Emily Blunt says The Edge of Tomorrow 2 is being rewritten

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

The last news we brought you guys on the planned sequel to the surprisingly badass THE EDGE OF TOMORROW was when original director Dug Liman said the sequel may very well be his next film. That was cool news but today it seems like the film may have gone back to square one.

Yes, Emily Blunt aka The Full Metal Bitch herself, recently spoke with IndieWire and told them that THE EDGE OF TOMORROW 2 is getting a script rewrite. Albeit one based on an "awesome idea."

Emily Blunt:

Doug Liman has got an awesome idea and he's excited and they just need to write it. There has been a script, but now I gather there's another one in the works.

So when will the film happen? Emily Blunt says:

It’s a lot for all the stars to align for everyone to be free at the same time and available to do it at the same time. They asked me to do [it] two months before I started ‘Mary Poppins.’ Tom was like, ‘Can you go this autumn?’ and I was like, ‘No, I can’t go, I’m playing Mary Poppins for like a year, dude! I can’t do ‘Edge of Tomorrow.'

So I guess that means we'll have to wait for this script rewrite, and evidently, all the stars to align. Are you still excited for the film? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on social media!


When Earth falls under attack from invincible aliens, no military unit in the world is able to beat them. Maj. William Cage (Tom Cruise), an officer who has never seen combat, is assigned to a suicide mission. Killed within moments, Cage finds himself thrown into a time loop, in which he relives the same brutal fight — and his death — over and over again. However, Cage's fighting skills improve with each encore, bringing him and a comrade (Emily Blunt) ever closer to defeating the aliens.
