Joby Harold rewriting WB’s ‘Kill’

'Army of the Dead' scribe to rewrite time-travel actioner

Warner Bros. has tapped Joby Harold (“Army of the Dead”) to rewrite time-travel actioner “All You Need Is Kill,” with Doug Liman attached to direct and 3 Arts Entertainment producing.

The studio has been developing “Kill,” based on the 2004 Japanese novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, since April 2010 when it bought Dante Harper’s adaptation. Producers are Erwin Stoff, Tom Lassally and Jason Hoffs with Hidemi Fukuhara exec producing.

Warners brought Liman on board in August, but he may first direct Paramount’s “Luna,” which follows renegade scientists stealing an energy source from the moon.

Set during a war against aliens, “Kill” centers on a recruit caught in a time loop who wakes up in the past after having been killed on the battlefield. No actors have been attached.

Harold most recently wrote the story for Sony’s “Mommy and Me,” starring Meryl Streep and Tina Fey with Stanley Tucci directing. He’s also writing an original screenplay for Andrew Adamson called “Fountain City.” He’s exec producing both projects.

Harold previously wrote “Ronin” for Warners and “Simon Bloom” for Universal along with directing “Awake” for TWC from his own script.

He’s repped by CAA and Bloom Hergott Diemer Rosenthal LaViolette Feldman Schenkman & Goodman.
