Jessica Chastain is Tom Cruise's futuristic post-apocalypse gal

09.26.2011

In a bleak sci-fi future, at least Tom Cruise will have a lovely lady to keep him company.

Jessica Chastain will join Cruise in director Joe Kosinski's next project (once called OBLIVION and then HORIZONS, but now untitled). Chastain beat out other "It Girl" contenders like Olivia Wilde and Noomi Rapace for the role.

After Disney dropped the project from the TRON LEGACY director, Universal snatched up the adaptation of Kosinski's graphic novel (from Radical Publishing) and got Cruise on board. It's already planned for release in July 2013.

The book synopsis: In a future where the Earth’s surface has been irradiated beyond recognition, the remnants of humanity live above the clouds, safe from the brutal alien Scavengers that stalk the ruins. But when surface drone repairman Jak discovers a mysterious woman in a crash-landed pod, it sets off an unstoppable chain of events that will force him to question everything he knows.

Chastain has been a hot commodity lately, with THE HELP, THE TREE OF LIFE and THE DEBT all hitting screens in the past few months.

Extra Tidbit: Chastain appeared in the last attempt to resurrect the supernatural soap DARK SHADOWS, which Johnny Depp and Tim Burton are now bringing to screens. She played Carolyn Stoddard in the unaired 2005 pilot, a role that Chloe Moretz will portray in the movie.

In no way does this sound like the 5th Element for me. More like Wall-E, with more action

This part, more specifically: " But when surface drone repairman Jak discovers a mysterious woman in a crash-landed pod, it sets off an unstoppable chain of events that will force him to question everything he knows."

Reminded me how Leeloo appeared and how it change Willis character's life.

She was good in The Help, so I like the casting. Was pulling for Olivia Wilde.

And upcoming "Take Shelter," "Coriolanus," and "The Texas Killing Fields." At this rate she's already threatening to be overexposed.
