Bill Paxton is in talks to join Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt in the sci-fi thriller All You Need Is Kill, playing the head of a platoon of soldiers that includes a man (Cruise) who re-lives the day he dies over and over again — so, Groundhog Day, but with aliens. (Perhaps not surprisingly, it’s based on a Japanese graphic novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka.) Doug Liman (Mr. and Mrs. Smith) is directing from a script by Dante Harper (the upcoming Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters) and Joby Harold (Awake).
