Rapace, Chastain & More Up For “Horizons”

Noomi Rapace (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”), Jessica Chastain (“The Tree of Life”), Olivia Wilde (“Tron: Legacy”), Brit Marling (“Another Earth”) and Olga Kurylenko (“Quantum of Solace”) are all auditioning for Joseph Kosinski’s sci-fi epic “Horizons” at Universal Pictures says Variety.

Originally titled “Oblivion” and based on the comic from Radical Publishing, the film is set in an apocalyptic future where most people live high in the sky due to Earth’s surface being uninhabitable.

Tom Cruise plays a soldier stuck on the ground who goes about his job repairing hunter drones that seek out and destroy members of a savage alien race. He soon comes upon a beautiful woman whose craft has crashed nearby and together they set out on an epic adventure.

Karl Gajdusek and William Monahan worked on the script for the project which was originally setup at Disney but is now at Universal.
