The Oscar-winning actress has joined the cast of Tom's new sci-fi thriller Oblivion, Deadline reports, while rapper TI told Forbes that he is joining big-budget sci-fi war film We Mortals Are, also starring Tom.

Oblivion is being directed by Tron Legacy's Joseph Kosinski and is set in an apocalyptic future, where people live above a ruined Earth, which is patrolled by drones put there to fight off alien invasion.

Tom will play a man stationed on Earth to repair the drones, with his only contact with civilisation above being his lover, played by Olga Kurylenko.

Melissa will join Tom, Olga, Morgan Freeman and Andrea Riseborough in the project due for release next April.

We Mortals Are is to be directed by Doug Liman and is an adaptation of a novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka about a soldier in a futuristic war, who finds himself living the last day before his death on an endless loop.
