Screenwriter Karl Gajdusek (Trespass) has been brought aboard to rewrite Horizons, a Disney project formerly known as Oblivion.

We reported in October that Oscar-winning screenwriter William Monahan (The Departed) came on board to write the screenplay, which is based on the Radical Publishing graphic novel Oblivion. Now Karl Gajdusek is taking over the writing duties for the project, which centers on a soldier guarding a lifeless planet, who eventually encounters a mysterious traveler.

Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski is attached to direct. Radical Pictures, the movie arm of Radical Publishing, is teaming up with Disney for the project. Joseph Kosinski, Barry Levine, and Jeffrey Silver will produce.

No production schedule was given for Horizons, although it is said this is a high priority for Disney.

Oblivion was released April 19th, 2013 and stars Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Melissa Leo, Zoe Bell, Abigail Lowe. The film is directed by Joseph Kosinski.

    Good director, Great writer. I just hope Disney shells a buncho money into this monster and make it an epic! Only prob is, if its a success they'll try and ruin it with a sequel.
