ALL YOU NEED IS KILL Adaptation Officially Greenlit
Warner Bros. has officially given a green light for the Doug Liman-directed adaptation of the sci-fi graphic novel All You Need Is Kill, with Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt set to star.
Deadline reports that Warner Bros. has officially given the green light to All You Need Is Kill, an adaptation of the science fiction graphic novel of the same name. Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) will be directing, while Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt are set to star in the film. Erwin Stoff, Tom Lassally and Jason Hoffs are producing through 3 Arts Entertainment. Dante Harper wrote the script with executive producer Joby Harold.
Cruise began work on the movie last Friday in London. He recently completed production on another sci-fi graphic novel adaptation, Oblivion (which will be in theaters April 26th, 2013).
No release date for All You Need Is Kill has been announced yet, but expect an official announcement from WB in the near future. In the mean time, below is a plot summary of the graphic novel:
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?
