    Deadline is reporting that Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie are working on a sequel to Edge of Tomorrow.


    Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse have been tapped to write the sequel to Tom Cruise and Doug Liman’s sci-fi sleeper hit Edge Of Tomorrow. The original film, also starring a buffed-up Emily Blunt, was a surprise and pleasure for many genre fans with its time-bending narrative and stylish chemistry between its leads. Although a slow opener domestically, it eventually hit $100 million in the U.S. More importantly, it was a bone fide smash internationally, grossing a further $270 million or so to make the case for a sequel pretty compelling.

    Heck yeah, I thought this movie was pretty underrated. Just the right blend of action and humor with an interesting concept. Not sure where they'll take the story for a sequel though.

    Definitely one of my favorite science fiction movies of the past 5 years. I honestly can't think of a sequel story that would capture the elements of the original that made it great, unless they do it as a prequel and it's the story of Emily Blunt in the Battle of Verdun.

    Yeah, I was trying to think what they could do as a sequel .. I'm really curious what route they go. Prequel would be interesting. I don't know if you can go with that same premise again because of how unique it was the first time out.

    Echoing everyone's sentiments, really great movie but no clue where they're going with a sequel. Story felt very self contained and i don't remember the ending being very open ended.

    That loneliness is not a function of solitude.

    Nice the first one was a solid film. Tom Cruise might be a bit bats but he usually makes pretty good movies. Really enjoyed the newest Mission Impossible as well.

    Me too. I'm a huge sucker for those movies though. I've liked all of them basically.

    I am surprised how well received this movie was. I didn't think it was anything special.

    Movie was decent, but I'm sort of skeptical about a sequel. I think the original was appealing largely because it made good use of a fresh concept for an action movie. I don't know how they're going to keep it from wearing thin in a second film.

    As much as I loved the first movie, a sequel would feel off and I have doubts that it would have the charm of the first one. Cautiously excited.

    I loved the first one, but for the life of me can't understand why they'd risk ruining it with a poorly done sequel. I can't think of any appropriately logical ways to go about it.

    The first one was lots of fun, but I honestly can't remember how it ended.

    So.. yeah! Bring on the sequel.

    I really enjoyed the first one, so I'm excited for this. I liked that other sci-fi flick Cruise did around the same time as well, Oblivion. I could go for a sequel to that one too. Those were the first two Cruise films I've liked in years and years.
