London: Actress Emily Blunt is in negotiations to join the cast of sci-fiction film ‘All You Need is Kill’, opposite Tom Cruise.
Produced by Erwin Stoff, Tom Lassally and Jason Hoffs, ‘All You Need is Kill’ follows the story of a soldier in a war against aliens. He is is forced to re-live his last day again and again after he is killed.
If Blunt joins the cast, she would play another soldier who fights alongside him, reports a website.
The actress has previously said she was looking for a role in a sci-fiction or superhero film where the female character has substance.
"Usually the female parts in a superhero film feel thankless. She`s the pill girlfriend while the guys are whizzing around saving the world," said Blunt.
"I didn`t do the other ones because the part wasn`t very good or the timing wasn`t right, but I`m open to any kind of genre if the part is great and fun and different and a challenge in some way," she added.
She also wants to do other films, especially "a comic-book movie or a science-fiction film."
