The studio has also set a July 19, 2013 release date for Joseph Kosinski's sci-fi pic Oblivion, starring Tom Cruise. The film is set in a future where the Earth's surface has been irradiated beyond recognition and the remnants of humanity live above the clouds, safe from the brutal alien Scavengers that stalk the ruins. When surface drone repairman Jak discovers a mysterious woman in a crash-landed pod, it sets off an unstoppable chain of events that will force him to question everything he knows.

FIVE A-LIST FEMMES TESTING FOR CRUISE'S 'OBLIVION' -- BUT DON'T CALL IT THAT

A virtual who's-who of actresses is testing this weekend for the Tom Cruise upcoming sci-fi epic, Variety's Jeff Sneider exclusively reports. But don't call it "Oblivion" -- Universal has scrapped that moniker for now, and is going with the working title "Horizons." As for those actresses vying to star opposite Cruise, it's Jessica Chastain, Olivia Wilde, Brit Marling, Noomi Rapace and Olga Kurylenko who will come in for auditions on Saturday. Cruise is set to star as Jack, a man who lives in the clouds above Earth and heads to its surface to repair drones that essentially keep the planet safe from an alien race that has all but wiped out humanity. "Horizons," directed by "Tron: Legacy" helmer Joe Kosinski, is set it for a July 19, 2013, release.

I wouldn't exactly call that list a who's who of actresses, my guess is Olivia Wilde will get the role.

Can see Wilde getting the role after them working together in Tron Legacy, although I prefer Olga when it comes to looks and acting.

Jessica Chastain Cast In 'Horizons'

Quote:
After a long search, Joseph Kosinski has settled on Jessica Chastain for one of the two female leads in Universal's untitiled sci-fier starring Tom Cruise.

Previously titled "Oblivion" and/or "Horizons," pic revolves around a soldier stationed on a future Earth, the surface of which was destroyed by aliens. When he discovers a mysterious woman in a crash-landed pod, it sets off a chain of events that cause him to question everything he knows.

Variety first reported in August that Chastain was one of several actresses who tested with Cruise; the list also included Olivia Wilde, Brit Marling and Noomi Rapace. There are two major female roles in the film -- the mysterious woman and Cruise's wife -- and it wasn't immediately known for which role Chastain was negotiating.

Insiders tell Variety that one of the actresses who tested could land the other lead.

Glad that Chastain is on-board, as she was the one I had hoped to land a role in the project.

I think Chastain will be the mysterious woman. She has quite an ethereal look about her. Now lets see if they actually cast someone within Cruise's age range to play his wife.

Things have changed I think, the woman in the pod is his fiance. The other woman is his sidekick/lover.

There are two key female characters -- Victoria, Jack's right-hand woman and lover who serves as his eyes and ears while he's on repair missions, and Julia, his fiancee on Earth before the alien invasion.

Hayley Atwell, Diane Druger, Kate Beckinsale Reading With Tom Cruise For ‘Oblivion’

EXCLUSIVE: The hot role for young actresses is in Universal’s Joseph Kosinski-directed Tom Cruise science fiction film Oblivion. Jessica Chastain already signed on for one of the two plum roles and I’m told the studio will read three actresses for the other female lead this weekend in Pittsburgh. That is where Cruise is shooting One Shot, playing Jack Reacher in the Christopher McQuarrie directed adaptation of the Lee Child novel series.

Captain America‘s Hayley Atwell, Inglourious Basterds’ Diane Kruger, and Kate Beckinsale have made it to the lightning round to play a mysterious young woman who crash lands on earth, much to the shock of Cruise’s character, a soldier who is one of the last men on the planet in a post apocalyptic future where most of the population lives in clouds above an earth surface that has been rendered uninhabitable. Cruise’s character is alone as he repairs the drones that patrol and destroy a savage alien life form, until he encounters a beautiful woman who crashes in a craft, and their experience together forces him to question his world view.

Universal committed to finance and distribute the $100 million film last April, after Disney let it go because it didn’t fit the family film mold. The script by William Monahan script got a rewrite from Karl Gajdusek. Kosinski hatched the idea for the project and set it to be published by Barry Levine’s Radical Media graphic novel imprint as a calling card for a movie when Kosinski was busy for so long directing Tron: Legacy. Chernin Entertainment’s Peter Chernin and Dylan Clark are producing along with Levine.

I have a feeling that the book like the Cowboys & Aliens comic, were all just designed as a pitching device for the eventual film adaptations.

Kurylenko and Riseborough Join Kosinski's Next

Source: Universal Pictures
January 19, 2012


Tom Cruise long since set to headline, Joseph Kosinksi's next project has now cast both of its female leads. Olga Kurylenko and Andrea Riseborough have been cast in the roles of Vika and Julia, respectively. One of them replaces the previously attached Jessica Chastain, though it was never determined which character she'd be playing.

Based on Kosinski's own Radical Publishing comic book series, the film takes place in a future where humanity has fallen to an irradiated Earth. Cruise plays Jak, a maintenance drone working on the planet's surface alongside another worker, Vika. When a woman, Julia, is discovered in a crashed ship, Jak's whole world is thrown into question and he finds himself strangely drawn towards Julia.

Kurylenko has starred in films like Quantum of Solace and Hitman. She'll soon appear in Terrence Malick's still-untitled next project (opposite Chastain) as well as in Martin McDonagh's Seven Psychopaths. Riseborough, meanwhile, is best known for Happy-Go-Lucky, Never Let Me Go and, most recently, Madonna's W.E..
