    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 ...

    Universal Looking To Pick Up Joseph Kosinski's PG-13 'Oblivion' & Want Tom Cruise To Star

    Oh irony of ironies. Just over a month after Universal officially killed Guillermo Del Toro's $150 million, R-rated "At The Mountains Of Madness," it looks like the studio has not only found a cheaper, PG-13 replacement tentpole, they want Tom Cruise to star in it too.

    Disney Drops 'Horizons' (aka 'Oblivion') With 'Tron: Legacy' Director Joseph Kosinski

    For a while, it seemed that Disney was still total buds with Joseph Kosinski. The commercial director turned feature filmmaker made his feature length debut with "Tron: Legacy," the eye-opening franchise reboot of sorts that unfortunately underperformed with audiences and was met with lukewarm praise from fans. Regardless, the studio seemed to be plowing ahead with his graphic novel “Oblivion,” a property the studio picked up a while ago and was still actively developing. In fact, just a couple of weeks ago, Karl Gajdusek was brought on board to do a rewrite to the script -- now being called "Horizons" --- that also saw William Monahan take a...

    Exclusive: 'Tron: Legacy' Director Joseph Kosinski Talks Upcoming Projects 'Black Hole' & 'Oblivion'

    There's an early scene in "Tron: Legacy" where we get a look around Sam Flynn's room. We see that the young son of computer magnate Kevin Flynn (played by Jeff Bridges) has small toys based around the computer characters in the first movie and, briefly, we get a glimpse of a poster on his wall. It's "The Black Hole," an underrated sci-fi movie that Disney released in 1979 to middling box office returns. It's a movie where Anthony Perkins is killed by robots and has held up surprisingly well (certainly way better than the original "Tron"), thanks largely to its emphasis on moody atmospherics over "cutting edge" technology. The poster's placeme...
