Bill Paxton is in negotiations to board Doug Liman's sci-fi action film All You Need Is Kill. Tom Cruise stars in the Warner Bros. project alongside Emily Blunt and Charlotte Riley.

The film is an adaptation of a graphic novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka that centers a soldier (Tom Cruise), who is fighting an alien war. He is forced to relive his death in a continual time loop becoming a better soldier with each pass. Bill Paxton will portray the soldier's demanding platoon leader.

Doug Liman is directing from a script by Dante Harper and Joby Harold. Erwin Stoff, Tom Lassally and Jason Hoffs of 3 Arts Entertainment are producing.

Bill Paxton was most recently seen playing Randall McCoy in History's Hatfields & McCoys, and as John Kane in Steven Soderbergh's action film Haywire.

Production begins later this fall in London.

Edge of Tomorrow was released June 6th, 2014 and stars Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Brendan Gleeson, Bill Paxton, Jonas Armstrong, Tony Way, Kick Gurry, Franz Drameh. The film is directed by Doug Liman.
