Edge Of Tomorrow Sequel

A sequel to 2014's Edge of Tomorrow is in development at Warner Bros., EW has confirmed.

And Liman, of course, did a superb job directing the chaotic action in the film, as well as the very charismatic lead performances from Blunt as the soldier who takes Cruise's character under her wing and trains him to be a hero.

Edge of Tomorrow filmmaker Doug Liman, Cruise and Blunt are expected to return, dependent on Robinson delivering a script they like.

According to Deadline, writer Matthew Robinson (Monster Trucks, The Invention of Lying) has been hired to work on the script after successfully pitching a story idea to the studio. Producers on the sequel include Erwin Stoff, Tom Lassally, and Masi Oka, with Hisashi Sasaki executive producing. Both of them have previously teased a sequel called Live Die Repeat and Repeat for some time in the past.

Nightmare fuel: Researchers record giant tarantula eating an opossum
The Amazon rainforest is home to many terrifying creatures, not the least of which are huge tarantulas the size of dinner plates. The team observed both dotted humming frogs and juvenile tarantulas leaving the same burrow for a night of foraging.

When a public affairs officer (Tom Cruise) finds himself accidentally getting a blood transfusion from one of the aliens, he gains their ability and does what he can to try and stop a trap before it can start. It all made for one hell of a fun film, and also helped audiences realize that Emily Blunt should be in all the movies, all the time.

Liman's Edge of Tomorrow brought in just north of $100 million at the domestic box office, and cleared $370 million worldwide.

After little-to-no-word for the past two years, the Edge of Tomorrow sequel is officially back on track. He'll have some big shoes to fill considering that the original film was written by Oscar-winner Christopher McQuarrie alongside brothers Jez and John-Henry Butterworth as an adaptation of Hiroshi Sakurazaka's sci-fi light novel "All You Need Is Kill".
