earth and all of its priceless resources. Jupiter Ascending is a sci-fi adventure that finds Tatum's alien warrior coming to our planet to rescue Kunis -- who doesn't know it, but she's an intergalactic princess!

As you can tell when you watch The Matrix online, the Wachowskis are visual artists of the highest order who match that note for beautiful note with stories that compel, challenge and thrill. 

Bean tells us that they are also the rarest breeds who are also what is called, “actor’s directors.”

“They’ve got a solid vision of what they want to get across,” Bean told Movie Fanatic.

We as an audience marvel at their stunning films. You can imagine how the actor who stood in front of a green screen while the Wachowskis described what they saw felt when seeing the finished product of Jupiter Ascending, which lands in theaters February 6.

“It’s mind-blowing. I don’t think I’ve seen anything like this before.”

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and Game of Thrones star had never worked with two directors at once and found it refreshing. “It’s like two minds working as one,” he said of the Wachowskis. “There’s this gift they got.”
