Tom Cruise is sticking with science fiction projects for the time being. After Oblivion opened to a $61 million internationally, the star is has taking the lead role in Yukikaze, Warner Bros.’ adaptation of Chohei Kambayashi’s sci-fi novels.
Deadline reports that All You Need Is Kill producers Erwin Stoff and Tom Lassally will produce the movie along with Viz Media’s Jason Hoffs. Yukikaze “unfolds in the early 21st century, three decades after the alien force JAM invaded earth through a dimensional porthole that appeared over Antarctica. While humans beat back the attack, they form a special combat force to eradicate the alien threat on its home planet.”
Of course, this isn’t the only movie Cruise has coming up. In addition to the sci-fi flicks Oblivion and All You Need Is Kill, Cruise is slated to star in the next installments of the Mission: Impossible and Jack Reacher franchises, and also could star in Guy Ritchie’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
Oblivion opens Friday.
