Tom Cruise Heads for Joseph Kosinski’s Oblivion

3 Comments

Tom CruiseOr “Horizons”. Or maybe it’s “Oblivion” again. Whatever they end up calling it, Tom Cruise has officially signed on to star in the expensive sci-fi film for Universal and “Tron: Legacy” director Joseph Kosinski.

Kosinksi will direct the $100 million dollar movie from a script by William Monahan (“The Departed”), with Cruise playing “a soldier who’s stuck alone on the planet, repairing the drones that patrol and destroy a savage alien life form. He encounters a beautiful woman who crashes in a craft, and their experience together forces him to question his world view.”

“Oblivion” has been in development for some time, with Kosinski even publishing a comic book version with Radical Publishing first. Production is set for this October.

      I believe it’s an original story by Kosinski.

    Doesn’t that remind you of the Wall-E movie story?
