Despite director Doug Liman not having the most consistent track record for quality (Go, The Bourne Identity, Jumper), I can’t help but be excited for All You Need Is Kill. The film is based on a novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka in which the main character – renamed to Cruise’s Lt. Col. Bill Cage – heads to battle in the last siege against an alien race attacking Earth. He’s killed on the first day, but for some unknown reason, is caught in a time loop that sends him back to the beginning of the first day. His battle, as is the case in many sci-fis, evolves into that against his own fate. As he’s resurrected time and time again, he becomes a more proficient soldier; his skills becoming more effective.
The film has been filming in the UK for the last few months. Here are the latest set pictures, also featuring the lovely Emily Blunt playing a character named Rita Vrataski (aka. Full Metal Bitch). Awesome.
All You Need Is Kill opens March 7 next year.
