Edge Of Tomorrow 2 (Cruise / Blunt)

Post by WyldeMan on 4/9/2016, 5:09 pm

Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse have been tapped to write the sequel to Tom Cruise and Doug Liman’s sci-fi sleeper hit Edge Of Tomorrow. The original film, also starring a buffed-up Emily Blunt, was a surprise and pleasure for many genre fans with its time-bending narrative and stylish chemistry between its leads. Although a slow opener domestically, it eventually hit $100 million in the U.S. More importantly, it was a bone fide smash internationally, grossing a further $270 million or so to make the case for a sequel pretty compelling.

The original seemed to square up any loose ends pretty efficiently, though, so Shrapnel and Waterhouse will have to be inventive to find a way to get Blunt back in the mix with Cruise. Liman is attached to direct with Erwin Stoff and Tom Lassally producing. Christopher McQuarrie, who wrote the first film, is in talks to board as a producer and is developing the script with the writers.

Shrapnel and Whitehouse are much in-demand. After getting their first proper feature produced this year with the Jesse Owens biopic Race,  the pair were brought on to do a rewrite of The Gray Man, based on the novel by Mark Greaney, at Sony. McQuarrie is also set to direct this one with Charlize Theron attached to star. Theron’s Denver and Delilah label is also aboard as producers alongside Joe Roth.

The duo also adapted Circle Of Treason, based on a book by CIA agents Sandy Grimes and Jeanne Vertefeuille about their pursuit of fellow CIA agent and traitor Aldrich Ames.

I watched the first again a few weeks back and it didn't hold a lot of re-watch value. Don't think I made it all the way through actually, which is odd because I really enjoyed it the first time.

Not sure how a sequel would play out, but it'll probably make money.

Same here. On my second, I only watched 2/3 of it. Still entertaining though.

I can only assume he still has the ability otherwise they wouldn't make another one. The war must not be over.

I've seen it 3 or 4 times cause it aired on Starz a lot but unlike you guys I feel it held up and I was always finding something new so if the Full Metal Bitch is back, so am I.
