Speaking to Collider, Edge of Tomorrow filmmaker Doug Liman revealed some new details on the planned sequels for the sci-fi, action-adventure movie. According to Liman, the sequel will be called Live Die Repeat and Repeat. He added that both Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise are both on board for the sequel.

Liman stated: “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.”

He also stated on his plans for the sequel: “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.”

Liman and screenwriter Chris McQuarrie have discussed a sequel for a while, but it does not yet have a production time table or release date yet. The first film made only $100 million domestic off of a $178 million budget, but it did end up making $370 million worldwide and received very good reviews.
