‘Edge of Tomorrow 2’ script pending Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt and Doug Liman’s schedules

While promoting American Made with Tom Cruise, director Doug Limon reflected on a sequel to Edge of Tomorrow, sort of confirming the hold up: schedules.

“Tom and Emily [Blunt] and I are really excited to go do it. We have a script,” he confirms to Collider. “We are just trying to find a time to schedule it. Between my schedule and Emily’s and Tom’s, but it’s one of these things where it’s a sequel whose origins come from the best possible place, which is, it’s not a studio saying, ‘Hey, we think we can make some more money. Let’s just stamp out another one.’”

Liman wasn’t shy about crediting the fans for the studio moving ahead on a sequel.

“This sequel originated with fans of the original film. Who continually came up to Tom and myself and Emily and said … Told us how much they loved the movie and would we ever consider a sequel. And enough people said that to me and to Tom and to Emily that we finally sat down and said, ‘What would a sequel even look like?’ We ended up with Chris McQuarrie, coming up with a great story.”

McQuarrie is notably directing Mission Impossible 6 and Liman stays focused on Cruise.

“It really comes from the heart. And by the way, I never worked with Tom on one of these giant tent-pole movies, so I don’t … Everything I’ve ever seen him do or worked with him on comes from the heart in the most pure place. I mean, he is always thinking about his fans. He’s always thinking about the audience. He’s not one of these movie stars that thinks he’s an anointed movie star. He genuinely understands that he’s a movie star because people like his movies. And he wants to deliver for those people.”
