The producer of Jupiter Ascending – Grant Hill - spoke to ScifiNow. In the newest issue he talks a little bit about the movie story and explains the unfamous delay.
On the story
“It’s a very grand world – or series of worlds – that have been created. They’re very vivid and very different, and the look and the workings of these worlds is just something that I think, on a scale, hasn’t really been seen before.”
“There’s a freshness, certainly, from the smallest thing to the broad vision of the world. It’s just so re-envisaged that it does take your breath away a little bit. But I guess that at centre of it, it is also a sort of sibling rivalry story, which is a story that people know, people have seen it in their own families, and they’ve seen it in large more prominent families. It’s about rivalry, it’s about the relationship of a family, and at its heart it’s a love story.
On the unfamous delay
“We didn’t want to rush it in a way that didn’t allow time for Warner Bros to properly market the movie. Those things are always competing a little bit in visual effects movies, because until you get right to the very end of it you don’t have the full movie in the sense that you would a drama or a comedy or whatever. ”
“There are different sorts of risks. I mean, there are financial risks, creative risks, ‘can you do it in time’ risks… In this case, I think that the risks are not of a commercial nature. I think the risks going into it were more that Lana and Andy had a vision that was so detailed and so fantastical.”
“We needed to design so much stuff. We had a little more time on so it allowed us to work that out a lot. But I think by the time we got to filming we had pretty much exactly what we hoped we would get to, but it took a lot to get there.”
Multiple Academy Awards nominee – producer Grant Hill – talks making of Jupiter Ascending in Total Film magazine.
Outside the box
“Lana, Andy and I were approached by Warner Brothers about four or five years ago,” says Hill of Jupiter’s inception. “They wanted a big Wachowski movie: the whole design element and the grand story. It percolated. The first real sense of what Lana and Andy had was when they delivered the first script. It was astounding; a totally new take on the design of multiple enviroments within space, with large characters, a great love story, and a family battling over an inheritance – which is Earth. It was so huge in scope, so much fun to read. The Wachowskis are supremely creative, and for me it was about letting them fulfil their vision.”
“This deserted farmhouse is where Stinger has been stripped of his position,” Hill explains of Sean Bean’s character, a man genetically enhanced with bee DNA who’s an ostracised ex-member of the intergalactic police force. “Something went wrong; he took the bullet while Channing was able to remain on. Sean’s is a very pivotal character – a sort of father figure to Channing. The farmhouse is a place inhabited by these bees, which are programmed in their own society to react to the queen. And they react to Mila – it’s a final signal that she’s the real deal. This is a really lovely, lyrical sequence.”
