Despite a lukewarm performance for the first Edge of Tomorrow, a sequel is currently underway. This was made possible thanks to the positive reception and the passion of the cast and crew of Edge of Tomorrow. Emily Blunt while speaking to IndieWire confirmed that a script is in the works and production will start soonest.
Production for the sequel could have begun last year, but was stalled because Blunt was on the set of Mary Poppins Returns. By the time she was done with Mary Poppins, Cruise was busy with Mission: Impossible – Fallout.
Despite tough scheduling conflicts with stars, Doug Liman is optimistic that production wil commence this year.
Mary Poppins Returns hit theatres December 25, 2018.
