The Sci-Fi epic from director Joe Kosinski (Tron Legacy) and starring Tom Cruise is being fast tracked by Universal. Variety reports that they are already looking a female lead. Jessica Chastain, Olivia Wilde, Brit Marling, Noomi Rapace and Olga Kurylenko are among those being tested for the lead. It is also reported that they are dropping the title of Oblivion to a the working title of Horizon so as to not be confused with the video game Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. I feel this is a smart move because I remember first hearing of this project I mistook it for the video game as well. Although I believe Oblivion is a better title, so I would try to find a better title than Horizon.
Horizon is set for a July 19, 2013, release.Cool Posts Around The Web:
