EXCLUSIVE: With a $61 million opening weekend overseas on Universal Pictures’ Oblivion, who could blame Tom Cruise for wanting to stay in science fiction mode? He’s just made a deal to become attached to star in Yukikaze, a big-scale film based on a series of Japanese sci-fi novels by Chohel Kamayashi. Warner Bros acquired the novel series and will finance and distribute. The author has been called Japan’s answer to Isaac Asimov, and the film will be produced by 3 Arts’ Erwin Stoff and Tom Lassally, who developed and produced the sci-fi film All You Need Is Kill that Cruise starred in for Warner Bros and director Doug Liman. Yukikaze unfolds in the early 21st Century, three decades after the alien force JAM invaded earth through a dimensional porthole that appeared over Antarctica. While humans beat back the attack, they form a special combat force to eradicate the alien threat on its home planet.
This gets added to several other projects for Cruise. He’s working with Christopher McQuarrie on another installment of Mission: Impossible, as well as a second installment of the Lee Child novel series based on Jack Reacher that’s also being done with McQuarrie for Paramount and Skydance. In addition, he’s in talks to star for director Guy Ritchie in a Warner Bros film based on the classic TV series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. He’s repped by CAA.
Universal opens Oblivion in the U.S. this Friday.

At first glance i thought it said " Tom Cruise stars in Yahtzee"
I wasnt surprised. :p
 
Cruise loves his anime.
 
Well, if the names of the characters are any indication, this will probably mark Tom Cruise's third time playing a character named Jack. :woot:
 
I wouldn't be surprised if they changed the title.

Oblivion,Jack Reacher and Legend :woot:
 
Sci fi Top Gun! :D I wonder what's with him making all these sci fi action films. I just hope we actually get to see the battle over the Antarctic, that should look amazing.
 
probably call it "Snow Wind" that what Yukikaze means in english
 
Looking at these aerial action sequences from a recent South Korean blockbuster makes me drool thinking what they will be able to do with the budget this film will likely have.

he realized what Will Smith realized in 1995. scifi movies are more cool to make and make more money.

Do you think Oblivion and All You need is Kill combined will make more than Ghost Protocol?

That translation gives me hope that we will see aerial battles across a snowy and ice laden landscape! :hyper:
 
wonder what hot young lady will tom cruise makes sure gets cast he got olga and blunt for oblivion and all we need is kill

smart man
 
I sometimes wonder if Tom Cruise and Will Smith get first look at all sci fi scripts in hollywood

It all depends on what the dialogue in the script contains.

Anything with "Ah hell no!" or "You did not just do that!" gets mailed immediately to Will.

Anything with "I'm your last option!" or "No! You're out of order!" gets sent immediately to Tom.
 
Whereas Will demands at least one low angle shot of him struggling to stand up after adversity.
 
Dan Mazeau to Draft Warner Bros. Sci-Fi Adaptation Yukikaze

First announced back in April, Warner Bros. Pictures' adaptation of Japanese author Chohei Kambayashi's alien invasion novel Yukikaze has found a writer in Dan Mazeau (Wrath of the Titans). Tom Cruise remains attached to star.

The serialized Yukikaze began being published in the pages of SF Magazine in 1979. The collected version of the tale is officially described as follows:

More than thirty years ago, a hyper-dimensional passageway suddenly appeared over the continent of Antarctica. Fighters from the mysterious alien force known as the JAM poured through the passage, the first wave an attempted terrestrial invasion. Their ferocity was unquestionable, their aim unknown. Humanity, united by a common enemy, managed to repel the invaders, chasing them back through the passageway to the strange planet nicknamed “Fairy.”

The task of finishing the battle was given to the newly formed FAF, a combat force created to go to Fairy and eliminate the JAM bases once and for all. Now, in the midst of a war with no end in sight, Second Lieutenant Rei Fukai carries out his missions in the skies over Fairy. Attached to Tactical Combat and Surveillance Unit 3 of the Special Air Force, his duty is to gather information on the enemy and bring it back to base—no matter the human cost. His only constant companion in this lonely task is his fighter plane, the sentient FFR-31 Super Sylph, call sign: Yukikaze.

The novel was previously adapted into a five-episode Japanese direct-to-video anime series.

Erwin Stoff and Tom Lassally are producing the project

This will probably go through a name change too, just like 'Edge of Tommorow'. At least WB is attempting to do IPs based on Japanese material.
