Alien invasion project based on Kambayashi novel
Story for “Yukikaze” originates with a hyper-dimensional passageway appearing over Antarctica, allowing fighters from an alien force to attempt a terrestrial invasion — resulting in a united humanity fending off the attack and going on the offensive to eliminate the enemy bases.
The project re-teams Cruise with Stoff, Lassally and Hoffs following their work on “Edge of Tomorrow,” another Warner Bros. sci-fi project based on Japanese source material. Studio changed the named from “All You Need Is Kill” and showed footage Saturday at Comic-Con with appearance by Cruise, co-star Emily Blunt and director Doug Liman.
“Edge of Tomorrow,” a co-production with Village Roadshow, opens June 6.
Jon Berg is overseeing “Yukikaze” for the studio.
