Bourne helmer to direct time-travel actioner All You Need Is Kill…

Doug Liman is to direct time-travel actioner All You Need Is Kill.

Based on the 2004 Japanese novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, the story centers on a new recruit in a war against aliens who finds himself caught in a time loop in which he wakes up in the past after having been killed on the battlefield. As the soldier’s death and resurrection repeat, his skills as a soldier grows as he attempts to change his fate.


Liman previously directed and produced Fair Game, starring Naomi Watts, which opens in November. Other credits include The Bourne Identity, Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Jumper.
