Tom Cruise is currently in talks to headline the sci-fi war thriller We Are Mortals, which was previously known as All You Need Is Kill.

Doug Liman is directing this story that puts a Groundhog Day like twist on an alien invasion that takes place in the distant future. When a new recruit, to be played by Tom Cruise, is killed in action, he is forced to relive the brutal battle of that day and the events leading up to it over and over again. Through this, he becomes a better warrior, and discovers a way to beat the aliens in battle.
