‘All You Need Is Kill’ to shoot at Leavesden

Cruise starrer to be based at 'Potter' studios

LONDON — Warner Bros. has confirmed that the Tom Cruise movie “All You Need Is Kill” will be the first production to shoot at the newly reopened Leavesden Studios.

Warner bought the Leavesden site, on the north-west outskirts of London, after making all eight “Harry Potter” films there using temporary soundstages and facilities.

It invested £120 million ($190 million) transforming the site into a fully-fledged permanent studio with nine stages, which opened for business in June. It also houses a Harry Potter tour that has been welcoming visitors since April.

Even before completing the redevelopment of the studio, Warner used it for reshoots of “Jack the Giant Killer” this year.

All You Need Is Kill,” which is already in pre-production, is the first feature to be entirely based there.

Director Doug Liman’s sci-fier is about a soldier who becomes stuck in a time loop on the last day of a battle to defend Earth from aliens. It’s based on a novel by Japenese writer Hiroshi Sakurazaka. Pic also stars Emily Blunt.

U.K. Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne talked up the production, which he said will create 500 jobs, at a business conference designed to use the London 2012 Olympics to promote investment in Blighty.
