It has been extremely silent on Warner Bros’ upcoming All You Need is Kill Adaptation. Last we heard was that Tom Cruise was top-lining the film which would also star Emily Blunt, but that was about it.
Word has come in today that Bill Paxton (pictured right) is currently in negotiations to star in the film, if cast he will play the tough leader of Cruise’s platoon according to Variety.
The film is about “a soldier (Cruise) in a war against aliens who relives his last day over and over after being killed. Through the training and battles he experiences in these time loops, he becomes a better soldier.”
Doug Liman is attached to direct from a script penned by Dante Harper with Joby Harold, who is currently doing a rewrite.
Production is slated to start later this Fall in London.
