Script Is “Really Cool And Promising”
Plans have been brewing for an Edge Of Tomorrow sequel, but they haven’t quite materialised, now Emily Blunt has said a script is good to go.
Blunt feels that the Edge Of Tomorrow 2 script is “really cool and promising.” The actress starred alongside Tom Cruise in the 2014 sci-fi/action flick, and now feels it’s just a matter of timing to get everyone else on board.
Blunt is currently promoting her new movie Wild Mountain Thyme. During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter she was asked about the status of Edge of Tomorrow 2, here’s what she had to say –
“Yes, [the script] is really promising and really, really cool. I just don’t know when everything’s going to sort of align, you know what I mean? Between all of our schedules, it would just have to be the right time. But there is something in the works, for sure, that’s a great idea. A great idea.”
Directed by Doug Liman, Edge Of Tomorrow is based on the graphic novel All You Need Is Kill. The movie sees a Major in the military played by Cruise who ends up living the same day over and over again while fighting an invasive alien race. The film earned $370 million at the box office but the reported $178 million budget got in the way of its profitability.
Doug Liman previously said that he hoped to get around to Edge Of Tomorrow 2 once Cruise was done with the next two Mission: Impossible movies. At one point, the sequel was going under the title Live Die Repeat And Repeat.
There are no other details right now, but we’ll keep you posted.
