Tom Cruise is currently in talks to star in WE ARE MORTALS, the sci-fi adaptation of the Japanese novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka All You Need is Kill, according to THR. The epic high concept movie has Doug Liman attached to direct. Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt have also been considered for the role of the lead character in the movie.
Dante Harper penned the script that is reportedly a mix of “GROUNDHOG DAY and SOURCE CODE mixed with a futuristic alien invasion storyline. The film follows a” young, inexperienced private is killed in action, only to be reborn the day before, forced to repeat his fate. Eventually, he becomes a better warrior (that, and other circumstances are changing), which might be the key to altering the outcome.”
I am such a huge fan of Cruise and will literally see every movie that he’s in. I dont’t understand why some people dislike him. What do you think off this casting news?
Whta are your thoughts on Cruise possibly taking on the lead role in this film?
Here is a description of the story:
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?
