Morgan Freeman Joins Tom Cruise in Joseph Kosinski’s Futuristic Epic ‘Oblivion’

Oscar-winning acting legend (and go-to man for stentorian narration) Morgan Freeman has signed on to join the cast of Universal Pictures’ Oblivion, the upcoming epic sci-fi adventure from Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski.

The film, based on a comic book series created by Kosinski for Radical Publishing, takes place in a future where the surface of Earth has become too irradiated and infested by hostile aliens known as Scavengers to be inhabited by humans. Thus the remnants of mankind have taken to living in the clouds. But when a surface drone repairman named Jak discovers a mysterious woman in a crashed pod he is forced to question everything he has ever known.

Tom Cruise will play Jak alongside Freeman, Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace), and Andrea Riseborough (Never Let Me Go). The script was written by Oscar-winner William Monahan (The Departed) and Karl Gajdusek (Trespass) and is currently undergoing a rewrite by Michael Arndt (Little Miss Sunshine).

Oblivion (or Horizons as it also known) is scheduled to open on July 19, 2013.
