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.
