‘Edge of Tomorrow 2’ could be next for Doug Liman

The long rumored Edge of Tomorrow sequel, possibly subtitled Live Die Repeat and Repeat, will likely be headed to production soon, with some schedules of the key players worked out.

Collider’s Christina Radish spoke with director Doug Liman at the TCA’s, where the filmmaker was promoting his upcoming YouTube series Impulse, and Liman revealed that scheduling issues for Edge of Tomorrow 2 have already been worked out—right now it’s all about the script.

“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.”

Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt are the two principle actors from the first film and Cruise is wrapping up some re-shoots for the sixth Mission Impossible film. Blunt will star in Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns, due out at Christmas.

When pressed if EoT2 would be his next film, Liman said: “It could be. It has the possibility of being my next film.”

Collider noted that “Liman just entered post-production on the sci-fi YA adaptation Chaos Walking, starring Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland, and while he doesn’t confirm when the window to shoot Edge of Tomorrow 2 would be, it seems feasible it could be in front of cameras at the end of this year or sometime in the first or second quarter of 2019.”
