Warner Bros. is moving forward with the sequel to Edge Of Tomorrow. The studio wants both Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt to return.
Edge of Tomorrow starred Cruise as Major William Cage, a public relations officer with no training who is thrown on the frontlines of a war against aliens. He soon finds himself caught in a loop and being resurrected each time he’s killed. By Cage’s side is the badass Sgt. Rita Vrataski (Blunt), nicknamed the Angel of Verdun.
Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse were originally hired to write a script for a sequel, which Liman sounded very excited about in 2016. “The story is so amazing — much better than the original film, and I loved and loved the original film — and second of all, it’s a sequel that’s a prequel,” said Liman. “I had these intellectual ideas on how you should make a sequel that [is] unlike how anybody else makes a sequel, and this script and this idea fit perfectly into that idea. So it’s gonna revolutionize how people make sequels.”
There is currently no release date set for the film.
