‘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.

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
