As we know the crux of the film, the Edge of Tomorrow is a science fiction set in the future where the majority of Europe is hijacked by aliens. Major William Cage, a public relations officer with no battle training is asked to accompany an operation against the aliens.
The operation proves to be a bust and Cage dies only to wake up back at Heathrow Airport turned military base. The cage can loop time and this embarks the journey of finding a way to end the alien invasion.
The film development so far
Since 2018, the news of a sequel development is roaming around.
Finally, in January 2020, an update comment came in and since then it has not been much but we are optimistic.
No one (except the team of course) really knows when any vital and firm updates will be announced but here is what we know about the developments made towards the sequel so far.
At the start of the silent chatter for the film in 2018, Liman was expected to work on the movie but he confirmed that he is too busy working on another project with Jez Butterworth at that time.
“It’s a lot for all the stars to align for everyone to be free at the same time and available to do it at the same time,” Emily Blunt said.
In September 2018, the writer Christopher McQuarrie reverted to a tweet asking about Live Die Repeat and Repeat aka Edge of Tomorrow 2, “We’re working on it. No idea how or when it will happen.”
In March 2019, Robinson and Liman started the development of the script and by October 2019 Liman confirmed completion of it.
Liman said, “Between my schedule, Tom’s schedule, and Emily’s schedule, it’s tough.
Certainly, it’s a world that I love, and like with Impulse, there’s a lot more story to be told.”
Tom Cruise might start working on this project once he is wrapped up with Mission: Impossible 7 and 8.
Edge of Tomorrow 2 Storyline
Liman said in a statement, “First of all the story is so amazing – much better than the original film, and I loved the original film – and second of all, it’s a sequel that’s a prequel.”
“If I’m going to do a sequel for the first time in my life I want to make it the opposite of what you’d expect from a sequel and we found a story that does that,” he clarified.
If you haven’t watched the movie we highly recommend doing so and if you have, well a little revision never hurt anybody.
Edge of Tomorrow 2 Cast
The movie cannot do without Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt of course but Liman has been another character he has not revealed yet but according much importance to.
This secret character might be as critical for the plot as much as the two leads.
“There’s a third character in the sequel that’s going to, for sure, steal the movie,” Liman teased.
The trailer for the movie has not been out yet but we will be more than happy if at least the shooting starts.
