so let's just hope that this film is let go of, god forbid this Joseph Kadaronzski makes another BLUE film... it would be terribling travesty of nayest high standard, standard set due well au centra pompidoo, main laxo circumflex, et l'eguu, marhapto kashti ali hamed bin faraakhi wazir-el makbool ali.

In all the lavishness, this oblivion film has met its oblivion from the very beginning by having this rip off BLUE film director and choosing wrong color schematics to confuse audiences as to where these character come from? Audiences today are color coded, they think color coded and want to see their characters in that context... it's easier to see, Battle LA if color coded would have been much easier to pay attention to future film fareeys

Universal in Negotiations to pick up 'Horizons' With Tom Cruise in-talks to star

Quote:
Universal Pictures has emerged as the front-runner to finance and distribute Oblivion, the Joseph Kosinski-directed sci-fi project that has Tom Cruise in early talks to star. The studio has entered into exclusive negotiations for a deal that would carry progress to production language, with a goal to begin shooting in October. The deal hinges on Kosinski's ability to bring in the film at around the $100 million mark. It will be made as PG-13.
Source

I'm not really sure that Kosinski can get this epic sci-fi project made with a 100 million budget but we shall see.

It's interesting that Universal would go for this and not At the Mountains of Madness.

Well this would be PG-13 and have less budget than At the Moutains of Madness so it's a win win for Universal I guess, funny thing if Cruise is in this since he was attached to At the Moutains of Madness. I think it's possible Kosinski could make the movie with a $ 100 million dollar budget, that's quite much consider he's relativity new director.

When I first heard of this I thought it was an Elder Scrolls movie. Then after reading the premise, I thought it was very similar to the forthcoming Bioshock Infinite. However, after reading more it seems like it's a monster of it's own.

The story seems very complex and hugely FX-driven; hopefully they can pull it off with that tight budget.

Also, I'm thinking that 'Mountains' is probably very faithful to the book, as a non-conventional type of narrative and I don't think Universal is cool with that. Still, Disney is cool enough to let Jospeh pitch the movie at other studios. Why can' Universal do the same with 'Mountains'?

I'm not familiar with the property of Mountains ( i do know who Chtulu is) but it could be a right's issue where Universal has the rights .
Plus i think that GDT could've gone to other studios to pitch hte project but could've met the same resistance that he got with Uni.
Considering that Pacific Rim is fastracked , i guess he just said "screw 'em. I ain't got time to talk to studio exec. all day".



Going back to the topic , i'm definately interested that Uni and Cruise want to make this movie. However the fact they are strictly focusing on a 100 million budget worries me a bit.
Obviously you can do alot with 100 million , it just seems that the visuals warrant a bigger budget.
Besides they spend 200 million on Battleship .

The right issue is tricky since At the Mountains of Madness is not in public domain but I think Universal is keeping it right now since I think they want to make it but it's either that it will have less budget than what del Toro if it's R or make it PG-13 rating.

Oh and I hope Battleship bombs.

The article also mentions that Cruise is circling Pacific Rim. Anyway, glad to see this actually moving forward.

So the budget will be $ 100 million, I think it's possible that Kosinski could make the movie work with that budget.

And it's great that Cruise is confirmed.

No surprise there, Cruise and Del Toro seem to be keen to make a film together.

True, they passed on a Van Helsing reboot, settled on Mountains, which died and now he's being linked to Pacific Rim.

As for Oblivion, I found Tron Legacy passable, but I don't see how some hail Joseph Kranski or whatever his name is as some kind of wonder kid because of it.

I'm glad to see that Cruise wants to work with del Toro, it could be great if Cruise has a role in Pacific Rim, even if it's a small role.

Yes, Guillermo del Toro was attached to the new take on Van Helsing but it wasn't actually clear if he was going to direct it or not.

Glad this is getting made and Cruise being attached should give it some wait, but after seeing the production photo's i'm not sure if the $100 million budget will be enough, we'll see I suppose.

I'm doubly excited for this now that Cruise is involved because honestly that man doesn't make a bad film in my opinion.

My god, this film sounds incredible. I've always had a.....interest in the future of civilization in the 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th, 29th, 30th, etc centuries. I'm more of a horror fan as well as action (mostly horror), but this just sounds incredible.
