‘Edge of Tomorrow 2’ Title Revealed; Emily Blunt to Return
BY ADAM CHITWOOD MAY 7, 2017

Those who actually saw Edge of Tomorrow in theaters have been clamoring for a sequel since June 2014, while those who caught up with the sorely underrated sci-fi thriller on home video/cable have been eager to see a follow-up for slightly less time. Regardless, anyone who saw Edge of Tomorrow knows that stars Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, director Doug Liman, and screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie hit upon something unique and thrilling with that entertaining-as-all-get-out film, and should that creative team decide to reunite for Edge of Tomorrow 2, it would be a sight to behold. Cruise reportedly hit upon a solid idea for the sequel that has Blunt, McQuarrie, and Liman excited about a follow-up, and while the film doesn’t exactly have a timetable or a release date, we do now have a title.

Collider’s own Christina Radish recently spoke with Liman in anticipation of his upcoming film The Wall, and during their discussion she asked if he’s still looking to make Edge of Tomorrow 2. The filmmaker remains enthused about the sequel, revealing not only that Blunt is onboard but also the follow-up’s curious title:

“We have an amazing story! It’s incredible! Way better than the first film, and I obviously loved the first film. It will be called Live Die Repeat and Repeat. Tom [Cruise] is excited about it, and Emily Blunt is excited about it. The big question is just when we’ll do it. But it’s not an if, it’s a when.”

Live Die Repeat and Repeat should sound familiar to those who followed the title drama of the first film. It was originally called All You Need Is Kill, the same title as its source material. Warner Bros. switched it to Edge of Tomorrow for the film’s release, but as the home video rollout began, the title Live. Die. Repeat. was emblazoned on every Blu-ray and VOD cover. So it sounds like Liman and Co. preferred the home video title to the theatrical one, which admittedly didn’t make a whole lot of sense.

As for that story that Liman’s so excited about, he previously told us that the film is actually a sequel that’s a prequel, noting his intention to upend how people look at sequels in the first place:

“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.”

It’s exciting to hear Liman so confident that Edge of Tomorrow 2 will actually happen in these more recent comments. All involved are busy people—Cruise is currently shooting Mission: Impossible 6 with McQuarrie directing, and Blunt is filming Disney’s sequel Mary Poppins Returns. Liman, meanwhile, is attached to helm the DC Comics adaptation Justice League Dark for Warner Bros., so now it sounds like it’s going to be about aligning all of the schedules of those involved. Given that McQuarrie will be tied up on Mission: Impossible 6 post-production until next summer, it’s unclear if he won’t start writing the script until then or if he’s already been tinkering with it. So it may be a few years before Live Die Repeat and Repeat comes to pass, but it’ll surely have been worth the wait.

Right? I guess they're afraid of the average dummy not getting another title.

Maybe they think shitty titles is going to be their gimmick?

In any case, I've been a gigantic fan of this movie from day one and I think you could easily make some kind of weird sequel to this that also interweaves back into the first movie, kinda like the 1955 scenes in BTTF 2. So yeah, bring it on.

I watched this movie and it wasn't too bad. Of course, Cruise wasn't trying to shoehorn himself into a role he's completely unbelievable in.

In the sequel, he's playing the role of the aliens.

Edge of Tomorrow 2 Script Is Done, When Will We See It?

10.03.2017

Director Doug Liman, Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt are making progress on Edge of Tomorrow 2. Or, as Liman says it may be titled, Live Die Repeat and Repeat. In the most recent update provided by the director, he reveals that Christopher McQuarrie has finished the script for the sequel. So where does that leave us? Unfortunately, scheduling is going to be a bit of an issue. Here's what director Doug Liman had to say in a recent interview with Collider.

"Tom and Emily and I are really excited to go do it. We have a script. We're just trying to find a time to schedule it, between my schedule and Emily's and Tom's. But it's one of these things where it's a sequel whose origins come from the best possible place, which is, it's not a studio saying, 'Hey, we think we can make some more money. Let's just stamp out another one.' This sequel originated with fans of the original film who continually came up to Tom and myself and Emily and told us how much they loved the movie and would we ever consider a sequel. And enough people said that to me and to Tom and to Emily that we finally sat down and said, 'What would a sequel even look like?' We ended up with Chris McQuarrie coming up with a great story."

So the good news is, progress is being made. Writer Christopher McQuarrie is another frequent collaborator with Tom Cruise. He's currently filming Mission: Impossible 6 with him, so the Edge of Tomorrow sequel has two of his best behind-the-camera collaborators working on it. The problem is, everyone involved is very busy, which is going to make it tricky in terms of fitting it into their schedules. Cruise is off to make Top Gun 2 after MI6, Liman is currently filming Chaos Walking and Emily Blunt has wrapped Mary Poppins Returns, but she is very in-demand. However, as Liman tells it, this is something they really want to do and something that Cruise is passionate about.

"It really comes from the heart. And by the way, I never worked with Tom on one of these giant tent-pole movies, so I don't ... Everything I've ever seen him do or worked with him on comes from the heart in the most pure place. I mean, he is always thinking about his fans. He's always thinking about the audience. He's not one of these movie stars that thinks he's an anointed movie star. He genuinely understands that he's a movie star because people like his movies. And he wants to deliver for those people."

As of right now, given this update, it sounds like we may see the sci-fi movie sequel Edge of Tomorrow 2 start filming in 2019, based on these new comments made to Collider, but that is far from confirmed. The studio hasn't locked down a release date, so the creative team isn't rushing to meet a date right now, which is also good. Unfortunately, this means we're going to have to wait a while to see the sequel to one of the best sci-fi movies in recent memory. Fingers crossed that this one doesn't fall apart along the way somehow.
