While Tom Cruise has been the butt of many jokes over the past few years, it’s impossible to ignore just how awesome he is as an actor. He’s welcome into our genre anytime he wants, which is why it’s exciting that he’s joined the high concept All You Need Is Kill, reports Variety.
Based on the graphic novel, the original story is in the vein of Groundhog Day, with a twist: “A soldier in a war against aliens finds himself reliving 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.”
While a deal with the studio isn’t officially signed, Cruise has been weighing this role for some time after continued talks with director Doug Liman. The studio has already had the script rewritten to make the character fit Cruise’s age.
Dante Harper penned the script with Jody Harold doing the rewrite. Sources said Cruise liked the script so much that Liman traveled to Pittsburgh, where the thesp was shooting Paramount and Skydance’s “One Shot,” to meet with the actor about the role.
