She was a mainstay of the cast of Fox’s That ’70s Show for eight seasons, but unlike many TV vets, Mila Kunis seems to be sticking the landing in her jump to the big screen.
Variety reports that Kunis will follow up her role in next month’s Forgetting Sarah Marshall with a star turn opposite Mark Wahlberg in the long-discussed adaptation of Rockstar’s popular Max Payne videogame. From the article:
Kunis, best known for a long run on “That ’70s Show” and voicing the androgynous teen Meg Griffin in “Family Guy,” will play an assassin who teams up with the title character to avenge her sister’s death. Wahlberg plays Payne, a cop haunted by the tragic loss of his family who finds himself in the thick of a conspiracy when he investigates a series of murders.
John Moore is set to direct Payne, from a script by Beau Thorne. Whether Moore, Wahlberg, or anyone else involved can make a believable assassin out of adorable little Mila Kunis will obviously be determined at a later date.
