Warner Bros. Pictures has scored the film rights to Hiroshi Sakurazaka’s 2004 novel “All You Need is Kill” reports Deadline New York.
The story follows Keiji Kiriya, a young 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.
The project is being fast tracked to begin production within the next year. Dante Harper penned the script.
