YUKIKAZE: Japanese Sci-Fi Saga Goes Hollywood
Tom Cruise Attached To Star...
News is out that Tom Cruise has been cast to star in Yukikaze, an adaptation from Warner Bros. based on the Japanese sci-fi novels by Chohel Kamayashi. Yukikaze has previously been adapted into five direct-to-video anime movies.
The premise sees a planetary defense force beat back an invasion of aliens using a wormhole over Antarctica, setting up bases on the aliens' planet. Yukikaze is the name of the advanced reconnaissance fighter plane the hero uses on his missions.
Seeing how slick and futuristic looking the Yukikaze appears in the anime (pictured above and below), I don't think Hollywood has much design work to do on the fighter jet. Here's hoping we get a new toy replica.
