Rap news site This Beat Goes reports that T.I. is gearing up for a foray into the film industry, starting with the adaptation of Hiroshi Sakurazaka's Japanese science fiction novel All You Need is Kill.
“We also have a new Tom Cruise film with Doug Liman who made the Bourne Identity, Swingers. I have that as well on the horizon… aside from that, I have some other film things that I’m looking into, something with Kevin Hart that I’m looking into, something with Omar Epps that I’m looking into,” T.I. explained.
The original novel was published in North America by Viz Media under its Haikasoru label, and the rights to Kill were picked up for a large sum back in April 2010.
