Tom Cruise Goes Into OBLIVION
Tom Cruise is taking a new leap into the future by joining the cast of the upcoming movie adaptation of Arvid Nelson’s yet to be published graphic novel OBLIVION.
In Oblivion, the world is in ruins after being destroyed by an alien invasion. Cruise will play Jak, a human who goes to earth to hunt down the aliens. As is stands now, the movie has a big budget: 100$ million and has the potential to be a blockbuster as it will be directed by Joseph Kosinski (Tron Legacy) who also happens to be a co-author of the book.
Here is the current synopsis of the movie:
A court martial sends a veteran soldier to a distant planet, where he is to destroy the remains of an alien race. The arrival of an unexpected traveler causes him to question what he knows about the planet, his mission, and himself. Source: Imdb
Oblivion will soon come out as a hardcover through Random House. The movie on the other hand is still in Pre-production.
