Bill Paxton In Talks To Join ALL YOU NEED IS KILL
Hatfields & McCoys actor Bill Paxton is in negotiations to join Tom Cruise in Warner Bros.' upcoming adaptation of the sci-fi graphic novel All You Need Is Kill, which will be directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity). Read on for more details.
Bill Paxton recently wrapped production on Universal Pictures' graphic novel adaptation 2 Guns, but now he's eying another comic book based film. Variety reports that Hatfields & McCoys actor Bill Paxton is in negotiations for a key role in Warner Bros.' upcoming graphic novel adaptation All You Need Is Kill, which has Tom Cruise attached to star and Doug Liman set to direct. Emily Blunt and Charlotte Riley are also starring in the science fiction film. The story follows a soldier (played by Cruise) reliving his last day in a war against aliens over and over again. According to the site, Paxton is playing the tough leader of Cruise's platoon. The film is expected to begin production in London later this fall.
No release date for All You Need Is Kill has been announced yet, but Warner Bros. 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?
