    Brit Marling, Jessica Chastain, Olivia Wilde, Noomi Rapace & Olga Kurylenko Testing For 'Oblivion'

    Film Now Titled 'Horizon'Throughout all the negative PR of the last few years, Tom Cruise remains undeterred, awesomely acting as if he is still Hollywood's biggest star. After the somewhat-dicey "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol" this holiday season, he's got a no-fail supporting role in "Rock Of Ages" followed by crime picture "One Shot" arriving in 2013, a pretty decent slate for a guy some audiences still consider toxic. After that, Cruise is going big, returning to the genre that served him well in "War Of The Worlds" and "Vanilla Sky" with Joseph Kosinki's "Horizon," formerly titled "Oblivion," and its currently casting two lovely ...
