Doug Liman’s THREE MUSKETEERS Put on Indefinite Hold; Might Direct ALL YOU NEED IS KILL Instead

     June 15, 2010

Director Doug Liman (Mr. and Ms. Smith) will possibly direct All You Need is Kill now that his planned adaptation of The Three Musketeers will be put on hold.  Warner Bros. planned to start production on The Three Musketeers this fall but according to Deadline it seems that the studio has decided to put the project in stasis after being beat to the finish line by Paul W.S. Anderson’s (Resident Evil) competing 3D adaptation of The Three Musketeers, which is currently in production and already set for a April 15th, 2011 release date.

Hit the jump to find out more about All You Need is Kill along with what other projects Liman might direct next.

Per Deadline, All You Need is Kill is about “a soldier pressed into battle against a superior alien species, gets killed in action, and relives his last day alive over and over. Eventually, he sees things change, he becomes a better warrior and discovers hints that might be the key to altering the outcome.”

The director has previously been in talks to direct a remake of Gambit from a screenplay by The Coen Bros.  He’s also attached to direct an untitled film about a moon mission starring Jake Gyllenhaal and a film about the Attica Uprising.  I’m sure we will know soon enough which film will be next.

In the meantime, Doug Liman’s latest film, Fair Game, which stars Sean Penn and Naomi Watts recently screened at the Cannes Film Festival to positive reviews and will be released later on this year by Summit Entertainment.
