‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Sequel in the Works, Doug Liman Directing

2014’s Edge of Tomorrow was critically beloved, but not exactly a runaway commercial success domestically. The film did exceptionally well internationally though, so while it’s surprising, it’s not exactly completely out of left field that a sequel is now in the works.

Doug Liman is returning to direct, and the script is currently being written by Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse. Erwin Stoff and Tom Lassally are currently producing, and stars Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt are expected to return.

The first film was rather self contained, so Shrapnel and Waterhouse will have quite the challenge in front of them creating a narrative that doesn’t feel forced. But if it’s done right, this could be a pretty entertaining film.

Hopefully that’s what we get.
