Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman has released some new information while talking to Collider he said how Edge of Tomorrow 2 is going to be a sequel but also a prequel to the 2014 original. Edge of Tomorrow 2 would see the return of Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt.
“That is the only sequel that I’m considering doing,” Liman said. “It’s because first of all the story is so amazing—much better than the original film, and I loved and loved the original film—and second of all, it’s a sequel that’s a prequel.”
He also teased his new concept to IGN, boldly stating that, “It’s going to revolutionize how people make sequels. It really will.”
“Edge of Tomorrow was so hard and was so draining. When we went out to dinner when we were making Mission and Tom said, ‘I have an idea for the sequel to Edge,’ and I said, ‘I don’t want to f***ing hear it. I do not want to know!’ And he pitched the idea to me and he finished pitching it, I was like, ‘Why did you do that?’”
