If you loved last summer’s “Edge of Tomorrow” — the action thriller starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt as a couple of badasses fighting an impossible war, Cruise with the added benefit of unlimited lives and the drawback of Blunt yelling at him all the time about him being bad at fighting — we’ve got some great news for you.
Cruise himself appears to be pushing for a sequel. At the New York premiere for “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” he told MTV News that he had an idea for a sequel to last summer’s sleeper hit.
“I pitched it to [“Rogue Nation” director and “Edge of Tomorrow” screenwriter Christopher] McQuarrie and [“Edge of Tomorrow” director] Doug [Liman]. We were there one night and I was like, I’ve got an idea for it,” he said.
The manga that the movie is based on, “All You Need Is Kill,” is reportedly also getting a written sequel.
Cruise wouldn’t divulge what his idea was, but he was definitely amped about it.
“It could be so much fun,” he said. “Gotta get Emily. I was like Emily, please. She was like, ’give me another year, please.'”
