The Edge of Tomorrow sequel gets some writers



I really enjoyed Edge of Tomorrow. Based on Hiroshi Sakurazaka’s All You Need Is Kill it starred Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt in a sci-fi Groundhog Day type scenario.

The film takes place in a future where Earth is invaded by an alien race. Cruise plays Bill Cage, a public relations officer with no combat experience, who is ordered by his superior to film the first wave of a crucial landing operation against the aliens. Though Cage is killed in combat, he finds himself in a time loop that sends him back to the day preceding the battle every time he dies. Cage teams up with Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt) in seeking a way to defeat the extraterrestrials.

The film made $370,541,256 worldwide so I can see why a sequel is being made. Mind you, I am not sure what it will involve this time.

Deadline had the news that Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, Jack Reacher) was directing instead of Doug Liman, but McQuarrie has said Liman is still behind the camera for the sequel. Cruise and Blunt are also said to be returning.

Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse have been brought in to write the screenplay. They have worked on the Jesse Owens biopic Race and they did a rewrite of The Gray Man, based on the novel by Mark Greaney, at Sony.

What would you like to see in the sequel?
