The last news on Doug Liman‘s We Mortals Are (then known as All You Need Is Kill) reported that Tom Cruise had been cast in the lead role — a development that, in any scenario, would be taken as a big deal and a good sign. Problem is, that was close to four months ago, and silence in that interim can’t be taken with too much positivity. Now, though, CBM (via Movies.com) have found a video, in which rapper and occasional actor T.I. revealed that he has this project “on the horizon.”
Dante Harper and Jody Harold wrote the screenplay — an adaptation of Hiroshi Sakurazaka‘s manga — which follows “a soldier in a war against aliens who finds himself reliving his last day over and over after being killed,” only gaining more strength and skill with each subsequent return. If T.I. isn’t mistaken, and if We Mortals Are is still taking off, shooting will begin at the end of this year. With that, a late 2013 release could be in the cards.
(The rapper also said that a Marvel comics franchise is “requesting my availability,” but I’ll be damned if I have any idea what he’s talking about.)
When it comes to projects that have a whole lot more forward momentum, Variety informs us that Jorge Garcia is one of many to join Get a Job in the past week. Everyone’s favorite Lost actor has signed a deal only a few days after John Cho and Marcia Gay Harden came on board the Dylan Kidd-directed comedy; that’s what I meant by “forward momentum.” Details on his character aren’t available as of this writing, unfortunately, but it’s Hurley! The guy’s always a welcome face.
Would you want to see T.I. join Cruise onscreen? Are you happy about Garcia getting a post-Island job?
