Morgan Freeman Joins Tom Cruise In Oblivion

Morgan Freeman is the latest name to be added to the cast list of Oblivion, the Joseph Kosinski-directed film for Universal Pictures. He joins star Tom Cruise, and Hitman‘s Olga Kurylenko. In the film, Cruise plays the last man on a post-apocalyptic and nearly uninhabitable Earth, who stays behind to repair ships that hunt down and blast a virulent alien species.

Freeman’s role is described as being a “critical part” to the story, according to Deadline.

The Pulse: With Michael Arndt (Little Miss Sunshine, Toy Story 3) rewriting the script, this could help Oblivion from being just another flash in the pan post-apocalyptic tale to a story that has colorful characters. Morgan Freeman, who previously appeared in the Universal Pictures’ releases Wanted, Bruce Almighty (and its spin-off Evan Almighty), will next be seen in The Dark Knight Rises reprising his role as Lucius Fox.
