Bill Paxton Relives ‘All You Need is Kill’ With Tom Cruise

Near-Dark-Bill Paxton

Aliens, Near Dark and Terminator star Bill Paxton is in negotiations to join Tom Cruise in All You Need is Kill, a sci-fi action movie at Warner Bros.

Doug Liman is directing the movie, which sees Cruise as a raw recruit who gets killed in action but, in Groundhog Day fashion, is reborn each day to fight and die again and again. He begins trying to train himself to be a better soldier in hopes of changing his fate.

Paxton would play a tough-as-nails platoon sergeant described in the script as “a living piece of leather.” Emily Blunt is on board as a fellow soldier who has figured out the time loop.

A fall shoot in London is scheduled. Erwin Stoff, Tom Lassally and Jason Hoffs are producing. Jon Berg is overseeing for the studio.
