EXCLUSIVE: Mila Kunis has been set to star in Hell & Back alongside Nick Swardson, TJ Miller, Rob Riggle, Brian Posehn and Kumail Najiani. The R-rated stop-motion animated comedy follows two best friends (Swardson and Miller) as they rescue a buddy who’s been dragged to hell by accident. ShadowMachine’s Corey Campodonico, Eric Blyler and Alex Bulkley are producing and Tommy Gianas is directing with Ross Shuman. Script revisions are being made by Hugh Sterbakov.
Kunis is a female demon whose ability to navigate the underworld makes her the toughest rogue demon in Hell. Her independent streak comes from the fact she’s half human. She was sired by the Orpheus of myth when he traveled down the River Styx, nailing everything in sight. Kunis wrapped Oz: The Great and Powerful for Disney and the Seth MacFarlane-directed TED for Universal. She’s repped by CAA and Curtis Talent Management.
