Tom Cruise signs on for sci-fi flick 'All You Need Is Kill'?

Unlike counterparts Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise doesn't seem to have plans to step out from in front of the camera.

The actor is reportedly lining up another project, this time sci-fi film "All You Need Is Kill," according to Deadline. The movie's being adapted from the Japanese novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, and tells the story of an inexperienced soldier who initially gets killed in battle with aliens, but continues to relive the same day as he realizes that the end game could change.

Deadline reports that Cruise is working on the details surrounding the deal, but in the meantime, he has quite a few irons in the fire. He's starring in this month's "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" (out December 21), next year's "Rock of Ages" and then his Jack Reacher film, "One Shot," in 2013.

    This is the most fun I've had in a week. The comments here are a sublime waste of time, but hilarious in their juvenile content. I guess I really didn't expect anything objective, but the spelling errors!! How did any of these people get out of grade school? And that's the answer... none of them have. Haw!!

    Tom rocks! Been watching his career develop since the beginning, and wish I had an ounce of his smarts and dedication. Don't ever seriously see Tom Cruise retiring from acting. He's just too comitted to what he does, and obviously loves his work, and it shows.

    I would almost rather be dead than go to work tomorrow. I will be there though. ILL go to work and take care of my family and pay taxes so other people wont have to. One of these days I might work long enough to retire though. Maybe then I can sleep a little later.

    The only benefit of not being in prison is you can see terrible first run movies and you can travel around and look at scenery you donmt want to see anyways. I work-i am one of the stupid.

    yeah. workin is for losers. today is your sunday and tomorrow morning you will have to get up early and go work for some bully jerk that treats you like you arent even a person with feelings. you will get treated really bad for not much money, then the government will take most of what you earned in taxes. Protective custody or segregation in prison is better than worning tody. Plus in prison you get free medical care. In segregation you are protected from the other inmates, have 3 squares, and y i free medical care. heat. air conditiooning, and can watch tv or read all day. Why would anyone in todays US even want a job?

    Why should anyone work? Today you can draw 99 weeks of unemployment checks and congress is debating extending these benefits. Thats almost a free 2 year vacation. Ive heard the checks are often as much as 1200 plus every 2 weeks. That is pretty good money fo resting and watching The Price Is Right. If I were getting that much free money I sure wouldnt be whining about not having a job. Thats almost what I make and my job is living heck.

    All You Need is Kill resembles Source Code. The two movies attempt to replay events which already occurred. Good concept that explores the mystery of death and what life can mean when you can change the outcome (The Butterfly Effect).

    Every single time I come to this blog just to see if it has changed any, always disappointed but not surprised to find the same stupid a** juveniles playing on their computers and fighting with imaginary people. And saying nothing relevant, important,or anything that anyone but YOU gives a shout about! You are wasting space and your time by trying to be all these different people and fighting with yourself. Its just so stupid.your pathetic and a sorry loser. Think about it and how stupid you appear. You should be embarrassed. Try going to another blog and LEARN something.

    Tom Cruise is a horrile actor, he plays the same charater over and over again. I won't see a movie he's in because it's just a vehicle for his selfgrandization. and a waste of money Total Napoleon complex ....

You know you could be a garbage collector or pick vegetables like the Hispanics. Guess you are too lazy to do that you P O S.
