EMILY Blunt is in talks to star alongside Tom Cruise in his new sci-fi thriller All You Need Is Kill.

The Doug Liman directed movie is described by Warner Bros as ‘a sci-fi war film with a twist’.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the plot will see Cruise playing a raw recruit who is killed in action but who, in a Groundhog DaymeetsSource Code-style twist, gets reborn each day to fight and die again.

Over the course of the day, he begins trying to train himself to be a better soldier in the hope of changing his fate.

Blunt would play a character named Valkyrie One, one of humankind’s best soldiers.

The British actress opens in UK cinemas this week in Salmon Fishing In The Yemen and will shortly be seen opposite Jason Segel in Universal’s comedy The Five-Year Engagement.

She also stars opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the time-travel action thriller Looper, which is due to open in September.
