<div align="center"><img alt="Edge of Tomorrow 2 Doug Liman" src="/images_arrownews/2eot-fb.jpg" title="" /></div> <p>Today <a href="" target="_blank">Collider</a> spoke with director Doug Liman about his sequel to <a href="">EDGE OF TOMORROW</a>, which I&#39;m gonna go ahead and call <a href=""><span style="color:#FF0000;">EDGE OF 2MORROW</span></a> until proven otherwise. What he had to say about it was, to say the very least, exciting:</p> <blockquote> <p>That is the only sequel that I&rsquo;m considering doing, and it&rsquo;s because first of all the story is so amazing&mdash;much better than the original film, and I loved and loved the original film&mdash;and second of all, it&rsquo;s a sequel that&rsquo;s a prequel.</p> </blockquote> <p>A sequel that&#39;s a prequel! So... a prequel. He went on to say:</p> <blockquote> <p>I&rsquo;ve had some radical ideas about how to make a sequel that would interest me, in the same way that I had ideas of how you make an independent film and then Swingers came along and it was like &lsquo;Aha, that&rsquo;s the perfect movie for me to test these ideas out on.&rsquo;</p> <p>I had these intellectual ideas on how you should make a sequel that are unlike how anybody else makes a sequel, and this script and this idea fit perfectly into that idea. So it&rsquo;s gonna revolutionize how people make sequels. And again that&rsquo;s why I try to do things like Invisible that are just, the revolution&rsquo;s sort of built into the idea. It&rsquo;s more heresy in the film world for me to pitch things that are sort of unheard of.</p> </blockquote> <p>I&#39;m glad that he&#39;s still being allowed to push the envelope with a high concept even after the original film took a beating at the box office. This can only be good news for fans of the original.</p> <p>That script he&#39;s referring to was penned by RACE screenwriters&nbsp;Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapne. More on this story as it continues through pre-production!</p> <div align="center"><img alt="" src="/images_arrownews/2eot-pic.jpeg" title="" /></div>
