Warner Bros is moving ahead on sci-fi actioner “Yukikaze,” bringing on “Wrath of the Titans” scribe Dan Mazeau to adapt.
Studio acquired rights to the Japanese novel by Chohei Kambayashi earlier this year and attached Tom to star. Producers are 3 Arts’ Erwin Stoff and Tom Lassally and Viz Media’s Jason Hoffs.
Story for “Yukikaze” originates with a hyper-dimensional passageway appearing over Antarctica, allowing fighters from an alien force to attempt a terrestrial invasion — resulting in a united humanity fending off the attack and going on the offensive to eliminate the enemy bases.
The project re-teams Tom with Stoff, Lassally and Hoffs following their work on “Edge of Tomorrow,” another Warner Bros. sci-fi project based on Japanese source material. Studio changed the named from “All You Need Is Kill” and showed footage Saturday at Comic-Con with appearance by Tom, co-star Emily Blunt and director Doug Liman.
“Edge of Tomorrow,” a co-production with Village Roadshow, opens June 6.
Jon Berg is overseeing “Yukikaze” for the studio.
Mazeau is represented by CAA and Circle of Confusion. His attorney is Katz Golden Rosenman.
