The 2014 sci-fi action movie Edge of Tomorrow may have been a hit with both critics and audiences, but when it subsequently arrived on home entertainment formats, it was confusingly also given the extra title Live Die Repeat. Now director Doug Liman has spoken about the sequel, and revealed it will have a similarly strange name.
In an interview with Collider, Liman stated that the film will star Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt once more, and will be called Live Die Repeat and Repeat.
“We have an amazing story! It’s incredible!” Liman enthused. “Way better than the first film, and I obviously loved the first film. It will be called Live Die Repeat and Repeat. Tom is excited about it, and Emily is excited about it. The big question is just when we’ll do it. But it’s not an if, it’s a when.”
In an earlier interview with the site last year, the director revealed some more details about the film and boldly claimed that it would “revolutionize how people make sequels.”
“I’ve had some radical ideas about how to make a sequel that would interest me,” he said. “I’ve had these intellectual ideas on how you should make a sequel that are unlike how anybody else makes a sequel, and this script and this idea fit perfectly into that idea. It’s more heresy in the film world for me to pitch things that are sort of unheard of.”
As Liman suggests, it is unclear when the movie would happen. Cruise is currently shooting Mission: Impossible 6, while Blunt is to star in Disney’s reboot of Mary Poppins. Liman is also attached to DC’s supernatural superhero team-up, Justice League Dark.
