‘Edge of Tomorrow 2’ Movie Plot
The script is completed, but plot details have yet to be revealed.
Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse were initially tasked with penning the script for Edge of Tomorrow 2, but over the years a number of screenwriters have come and go.
Jez Butterworth, who co-wrote the first film, took a stab at rewriting the script for the sequel after Shrapnel and Waterhouse.
In 2019, Warner Bros. has hired new writer Matthew Robinson who was said to have impressed the studio with his ideas for the sequel.
In October director Doug Liman confirmed that the script had been completed and that both Blunt and Cruise would be reprising their roles for the sequel.
‘Edge of Tomorrow 2’ Release Date
No official release date has been confirmed for the sequel, nor is there any information regarding when filming will begin.
In May 2021, the actress of this film said that she thinks that the sequel might no longer happen, citing financial reasons and conflict in schedules.
Tom Cruise only shoots one film a year, and we expected that ‘Edge Of Tomorrow 2’ will begin filming in 2022 if he is unable to finish his current movies ( Mission Impossible 7 & 8) this year.
‘Edge of Tomorrow 2’ Trailer
It’s still very early and the film hasn’t started production yet, so there’s no trailers or video sneak peeks available.
In May 2021, while promoting her latest movie, A Quiet Place: Part II, on Howard Stern, Emily Blunt discussed her time on Edge of Tomorrow. When Howard Stern inquired about if Tom Cruise had ever asked her to do a sequel, the actress answered:
“We wanted to. Honestly, I think the movie’s too expensive. Yeah, I don’t know how we’re going to do it. I think that it’s hard to align everyone’s schedules. I would love it. Doug Liman would love it. Tom would love it. We’d all love to do it, but I think until we figure out what’s going on with the industry – honestly, I think we need to figure out what is the next road map for the kinds of films that people want to make.”
Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt’s film ‘Edge Of Tomorrow’ did pretty well at the box office, grossing an impressive $370 million on a $178 million budget. The results weren’t stellar but definitely enough to secure a sequel, which has been reportedly in the works.
