Edge of Tomorrow 2 will be a prequel!

Edge of Tomorrow 2 Doug Liman

Today Collider spoke with director Doug Liman about his sequel to EDGE OF TOMORROW, which I'm gonna go ahead and call EDGE OF 2MORROW until proven otherwise. What he had to say about it was, to say the very least, exciting:

That is the only sequel that I’m considering doing, and it’s because first of all the story is so amazing—much better than the original film, and I loved and loved the original film—and second of all, it’s a sequel that’s a prequel.

A sequel that's a prequel! So... a prequel. He went on to say:

I’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 ‘Aha, that’s the perfect movie for me to test these ideas out on.’

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’s gonna revolutionize how people make sequels. And again that’s why I try to do things like Invisible that are just, the revolution’s sort of built into the idea. It’s more heresy in the film world for me to pitch things that are sort of unheard of.

I'm glad that he'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.

That script he's referring to was penned by RACE screenwriters Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapne. More on this story as it continues through pre-production!
