Edge of Tomorrow is one of those movies where if you haven’t seen it, someone who has will list off at least a dozen reasons why you should. Fans of the scifi thriller have been clamoring for a sequel since 2014, along with star Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman.
While things are still up in the air, the movie’s definitely moving forward, with an official title and confirmed return of co-star Emily Blunt.
In an interview with Collider, Liman confirmed that the new movie will be called Live Die Repeat and Repeat, a nod to the tagline and later title that was given to the film for digital and home release, Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow.
Blunt is on board to reprise her role as Rita Vrataski, along with Cruise as star Bill Cage. Liman previously said the movie will be a sequel that’s actually a prequel, playing on the film’s use of time to subvert people’s expectations of what a sequel should be like.
“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,” Liman said.
Right now, all the major players are involved in other projects (including Liman, who’s helming DC’s Justice League Dark) so it looks like it would be at least a couple of years before this movie could get off the ground.
The hype has been real, but the sequel definitely feels like it’s going in circles sometimes, waiting for things to finally get off the ground. But if there’s anything Edge of Tomorrow fans are good at, it’s surviving time loops.
