Brad Pitt
Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise in the same movie? Could it happen despite the fact none of them have hit “The Expendables” portion of their career? Well, it could happen, but since both of them are mega-stars in their 50s who can still carry movies on their own, if I were their agents I’d say, “wait 10 more years, guys.”

Between "Public Enemies" and his currently in-production "Cyber," Michael Mann eyed a lot of potential projects and one of them was "Go Like Hell." And as it goes in Hollywood, some movies cross your desk and stay there and others drift away, and this one now finds itself in the hands of a duo that clearly enjoy working together.

While "Oblivion" and "Tron: Legacy" director Joesph Kosinski hasn't yet latched on to his next project yet, he's got some choices. He's long been attached to "The Black Hole" remake along with a 'Tron' sequel, while this summer he got nabbed for "The Twilight Zone" and has a sci-fi series brewing at AMC too. And now another gig has landed on his desk.

While the anticipated sequel (well, anticipated by nerds) to "Tron: Legacy" remains a thing that might happen at Disney (though we think with their slate full of Marvel movies and "Star Wars" sequels, it's probably not a big priority), director Joseph Kosinski is looking at some other options for his follow-up to this spring's sci-fi "Oblivion." And it looks like he wants to enter another dimension...a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind.

So, is AMC ready to go sci-fi? Well, it might be a smart play. The zombie genre has proven to be a massive success with the network, with "The Walking Dead" a big hit and it looks like they might want to see if sci-fi can do something similar.

It's difficult to determine the more nerve-wracking scenario for director Joseph Kosinski: Helming a much-anticipated sequel to "Tron" for Disney as his first feature, or following it up with an original, $120 million sci-fi concept with Tom Cruise in the lead. The movie, about the last man on Earth whose life is forever changed when spaceship containing a mysterious woman crash lands, launching him into an unexpected adventure, has already opened overseas to big audiences.

Tom Cruise, Oblivion
Only a few years ago, big sci-fi action spectacles were confined pretty much to the summer months. But now, the season has crept out to the extent that it essentially lasts from the middle of February (see the release of "A Good Day To Die Hard" this year) to... pretty much the rest of the year, with barely a few weeks going by without a major tent-pole arriving. Even the once-barren month of April isn't safe anymore, with the arrival of "Oblivion," an expensive, visually lavish sci-fi picture top-lined by megastar Tom Cruise.

You might not remember, but quite a few years ago, director Joseph Kosinski got attached to direct a remake of Disney's 1979 film "The Black Hole." This was in the midst of him gearing up "Tron: Legacy" and there hasn't bee much news about it since, but recently at WonderCon, Kosinski said it was still on his slate. "We've been working on the story for four years now," he shared with IGN, adding, "We got a really exciting idea for it. As long as the script can kind of deliver on that -- the interest is there on the studio side. It's going to have enough creative juices to have in order to dive back in. We got some exciting ideas -- so we'll see." And yes, Disney is interested.

Just when it looked like Tom Cruise's comeback was cemented thanks to "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol," the biggest hit of his career, the actor hit another dip, with neither "Rock Of Ages" or "Jack Reacher" setting the world on fire, and the latter looks increasingly unlikely to be the franchise starter that the actor and studio Paramount hoped it would be. But Cruise was ahead of the game, heading into territory he's rarely ventured into before -- hardcore science fiction -- with a pair of original sci-fi action movies coming up.

For his first feature film, Joseph Kosinski embraced the challenge set forth to him by Disney. Not only did he bring a unique visual eye to the blockbuster "Tron: Legacy" he eschewed a traditional score for a set of brand new compositions from Daft Punk, a pairing that proved to be a stroke of inspiration. Now gearing up his next effort, the sci-fi tale "Oblivion," Kosinski has once again chosen another exciting act to help tell his tale.
