A couple of months ago it appeared Jessica Chastain was set to star opposite Tom Cruise in Joseph Kosinki’s upcoming sci-fi flick, which was previously titled Oblivion (and for a brief time Horizons). Now she’s out and Variety reports that Olga Kurylenko and Andrea Riseborough are in.
The film follows a futuristic soldier called Jack, who’s one of the few people stationed on Earth after surface of the planet 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.
It’s been previously reported that the two main female roles are Jack’s right-hand-man, Victoria, who acts as his eyes and ears on his repair mission, and Julia, who was his fiancee before the alien invasion. It isn’t clear which of those roles the actresses have signed up for.
Jessica Chastain had to pass on the role to pursue Kathryn Bigelow’s untitled Osama bin Laden. It isn’t certainly when the film will shoot.
