Although she may not be the first person you think of when you hear the title "All You Need is Kill," Emily Blunt is in talks to co-star with Tom Cruise in the Warner Bros. sci-fi thriller.
"Kill" is being reported as an action spin on the "Groundhog Day" formula. Cruise plays a futuristic soldier who must continually re-live the day of his death at the hands of a vicious alien invasion until he can figure a way out of the time-loop.
Doug Liman ("The Bourne Identity," "Jumper") is directing.
Currently starring in "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen," Blunt will next be seen in the Judd Apatow-produced comedy "The Five Year Engagement" and, later, alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis in the sci-fi film "Looper."
She recently starred opposite Matt Damon in the sci-fi drama "The Adjustment Bureau."
