The 'Friends with Benefits' actress is locked to voice a demon named Deema in the stop-motion comedy movie that follows two best friends as they try to save their buddy who is dragged to Hell.
Mila Kunis has been added to the voice cast of a one-stop movie called "Hell & Back". The "Black Swan" actress is tapped to voice a demon named Deema in the adult animated film, which has been granted an R rating.
ShadowMachine announced Kunis' casting for the film, which marks the studio's first R-rated animated feature, on Thursday, March 1. "We're thrilled to have Mila involved. Her unique blend of comedy and charm fits perfectly with what is sure to be one of the most memorable animated female characters in a long time," said ShadowMachine's Corey Campodonico.
Kunis joins a set of actors who have previously been added to the voice cast. They include Nick Swardson, TJ Miller, Rob Riggle, Brian Posehn and Kumail Najiani.
"Hell & Back" follows two best friends (Swardson and Miller) as they rescue their buddy who has been accidentally dragged to Hell. Serving as the directors are Tommy Gianas and Ross Shuman with Hugh Sterbakov providing the screenplay.
In the press release, Kunis' character, Deema, is described as "a female demon whose ability to navigate the underworld makes her the toughest rogue demon in Hell. Her independent streak may come from her greatest secret: She's half-human."
It is further explained Deema "was sired by the Orpheus of myth when he traveled down the River Styx years ago. What the myths don't say is that he was nailing everything that moved. When Orpheus is revealed to be a bit of a tool, Deema has to look inside to figure out what it means to be human."
Kunis most recently starred opposite Justin Timberlake in adult comedy "Friends with Benefits". She will next be seen starring in Walt Disney Pictures' "Oz: The Great and Powerful" and Universal Pictures' "Ted".
