Coster-Waldau Takes Flight With Cruise

February 14, 2012

Game of Thrones co-star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has joined the cast the of the untitled sci-fi saga previously called “Oblivion” and “Horizons” says Deadline.

Based upon director Joseph Kosinski‘s own graphic novel Oblivion which he created for Radical Comics the action is set in an apocalyptic future where most people live high in the sky due to Earth’s surface being uninhabitable, a soldier (Tom Cruise) stuck on the ground goes about his job repairing hunter drones which seek out and destroy members of a savage alien race. He soon comes upon a beautiful and mysterous woman (Andrea Riseborough-making her American film debut) whose craft has crashed nearby and together they set out on an epic adventure.

Coster-Waldau will play Sykes, an expert in weapons and military technology.

Olga Kurylenko co-stars as does Morgan Freeman who will have a small but critical role in the movie

Michael Arndt is said to have done a re-write of the adapted script by William Monahan and Karl Gajdusek.

Shooting kicks off next month in Louisiana
