Bill Paxton looking to join Tom Cruise in All You Need Is Kill

Bill Paxton and Tom Cruise, together for the first time? Looks that way!

Variety is reporting that Paxton is on the verge of joining Cruise, Emily Blunt and Charlotte Riley in ALL YOU NEED IS KILL, the ambitious sci-fi epic to be directed by Doug Liman.

Based on the 2004 Japanese novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, the story is told from the first person point of view of the protagonist Keiji Kiriya. Keiji is a new recruit in the United Defense Force, fighting against the mysterious creatures called 'Mimics' which have laid siege to Earth. Keiji is killed on his first sortie, but through some inexplicable phenomenon wakes up having returned to the day before the battle, only to find himself caught in a time loop as his death and resurrection repeats time and time again. Keiji's skills as a soldier grows as he passes through the time loops trying to change his fate.

Paxton will play the tough leader of Cruise's platoon. So not an redux of Pvt. Hudson, then...

3 Arts Entertainment is producing the film for Warner Bros.; production looks like it will commence later this year in London.
