A few years back, when Tom Cruise was still regaining his mojo with mainstream audiences, Edge of Tomorrow hit theaters. The marketing wasn’t all that great, and the title was sort of vague and uninspired. The movie didn’t initially do too well, and it was only through the grace of word of mouth that it did as well as it did.
Edge of Tomorrow, which was based on the Japanese light novel All You Need is Kill (also a terrible title), ended up being a solid time-travel movie — one that impressed audiences who expected little more than an Oblivion rehash. Though despite how great it was, it wasn’t exactly the first film we’d expect a sequel from. However, over the past couple years, director Doug Liman has expressed his interest in making one, and now it sounds like the film could be coming pretty soon.
Speaking with Collider, Liman gave an update on the film, which is currently being titled Live Die Repeat and Repeat.
“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.”
So when could this movie happen? Liman has been hard at work on the YA adaptation Chaos Walking, starring Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland, and is currently in post-production on that project. Could this very well be his next project?
“It could be. It has the possibility of being my next film.”
