Emily Blunt Joins 'ALL YOU NEED IS KILL' Starring Tom Cruise

ShowBlitz reports that British actress Emily Blunt is now in talks to join Doug Liman's (Bourne Identity) adaptation of the manga All You Need Is Kill which stars Tom Cruise. Blunt is quickly becoming the go-to leading lady starring in dramatic, comedies and now sci-fi actioners. She has the comedy Five-Year Engagement later this month with action sci-fi thriller Looper coming in September. Warner Bros. who is making this film had wanted Blunt for The Man From U.N.C.L.E. before Guy Ritchie came on as the producer and was put on hold.

It's interesting to see how Emily is placing herself into action roles since she eventually missed on out the Black Widow role. I still think that if any actress working today deserves her own action franchise it's Blunt who is equally comedic, witty and charming. Here's hoping that Marvel ends up knocking on her door again.
