Director Doug Liman Says He and Tom Cruise Still Talk About an EDGE OF TOMORROW Sequel, Says ‘We Love That World’

It looks like we’ll be getting a lot of updates on a sequel that may or may not ever happen. Fans of the 2014 action film The limit of tomorrow We’ve long wondered if we’d get to see a second film in the saga, and the film’s stars have always had positive things to say about the possibility.

Just a couple of weeks ago, the director Doug Liman revealed that Warner Bros. constantly asks him to do a sequel. Now Liman says he and Tom Cruise I rewatched the film recently and I still think that, ten years later, the story still has a lot to offer.

In a recent interview with Empire magazine, Liman was asked if The Limit of Tomorrow 2 he died, and he said:

“No, we still talk about it. We love that world. Tom and I just re-watched it about two months ago, because I hadn’t seen it in 10 years. I thought, ‘Wow, that’s a really good movie.'”

Liman, Cruise, and co-star Emily Blunt have all expressed their continued interest in making Edge of Tomorrow 2 in the 10 years since the original film was released.

The 2014 film is based on the novel all you need is to kill Of Hiroshi Sakurazaka and stars Cruise as a soldier who relives the same day over and over again as he tries to prevent an alien invasion from wiping out humanity.

The film was a moderate success at the box office, grossing $370 million worldwide, but continued to be a hit with action fans.

“I haven’t always been fortunate enough to have films that have had big opening weekends,” Liman told Empire.Bourne Identity lost to Scooby-Doo [on] its opening weekend. And Swingers they were coming and going from the theaters. What I realized is that I make films for the long haul.

“I’m a self-centered guy, I would love to get recognition now. But I also recognize that, if I were given the chance, I would choose to make films that people will still be watching in 50 years.”

Warner Bros. announced in 2019 that it was officially developing a The Limit of Tomorrow 2but there have been no concrete updates since. Cruise recently signed a deal with Warner Bros. to develop films, which has led many fans to wonder if that will include a sequel.

Emily Blunt has appeared on Variety podcast “Awards Circuit” last December and revealed that he continued to talk to Liman about a sequel.

“Doug and I talk about it all the time,” Blunt said. “I know Tom wants to do it, hopefully, at some point. But it’s a timing thing, but it’s also been 10 years since we did it… There was a great script in the works, but I think it would only have worked if we had shot it eight years ago. I’m not saying we’re that old, but you have to consider that it’s been 10 years.”

Do you hope this sequel gets made?
