planet's remaining vital resources, he lives in an airborne "town" floating thousands of feet above the Earth after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, and his mission is nearly complete. Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet
above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautiful stranger (Olga Kurylenko) from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands! In addition, after
being captured by an insurgency led by 102 year-old Malcolm Beech (Morgan Freeman), Jack is told that the society in which he lives may in fact be a police state.
THRONES Nikolaj Coster Waldau (plays a battle hardened, intelligent and highly athletic military weapons expert) are also in the cast.
As you remember from HOLLYWOOD SPY's reports from previous years, tones of young actresses have auditioned for two of the female roles in the film - one of a girl on the planet and the other who helps Jack from above the surface. Before Olga Kurylenko got the role of Julia, Olivia Wilde, Noomi Rapace, Kate Mara, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Brit Marling had auditioned for the role! Meanwhile, Diane Kruger, Hayley Atwell and Kate Beckinsale were considered for the role of Victoria which later on went to unknown Andrea Riseborough. The illustrated novella written by Kosinski upon which the film is based is being held for release to coincide with the film premiere.
