OBLIVION screenwriter Karl Gajdusek on working with Tom Cruise

Oblivion

Hanging out with Tom Cruise at his house seems like it would be the highlight of anyone’s screenwriting career. Writer Karl Gajdusek had the chance to do just that when he worked on a rewrite of Oblivion, the new sci-fi action movie coming out April 19.

“He’s a very good collaborator,” said Gajdusek of the experience he had working out of Cruise’s house for about three weeks during one phase of the process. “That’s not to say that he didn’t win arguments. He usually wins the argument.”

Gajdusek laughed at the idea of trying to win an argument against Cruise, but also said that if you don’t fight back, you’re not doing your job.
