Back in April, we brought you the news when Emily Blunt (The Five-Year Engagement, The Adjustment Bureau) joined the cast of director Doug Liman‘s (Fair Game, Jumper 2) big screen adaptation of Hiroshi Sakurazaka’s novel All You Need Is Kill, starring Tom Cruise (Oblivion)
Now, Deadline reports that Warner Bros. Pictures has officially greenlit the project, and Cruise is currently prepping for the shoot over in London.
There’s one thing worse than dying. It’s coming back to do it again and again . . . When the alien Gitai invade, Keiji Kiriya is just one of many raw recruits shoved into a suit of battle armor and sent out to kill. Keiji dies on the battlefield, only to find himself reborn each morning to fight and die again and again. On the 158th iteration though, he sees something different, something out of place: the female soldier known as the Bitch of War. Is the Bitch the key to Keiji’s escape, or to his final death?
All You Need Is Kill is slated to hit theaters in 2013.
