News: Edge of Tomorrow 2 Will Complete Franchise

Director Doug Liman is currently ramping up the sequel to Edge of Tomorrow. Currently titled Live Die Repeat and Repeat, he says that the next film will serve as a semi-prequel that may rewrite the timeline of the first movie but will still star the same leads, Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. Although the first wasn't a massive box office success, it's gained a die hard following that will definitely be interested in seeing where the next one goes. 

While explaining some of the plot devices of the movie, Liman stated that this second entry will definitely conclude the series. He's not interested in continuing this forever. When speaking with the MTV HSC Podcast, he had this to say:

“I think what people tend to do with sequels is they just make them bigger. And I’m like, ‘No, a sequel should be smaller.’ You did the first film as sort of the ad campaign for the sequel, so now you don’t need as much action, and in the case of Edge of Tomorrow, people obviously loved the comedy and they loved the situation… So we can do way more focus on Tom’s character and Emily Blunt’s character, and there’s a third character in the sequel that’s gonna for sure steal the movie. We can focus on that. I don’t need an action sequence every two minutes.”

The first Edge of Tomorrow was an excellent sci-fi action film. We can't wait to see how he spins this one.
