Tom Cruise has signed up for a mission in the future through ‘Oblivion’. The Oblivion is the sci-fi film and will be directed by Joseph Kosinski of ‘Tron Legacy’. Joseph Kosinski came up with the story and was developed into a graphical novel. The story was written by Arvid Nelson and Andree Wallin was the illustrator.

The movie, ‘Oblivion’ is set in a future where the surface of the Earth has been irradiated beyond recognition. The remnants of humanity live above the clouds and are safe from the brutal alien Scavengers which stalk the ruins. Nevertheless, when the surface drone repairman named Jak which was played by Tom Cruise will discover a mysterious woman in a crash-landed pop. It is setting off an unstoppable chain of events that will compel him to question everything that he knows.

Joseph Kosinski has said that he has envisioned the movie as a very spare silence fiction film with just a small cast but with big ideas as well as big landscapes. The project was rated PG-13 and it would start shooting in October with $100 million budget from Universal. The graphic novel is expected to be released later this year as predecessor of the movie.
