It’s a banner day for fans of “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon,” since Bill Paxton and Tom Cruise may finally star together for the first time in their thirty-year careers.  Paxton is in negotiations to join director Doug Liman’s All You Need is Kill at Warner Bros.  The sci-fi actioner based on a Japanese graphic-novel already stars Cruise as a soldier in a war against aliens who relives the day of his death over and over.  His repeated battle experience hardens his resolve and makes him a better soldier.  Paxton is in talks to play Cruise’s tough platoon leader.  Hit the jump for more on All You Need is Kill.

It’s hard to believe that Paxton and Cruise have never crossed paths on screen before, but better late than never.  Paxton recently wrapped on Baltasar Kormakur’s crime drama 2 Guns with Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg and James Marsden.  He’s also been a mainstay of the small screen, having starred in all five seasons of Big Love while recently starring in the History mini-series, Hatfields & McCoys.  Paxton will also be seen in To Appamattox, another TV mini-series that follows the lives of America’s Civil War generals.

    There’s no way to say this without seeming like a crying weebo, but All You Need is Kill is an actual novel in the book, words and paragraphs sense of things.

    Other than that an into the other fray that’s universally capitalistic in its point, but can no one not be of the nationality they are as described so directly in the book? I mean they’ve gone out of their way at this point to not cast a Japanese man in the lead role, a British actress to presumably play an american girl, and now another American to play a Brazilian Japanese immigrant. All of which have specific reasons for their nationalities in the context of the story.
