Tom Cruise Will Star In All You Need Is Kill

Variety reports that Tom Cruise has landed the lead role in the film All You Need Is Kill based on the Japanese manga. A lot of names had been attached or linked to the project which included Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Cruise is at the point in his career where he's still believable as an action star and is going all out with his next couple of films. He's already set to star in the science fiction action film Oblivion/Horizons and Mission Impossible 4 is about to be released this month. The latter is expected to be his last of the franchise handing it off to Jeremy Renner.

There are a few connections to Jeremy Renner with this project as well since the film's script was originally written by Dante Harper. Dante recently wrote Renner's upcoming horror comedy Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters that Renner co-stars with Gemma Arterton. It will be directed by Doug Liman (Mr. And Mrs. Smith) who directed the first Bourne film Identity. Another franchise that Renner will be taking over with Bourne Legacy.
