Tom Cruise's upcoming sci-fi film gets a Comic-Con panel and a new title

Tom Cruise’s upcoming sci-fi film is getting a splashy presentation at this weekend’s Comic-Con, courtesy of Warner Bros. — and a new name to boot.

Formerly known as All You Need is Kill, the movie — which is directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Mr. and Mrs. Smith) and due in theaters June 6, 2014 — is now titled Edge of Tomorrow. Cruise stars as a futuristic soldier who gets caught in a time loop and has to fight the same battle against alien invaders and die over and over again. Fortunately he gets more skilled and learns new tactics with each go-round. Emily Blunt co-stars but no word yet on who will attend the film’s July 20 panel at the annual San Diego Comic-Con.

Jerry Bruckheimer still planning 'Top Gun' sequel

No one knows the Hollywood franchise game better than Jerry Bruckheimer, the producer behind Pirates of the Caribbean, National Treasure, Beverly Hills Cop, and the upcoming Lone Ranger. During his more than 35 years of making movies, most of his giant blockbusters have yielded big-budget sequels — except the one that moviegoers are perhaps the hungriest to revisit: Top Gun. After years of planning to send Tom Cruise’s rebel flyboy back into the sky were interrupted by the tragic death of director Tony Scott, who helmed the 1986 original, Bruckheimer says Top Gun 2 is still a Go.

“We still want to do it with Tom, and Paramount are still interested in making it,” Bruckheimer told an audience at Sunday’s Produced By conference. “What Tom tells me is that no matter where he goes in the world, people refer to him as Maverick. It’s something he is excited about, so as long as he keeps his enthusiasm hopefully we’ll get it made.”

If Top Gun 2 seems like an inevitability, Bruckheimer sounds more prudent about the Lone Ranger, the expensive Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer western that rides into theaters July 3. Clearly, it’s designed as a franchise — but then again, so was The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. “Hopefully The Lone Ranger will continue as a sequel,” Bruckheimer said. “It’s always up to the audience. If the audience likes the movie, then Disney will come to me and we’ll make another, or it will be a one-off.”

Tom Cruise drops out of 'Man from U.N.C.L.E.'

Even tallest-building-in-the-world-climber action star Tom Cruise has his limits. The guy cannot be in two places at once. Cruise was set to star in the Warner Bros. big screen adaptation of 1960s spy series Man from U.N.C.L.E., but his role as another secret agent in another franchise based on a mid-century TV show is getting in the way. He has dropped out of Man from U.N.C.L.E. due to Mission: Impossible 5 scheduling, EW has confirmed. Deadline first reported the news.

This isn’t the first time the long-in-development Man from U.N.C.L.E. movie has had a talent change-up. At one point, George Clooney was attached to star, with Steven Soderbergh directing. Now Guy Ritchie is gearing up to direct the project, about a pair of agents work for the international agency U.N.C.L.E, or, United Network Command for Law and Enforcement. Armie Hammer (The Social Network) is still attached to the film. READ FULL STORY
