Loved Looper? Then you might want to mark March 14, 2014, on your calendar. Warner Bros. has announced its futuristic thriller All You Need Is Kill, starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, will hit theaters that day. Doug Liman (Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Jumper) is directing.
Like a sci-fi-tinged Groundhog Day, the 2010 Black List pick finds Cruise’s Lt. Col Bill Cage battling against a race of aliens called the Mimics. Though he’s quickly killed, he wakes up moments later and is forced to relive the day of his death repeatedly, even as he grows closer to defeating his foes. Blunt plays a tough Special Forces fighter who goes into the fray alongside Cruise.
