Tom Cruise To Fight Some “Mortals”

Tom Cruise is in talks to star in Doug Liman’s sci-fi war thriller “We Are Mortals” at Warner Bros. Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on Hiroshi Sakurazaka’s 2004 novel “All You Need is Kill”, the story follows a new recruit sent out to fight off an alien invasion and finding himself in a Groundhog Day-esque scenario of dying on the battlefield and being reborn each day.

Five months into this cycle though, he notices something different than the previous versions – a female soldier who may be the key to his escape. Dante Harper adapted the script.

Brad Pitt had previously been offered the role in the “Groundhog Day-meets-Halo” film. No production schedule has yet been set.
