Sequel in advanced planning despite lukewarm reception to first film
Raise your hand if you're one of the hundreds of people that saw the big-budget live-action adaptation of All You Need Is Kill, Edge of Tomorrow? If you didn't manage to catch it in theaters, you probbably remember it best for the home video release, which had the title changed to Live. Die. Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow in a stroke of marketing genius to ensure success.
Speaking to Collider, director Doug Liman let slip details regarding the status of the sequel as well as additional details including the finalized title and returning cast members:
“We have an amazing story! It’s incredible! Way better than the first film, and I obviously loved the first film. It will be called Live Die Repeat and Repeat. Tom [Cruise] is excited about it, and Emily Blunt is excited about it. The big question is just when we’ll do it. But it’s not an if, it’s a when,”
As the principal actors and Liman are tied up in separate and concurrent projects, it's unlikely we'll see production commence anytime soon, but at least we know that Hollywood is still willing to mine Japanese IP, even if the movie did better outside of the US.
