Tom Cruise Close To ‘All You Need Is Kill’

BREAKING: Tom Cruise is ready to roll on All You Need Is Kill. He’s committing to the film, and Warner Bros is speeding it toward production as fast as it can with Doug Liman directing the Dante Harper script that has been rewritten by Joby Harold. Cruise will have to square that with a commitment to star in the Joseph Kosinski-directed Oblivion, which has Jessica Chastain playing one of the two female leads, and Universal testing a small list of actresses for the other role in the futuristic apocalyptic tale.

Kill is a project Cruise has been mulling for months and now they are sorting out the schedule for an actor who certainly has regained his leading-man mojo. He’ll next be seen in Rock Of Ages, and is shooting the Christopher McQuarrie-directed One Shot, though he’s right now on an international tour for Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol. Read More »
