Charlotte Riley joins cast of Tom Cruise's latest film

Friday August 24, 2012

Charlotte Riley has signed up to star alongside Tom Cruise in his latest venture All You Need Is Kill.

The 30-year-old will join fellow British actress Emily Blunt in the film that sees the two star as soldiers, fighting a war against aliens alongside Tom, also a soldier, who relives his last day over and over after dying.

The film, directed by Doug Liman, is Charlotte's first major Hollywood role and is based on the sci-fi graphic novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka.

Durham-born Charlotte is engaged to Tom Hardy, star of The Dark Knight Rises.

The couple met when they were both cast in TV miniseries The Take and went on to work together on Wuthering Heights.

Charlotte will next appear in the thriller Entity, co-starring Dervla Kirwan and Branko Tomovic whilst All You Need Is Kill is set to start production later this autumn in London.
