Tron director gets $100 million AND Tom Cruise for next movie

Is a Cruise film woth 100 million??Somebody must really like Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski. Not only did he just get $100 million for a project that was in danger of not happening just two months ago, but he landed Tom Cruise to star in it.

According to Deadline, Universal Pictures is ponying up the budget for Oblivion, a SF epic based on a graphic novel created by Kosinski (which will be out later this year), while Cruise has committed to starring in the picture. Production will begin in October on the film, which takes place in a post-apocalyptic future where most of humanity now lives in the clouds and the surface of the Earth has been ravaged by hostile aliens. Cruise will presumably play the main character, who fixes the drones that hunt down the aliens and finds a beautiful woman in a crashed spaceship who alters his view of the world.
