Charlotte Riley Joins The Cast Of ALL YOU NEED IS KILL
Tom Hardy's fiancee (who was actually considered for the role of Selina Kyle/Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises) has been cast in her first major Hollywood role, Warner Bros.' adaptation of All You Need Is Kill. Hit the jump for details on her character and more.
Showblitz has learned that Charlotte Riley (the fiancee of The Dark Knight Rises and Lawless star Tom Hardy) has joined the cast of All You Need Is Kill, Warner Bros.' adaptation of the science fiction graphic novel of the same name. The film will be directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity), while Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt are set to star. Riley was at one point considered for the role of Selina Kyle/Catwoman in TDKR, in which Hardy plays the villainous Bane. Despite appearing in several British television series/telepics, this will be her first major Hollywood role. Riley will be playing "a soldier who, along with Emily Blunt, fights alongside Cruise's character in a war against aliens."
Cruise recently began work on All You Need Is Kill in London, shortly after wrapping Universal Pictures' Oblivion. No release date has been confirmed yet, but WB should (hopefully) announce one in the near future. 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?
