Diane Kruger is in the running to be cast as the second female lead in Oblivion, directed by Joseph Kasinski and starring Tom Cruise. Kruger is up against Kate Beckinsale and Hayley Atwell for the role of a “mysterious young woman” who crashes into earth and changes Cruise’s character’s life forever.
According to Deadline (via Comic Book Movies), the character, “lands on earth much to the shock of Cruise’s character, a soldier who is one of the last men on the planet in a post-apocalyptic future where most of the population lives in clouds above an earth surface that has been rendered uninhabitable. Cruise’s character is alone as he repairs the drones that patrol and destroy a savage alien life form, until he encounters a beautiful woman who crashes in a craft, and their experience together forces him to question his world view.”
Kruger made the cover of Esquire Czech Republic in nothing more than underwear and stockings.
