Joe Shrapnel, Anna Waterhouse to script EDGE OF TOMORROW sequel

Deadline brings word that the Edge of Tomorrow sequel is moving along in development as Race writers Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse have been brought on to script the film. The pair also wrote a draft of Christopher McQuarrie’s The Gray Man for Sony Pictures.

McQuarrie has confirmed on Twitter that Liman is expected to direct the sequel.

McQuarrie previously spoke about the prospect of a sequel, revealing star Tom Cruise had an idea for the film.

“Edge of Tomorrow was so hard and was so draining. When we went out to dinner when we were making Mission and Tom said, ‘I have an idea for the sequel to Edge,’ and I said, ‘I don’t want to f***ing hear it. I do not want to know!’ And he pitched the idea to me and he finished pitching it, I was like, ‘Why did you do that?’”

The Edge of Tomorrow sequel would see the return of Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, though how the film will continue the events of the first remains to be seen.

Directed by Doug Liman, Edge of Tomorrow brought in just north of $100 million at the domestic box office, and cleared $370 million worldwide. The film also starred Bill Paxton, Noah Taylor, Kick Gurry, Dragomir Mrsic, Charlotte Riley, Jonas Armstrong, Franz Drameh, Masayoshi Haneda and Tony Way. The movie was based on the acclaimed novel “All You Need is Kill” by Hiroshi Sakurazaka.
