Edge of Tomorrow 2 will be a ‘sequel prequel’

August 24th, 2017 by bash Comments

Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman said the planned sequel will be unlike any sequel filmgoers will have seen before.

Talking to Digital Spy, the man who helmed The Bourne Identity said ‘Live Die Repeat and Repeat’ described the film as a “sequel that’s a prequel“.

We have a script I love,” Liman said. “I’m kind of a contrarian, which is kind of why I liked casting Tom Cruise in a role which seems so un-Tom Cruise, and I’m really excited about the sequel because it’s not at all what you’d expect in a sequel.

If I’m going to do a sequel for the first time in my life I want to make it the opposite of what you’d expect from a sequel and we found a story that does that. That’s why I’m even more excited that it’s a sequel because it just takes all the baggage that you’d associate with a sequel and turned it on its head.”

No word on a release date as yet but both Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt will return.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
