‘Edge of Tomorrow’ was Tom Cruise sci-fi actioner that had released in 2014 and it was a cult-hit. Many fans were waiting for its sequel and director, Doug Liman has now dropped a few hints that Edge of Tomorrow 2 may be his next movie.
While speaking to Collider, the director said:
“We’re just working on the script… [We’re no longer working on scheduling issues], now it’s down to we have a window where we could go do it, and we’re frantically working on the script. It’s one of those movies that we’ll only go make if we love the script. It’s not one of those things where the studio is pushing us to make it and they don’t really care if it’s good or not. If the movie happens, it will be because Emily Blunt, Tom Cruise and myself are passionate about making it, which is a great place to be. She doesn’t need this movie, he doesn’t need this movie, and I don’t need it. We’re gonna make it if we really believe in it. We have story that the three of us love, so we’re working hard on the script… It has the possibility of being my next film.”
Liman has boasted that Edge of Tomorrow 2 will be a ‘revolutionary’ movie. Well, there are people who are skeptical about this storyline continuing past the self-contained story of the first movie. But this sequel will not be an attempt to expand Edge of Tomorrow into a franchise universe.
This framework hints at a second chapter which will reveal a time-warping threat that Major Cage (played by Tom Cruise) and Sgt. Vrataski (played by Emily Blunt) should use to their advantage.
