Tom Cruise wants to reunite with Emily Blunt for an Edge of Tomorrow sequel

The story of a military officer who is brought into an alien war with the power to reset the day was a cool concept, and when you threw director Doug Liman (MR. AND MRS. SMITH), writer Christopher McQuarrie (THE USUAL SUSPECTS) and Tom Cruise into the mix, it seemed like a no-brainer. As we all know, the film didn't exactly sweep up at the box office (domestically), but it is widely considered to be one of the best popcorn films in recent memory. An unfortunate story for a film that deserved better, but the story may not be over yet.

With MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE ROGUE NATION hitting theaters this weekend, Tom Cruise has been making the press rounds and as far as future projects go, he shows no signs of slowing down. He recently spoke about doing TOP GUN 2 and if he has his way, a sequel to EDGE OF TOMORROW will be on the agenda as well.

Tom Cruise on a sequel for EDGE OF TOMORROW:

I pitched it to [Christopher] McQuarrie and Doug [Liman]. We were there one night and I was like, 'I’ve got an idea for it. It could be so much fun. Gotta get Emily.' I was like 'Emily, please.' She was like, ’give me another year, please.'

I'll concede that EDGE definitely has its issues, but Cruise knows how to assemble some great filmmakers for an entertaining ride. I'm not sure what he has in mind for a sequel, but if it pushes the envelope as far as the concept and the characters go, I'm there. Also, he's a smart man for knowing that Emily Blunt is key to a sequel. I mean, how many times have we seen THAT shot of her from EDGE? Oh, c'mon, you know the one I'm talking about...

Bring in a better production designer and we'll see what happens. I love scifi movies with armor/mecha, and while Edge of Tomorrow have an interesting story, the visuals are not too pretty to look at. I know, it sounds a bit shallow but seriously more people go and see Pacific Rim for the awesome looking robots than the 'drama' and while it was also not a very huge box office draw people tend to remember it more than that 'Tom Cruise scifi movie that nobody watched'.

No More Edge Please

The movie was better than the book, but once is enough. Time to do another original movie.

Um......no

One was enough. Just watched it again yesterday and.....bleh. Complete crap film with one-dimensional characters, huge plot holes, and a ripoff "Who shot JR" ending that completely invalidated the rest of the movie. Just let it die in peace....

Not a good idea

Love Cruise to death but a sequel wouldnt be worth it financially unless they were to significantly lower the budget but as we all know sequels end up costing more. Edge of tomorrow broke even and may have made a bit on dvds but not enough for a sequel, same goes for oblivion, now Jack Reacher made some good bank, I'm sure we'll see some sequels of that shortly.

I could see the studio greenlighting a 125-130 million budget, especially with how well its performed in the DVD and VOD markets. That's lower, sure, but not so low that it couldn't be done really well.

Possibly...but not likely for a science fiction flick with heavy sfx, and especially with the scope of the first one. It's a throw up, would have to be based on how strong it can perform in Japan and China

It didn't come close to breaking even. $379 million ($279 of it overseas) on a $180 million PB? It's $50 million short.

Does Tom Cruise want Blunt as his next Scientology concubine?

I thought EDGE OF TOMORROW was fine as a standalone; it's hard to see what they could do for a sequel. I guess the proof is in the execution.

John Krasinski may have something to say about that.

Blunt really made the movie

But do we really need a sequel? We had about 50 in the first movie itself!!

I'm down for more

At the same time though, I think it's just fine as a stand alone movie. Really no need for a sequel unless the script is great.

They should hand the keys over to Blunt to reboot the Tomb Raider franchise.
