Two join cast of previously titled Horizons

20 Jan 2012
Unlike the film, these cast members have names.
Olga Kurylenko and Andrea Riseborough are set to slot into roles in the upcoming Joseph Kosinski directed sci-fi film which is currently without a name. The film, which also stars Tom Cruise, was originally titled Oblivion before a brief stint as Horizons. Kurylenko replaces Jessica Chastain who recently signed up to Kathryn Bigelow's Osama Bin Laden assassination drama. Scheduling conflicts mean that she is unable to take on this project. Meanwhile, Riseborough will slot into the second female lead role having bested the likes of Hayley Atwell, Diane Kruger and Kate Beckinsale.

The film is based on a graphic novel from Kosinski and takes place in the future. 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. Naturally, one incident sets off a chain of events that cause one surface drone repairman (Cruise) to question everything he knows. Filming is rumoured to start very soon.
