Collider is reporting that Jessica it’s on a list of actress poised to test oppsite Tom Cruise in his upcoming project, Joseph Kosinski’s (Tron: Legacy) sci-fi film Horizons. Jessica Chastain, Olivia Wilde, Noomi Rapace, Brit Marling and Olga Kurylenko are the thesps vying that will vie the role this Saturday. Additionally, Universal has scrapped the title Oblivion and is now referring to the project by its former working title Horizons for the time being.
The story takes place in an apocalyptic future that finds humans living in clouds above the uninhabitable Earth, and Cruise plays a soldier relegated to staying on the planet to work on drones that seek out and destroy a savage alien life form.
There are two key female roles in the film: a woman named Victoria who is Cruise’s “right-hand man and lover” and keeps him company while he’s repairing drones, and Julia, his fiancee before Earth was invaded. There’s no word on whether the actresses are all testing for the same part, different parts, or both roles simultaneously.
