Whoever wins the role better thank her lucky stars. Back in March, it was announced that Tom Cruise would be starring in Joseph Kosinski’s “Oblivion” with Jessica Chastain joining the film just last month.
It is being reported that the sought after role to star alongside Cruise in the upcoming “Oblivion” film will have a read with “Captain America: The First Avenger”‘s Haley Atwell, “Unknown”‘s Diane Kruger and “Underworld” star Kate Beckinsale this weekend in Pittsburgh.
Deadline reports that the three actresses 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.
The sci-fi film is budgeted at $100 million with a script by William Monahan that got a rewrite from Karl Gajdusek.
