Bourne Identity Director Doug Liman To Helm ALL YOU NEED IS KILL?
Director Doug Liman has risen to the top of Warner Bros. list of potential directors for the upcoming film “All You Need Is Kill.” If Liman joins the project it could cause an internal battle at Warner over his services with the director already attached to the studio’s adaptation of “The Three Musketeers.”
The plot for “Kill” comes from Hiroshi Sakurazaka’s graphic novel which was adapted by Dante Harper for the big screen. The story follows a new recruit to a war against aliens who finds himself waking up one day in the past after being killed on the battlefield. Liman will meet with Warner executives later this week to discuss the project and the possibility of doing back to back shoots with “Musketeers.”
Warner is involved in a race against Summit Entertainment to get competing films to theaters. Both studios are working on “Three Musketeers” projects and with Liman already attached to Warner’s project, certain parties within the studio may not want him on board with “All You Need Is Kill.”
