According to Variety Emily is set to star as another soldier next to Tom Cruise’s character in the Doug Liman film adaptation of the Japanese novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka.
Celeb Gossip – The action packed sci-fi film is described as a “groundhog day” type setting where a solider (Cruise) fighting in a war with aliens finds himself caught in a time loop of his last day after being killed. Throughout his training and experiences being relived each day, he becomes a better and more skilled soldier along the way.
The film which is set to hit theaters in 2013, is just one of the movies Miss Blunt seems to be taking over the box office with lately. Her comedic flick, “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen,” just hit theaters and her other newest comedy, “The Five Year Engagement,” is set to open at the Tribeca Film Festival this week.
