The movie is directed by Doug Liman and stars Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Charlotte Riley, Kick Gurry, Dragomir Mrsic, Jonas Armstrong and Franz Drameh. The film is based on Hiroshi Sakurazaka novel All You Need Is Kill and is set in the near future when an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault and follows an officer who finds himself reliving his last day over and over after being killed. Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher, The Usual Suspects) has written the screenplay with Jez Butterworth & John-Henry Butterworth (Fair Game). Erwin Stoff (Constantine), Tom Lassally (Stay), Jason Hoffs, Gregory Jacobs (Magic Mike) and Jeffrey Silver (TRON: Legacy) are producing the project. Beck has taken over for composer Ramin Djawadi who was previously attached to score the film as reported last year.
