CHARLOTTE Riley is to star alongside Tom Cruise in his next film, All You Need Is Kill.

The British actress is hitherto best known for TV work including DCI Banks and the recently completed World Without End as well as Wuthering Heights alongside Tom Hardy, to whom she is currently engaged.

She joins fellow British actress Emily Blunt in the film, which is based on a graphic novel and is being directed by Doug Liman. It marks her first major Hollywood role.

The film itself sees Cruise playing a soldier in a war against aliens who relives his last day over and over again after being killed.

Through the training and battles he experiences in these time loops, he becomes a better soldier.

Riley and Blunt will both play soldiers who fight alongside him, according to the report on Variety.

Shooting on the movie is due to start on location in London this autumn.
