Variety reports that the actress has nabbed the co-starring role in the upcoming sci-fi flick, "All You Need Is Kill," alongside Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. Not bad...not bad at all. Set to be directed by Doug Liman, this long-brewing project is an adaptation of the Hiroshi Sakurazaka novel that follows a soldier in an alien war who finds himself living his last day in battle over and over again after being caught in a time loop, becoming a better soldier along the way. And she won't just be attractive wallpaper either, as she'll team with Blunt to play soldiers who fight alongside Cruise.
It's certainly a nice bump for Riley who at one time was considered for Catwoman in "The Dark Knight Rises." And while obviously that went to Anne Hathaway, this is a pretty good gig all its own and a nice way to make a footprint in Hollywood. Production will get underway this fall, but get a sneak peek of Riley's work below, as she shares a smoldering scene with Hardy in "Wuthering Heights."
