Apparently the world does really love themselves some Game of Thrones.
Deadline reports that another one of the stars from the hit HBO show, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, has joined the cast of the upcoming Tom Cruise-starring and Joseph Kosinski-directed sci-fi thriller, Oblivion.
The film is being set up at Universal, and will follow the story of a man who discovers a woman in a crashed pod who must come to terms with this post-apocalyptic world, where humans are forced to live above the clouds, due to Earth being simply impossible to live on. The film is based off of Kosinskiâ€™s own graphic novel.
This isnâ€™t Coster-Waldauâ€™s only brush with film, heâ€™ll next be seen in the film Headhunters as well as the Guillermo Del Toro-produced Mama, which recently wrapped. Personally, while Iâ€™m not all that familiar with his work, having not seen the show, I do really like this premise, and Cruise has always been an appealing actor. Toss in Kosinski, and you have the makings of a sci-fi film definitely worth keeping an eye on.
