Joseph Kosinski’s sci-fi flick, Horizons, already has Tom Cruise and Jessica Chastain attached to star, but according to Deadline, there is one more female lead role open, and actresses Kate Beckinsale, Hayley Atwell, and Diane Kruger are vying to land it.
The European actresses will all read for the role in Pittsburgh this weekend, where Tom Cruise is shooting One Shot (when you get to be as big as Tom Cruise, the world comes to you rather than the other way around). The role is a female pilot who crash lands on Earth, which is now only inhabited by drones after the planet became too toxic for humans. Tom Cruise plays one of the last men on Earth, a drone mechanic who discovers the wreckage and goes on a journey of discovery with the woman.
Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy) will direct Horizons from a screenplay by Karl Gajdusek, who rewrote William Monahan’s initial draft. The project is based on the graphic novel Joseph Kosinski co-created for Radical Publishing.
