Tom Cruise seems big on sci-fi at the moment, having tried to get At The Mountains Of Madness off the ground and currently preparing to film Joseph Kosinski’s Horizons. Now it seems he’s got another as THR hints that he is currently in talks to headline the sci-fi war thriller We Are Mortals, which was previously known as All You Need Is Kill.
Doug Liman is directing this from that puts a Groundhog Day style twist on an alien invasion that takes place in the distant future. When a new recruit is killed in action, he is forced to relive the brutal battle of that day and the events leading up to it over and over again. Through this, he becomes a better warrior, and discovers a way to beat the aliens in battle.
It should be noted THR only gives this a passing mention and it sounds as if it’s a long way from being signed (last we heard Warner wanted Brad Pitt). It isn’t clear when the film will go before cameras. No further information on a production start date has been offered at this time.
We Are Mortals comes to theaters in 2013. The film is directed by Doug Liman.
