Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Heads to Oblivion

Based on Kosinski’s own Radical Publishing comic book series, the film takes place in a future where humanity has fallen to an irradiated Earth. Cruise plays Jak, a maintenance drone working on the planet’s surface alongside another worker, Vika (Olga Kurylenko). When a woman, Julia (Andrea Riseborough), is discovered in a crashed ship, Jak’s whole world is thrown into question and he finds himself strangely drawn towards Julia.

Coster-Waldau is said to be playing a military expert named Sykes.

The news comes on the heels of this weekend’s announcement that Morgan Freeman will star as well.
