'Entourage' star Jeremy Piven is the late entrant to the world of Doug Liman's 'Edge of Tomorrow'. Piven has joined the cast of the new sci-fi based on the novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka from an adapted script penned by Dante Harper, Christopher McQuarrie, and Joby Harold. The project itself has actually already wrapped but Piven, on a UK-based break, has been signed up for some additional scenes and will be playing the role of Col. Walter Marx. Thankfully these additional scenes aren't a last minute panic to fill some gaps but were always part of the plan to go back and shoot these extra sequences. 'Edge of the Tomorrow' stars Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt ('Looper'), Bill Paxton ('Aliens'), Charlotte Riley, Jonas Armstrong, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Tony Way, Kick Gurry, Franz Drameh and Dragomir Mrsic.
"The story unfolds in a near future in which a hive-like alien race, called Mimics, have hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, shredding great cities to rubble and leaving millions of human casualties in their wake. No army in the world can match the speed, brutality or seeming prescience of the weaponized Mimic fighters or their telepathic commanders. But now the world’s armies have joined forces for a last stand offensive against the alien horde, with no second chances. Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously demoted and then dropped--untrained and ill-equipped--into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission. Cage is killed within minutes, managing to take an Alpha down with him. But, impossibly, he awakens back at the beginning of the same hellish day, and is forced to fight and die again... and again. Direct physical contact with the alien has thrown him into a time loop-- dooming him to live out the same brutal combat over and over."
'Edge of Tomorrow' opens in theatres on 6 June 2014.
