Doug Liman Says He's Turned In The Script For The Edge Of Tomorrow Sequel

Doug Liman currently has a movie in theaters starring Tom Cruise but he's also working on another movie. Edge of Tomorrow was a fantastic movie starring Cruise and Emily Blunt that didn't have a great run at the box office. However, we're getting a sequel, and Liman recently revealed to Collider that he's turned the script in.

Doug Liman Says He's Turned In The Script For The Edge Of Tomorrow Sequel

"Tom and Emily [Blunt] and I are really excited to go do it. We have a script. We're 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.' This sequel originated with fans of the original film who continually came up to Tom and myself and Emily and 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."

Everyone's schedules are pretty full so it's likely the movie won't get started filming until 2019 but Liman believes that because they're making this sequel for the right reasons it won't matter.

"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."

So we're probably going to get that sequel but if we see it before 2020 we'll be surprised.
