Jessica Chastain Looks To The “Horizons”

Jessica Chastain has scored one of the female leads in the sci-fi epic “Horizons” at Universal Pictures says Variety.

Set in a world where the Earth has become too toxic for humans who now live in cloud cities, Tom Cruise plays one of the last men on the surface – a repair man who discovers a mysterious woman has crash landed.

It’s unsure which of the two leads Chastain will play – the mysterious woman or Cruise’s wife. Olivia Wilde, Brit Marling, Noomi Rapace and Olga Kurylenko were also rumoured candidates the other month, the four are likely still in contention for the other role.

Joseph Kosinski (“Tron: Legacy”) directs from a script by Karl Gajdusek and William Monahan. Shooting kicks off this Winter.
