Tom Cruise is set to star in Yukikaze, based on a Japanese novel series by Chohel Kamayashi. The action takes place "three decades after the alien force JAM invaded earth through a dimensional porthole that appeared over Antarctica. While humans beat back the attack, they form a special combat force to eradicate the alien threat on its home planet." Cruise seems to be working almost exclusively in the sci-fi realm at this point — he's got Oblivion and All You Need Is Kill coming out, he's been considering Our Name Is Adam, and now this.
