Oblivion star Tom Cruise has signed on to star in the sci-fi adaptation Yukikaze for Warner Bros.

The story is based on Chohel Kamayashi's sci-fi novel series which is set in the early 21st Century, three decades after an alien force known as JAM invaded Earth through a portal over Antarcica. The humans form an elite combat force to take out the alien threat on their home planet. No details were given for Tom Cruise's character.

Erwin Stoff and Tom Lassally are producing through their 3Arts company, alongside Viz Media's Jason Hoffs. No writer or director has been attached to the project at this time.

Tom Cruise will next be seen in Oblivion, opening in theaters this weekend, and in next year's All You Need Is Kill.
