Milla Jovovich is set to star alongside James Franco in his forthcoming indie film 'Future World'
Milla Jovovich is to star in James Franco's 'Future World'.
The 40-year-old actress has reportedly landed the role of a drug lord alongside the hunky actor, who is also directing from the story he created, in the dystopian indie drama.
The forthcoming blockbuster, which is set in a post-apocalyptic world that is plagued with heat, ravaged by disease and crippled by chronic war, will follow the story of a young man of noble birth trying to survive in a ruined world.
The lad - expected to be portrayed by Franco himself - will have to make a risky journey through the wasteland with his trusty bodyguard in order to find medicine for his mother but along the way will be faced with extreme danger.
George Lewis Jr. has also joined the line-up, playing someone called Ratcatcher, but most details on the casting and characters have been kept tightly under wraps.
The project, which has been written by Bruce Thierry Cheung, Jay Davis and Jeremy Cheung, will be produced by Dark Rabbit Productions, according to Deadline.
It's not yet known when the movie will go into production and no release date has been determined at time of publish.
Meanwhile, Jovovich's diary seems to be stacking up this year as she's just finished shooting 'Resident Evil: The Final Chapter', which will hit cinemas screens next February.
