James Franco's latest project - of many - just landed a badass leading lady. Milla Jovovich has joined the cast of the new indie film "Future World," Deadline confirms.

The actress will play a drug lord in a post-apocalyptic world that is plagued with heat, ravaged by disease and crippled by chronic war. Franco will star in the film and as well as co-direct with Bruce Thierry Cheung.

Written by Cheung, Jay Davis and Jeremy Cheung, the sci-fi movie will follow a young boy of noble birth who embarks on a journey through the wasteland of this future world in order to find medicine for his dying mother. Not knowing if the medicine will actually cure his mother, the boy and his loyal bodyguard forge on and confront the Warlord who has malicious plans on his own, with the help of a beautiful, life-like robot assassin.
