Actress Mila Kunis recently opened up about her role in the upcoming sci-fi western The Book of Eli, which is directed by The Hughes Brothers, and co-stars Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman. She also discussed the recent buzz surrounding the leaked script of Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming feature, Black Swan. Find out more on these two high profile films below.
In Eli, Kunis plays a young woman named Solara. The actress has already played a hard as nails assassin in the big screen adaptation of Max Payne, so we wanted to know if this character is cut from the same cloth.
In Book of Eli, it’s a very real character that has to fight to survive in a specific type of world. [She] learns how to survive versuses being placed in front of you just as this one person. You can get to see her grow. It’s a great, great, great part!
She also told us about some of the cool action oriented scenes she got to shoot while working on the film.
I get to flip a car. I get to throw a grenade into a convoy of cars, and I get to do other fun things that I can’t talk about. The trailers are so small in comparison to how cool the movie is. I gotta tell you, the movie is really, really cool.
This past week the internet has been filled with rumors about script details from Darren Aronofsky’s, Black Swan. The film’s a supernatural thriller that takes place in the world of ballet. It places Kunis opposite Natalie Portman and rumors are suggesting that the story will call for an aggressive love scene between their characters.
I will not be adding anymore fuel to this fire. The script is so under lock and key. Completely under lock and key. I have no idea how anybody could have read it at all, it’s not possible. There’s maybe about four copies. I’m not going to say it’s not true, I’m not going to say it is true, because I just can’t talk about it. It’s very bizarre how anything would even get out, because it’s such a private script.
There you have it. No confirmation or denial on her part. In the film both actresses will star as ballerinas, and Kunis is currently training four hours a day, seven days as week to develop the skills needed to realistically portray a dancer.
