British actress Charlotte Riley has landed a role alongside Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt in All You Need Is Kill for Warner Bros. This marks her first major role within the Hollywood system.

The story is based on Hiroshi Sakurazaka's graphic novel, that centers on a soldier who is killed during an ongoing war between human and alien forces. He mysteriously keeps reliving his last day on Earth over and over again, eventually becoming a better soldier each time he steps into battle. Charlotte Riley plays a fellow soldier fighting alongside Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt.
