Remember that time you bought the DVD or Blu-ray copy of Doug Liman’s Edge Of Tomorrow only to find that the cover art contained the words ‘Live. Die. Repeat.’ as those that were the most predominant rather than the film’ actual title? Well get ready to channel that anger and outrage once more as a sequel has been confirmed and it’s title? Live Die Repeat And Repeat…
That is the official word from none other than Liman, who chatted to Collider recently.
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.
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 all sounds rather promising (other than that questionable title), as Edge Of Tomorrow was certainly among one of the most underestimated blockbusters of 2014, presenting two strong core characters and mightily impressive visuals and action.
For now this one looks like it could be a while away, especially with both Cruise and Blunt seemingly working their butts off of late, but keep your eyes peeled to Filmoria for more news when we have it.
