Emily Blunt in Edge of Tomorrow

In a recent episode of the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Emily Blunt revealed her eagerness for a potential sequel to the 2014 science-action film "Edge of Tomorrow." The actress, known for her captivating performances, discussed her enthusiasm for revisiting the world of the film.

When asked about the possibility of a sequel, Blunt responded with genuine excitement, stating, “I wish there could be one. I’m so ready. I’m not the impediment I promise.”

The original movie, directed by Doug Liman and starring Blunt alongside Tom Cruise, achieved both critical acclaim and commercial success, grossing over $370 million at the box office and earning a commendable 91% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Blunt confirmed that she had been provided with a script for a sequel, but it appears that logistical challenges are currently hindering the progression of the project. The busy schedules of both Blunt and her co-star Tom Cruise have contributed to the complexity of finding suitable timing for filming.

Blunt playfully expressed her desire to have Tom Cruise on board for the sequel, jokingly encouraging him to "come back to this side." She humorously questioned, “How many Mission Impossibles does he need?” referring to Cruise's involvement in the Mission Impossible film series. Blunt also praised Cruise's performance in the original film, referring to him as the "cowardly hero."

Despite the hurdles, Blunt remains optimistic about the prospect of another installment in the series. She admitted, “I mean I would love to make it a reality but I just don’t know when or how."

Interestingly, director Doug Liman shares Blunt's enthusiasm for continuing the story. Blunt revealed that Liman's dedication to the project is evident through his eagerness to discuss the sequel, even suggesting they talk about it while flying in his private plane to Martha’s Vineyard. Although the plane discussion didn't materialize, it suggests that the creative team is actively considering ways to bring the sequel to fruition.

While Blunt's excitement is palpable, there is one aspect of the potential sequel that she's not particularly looking forward to: the exoskeleton suits. In the first film, Blunt's character wore an armored suit that weighed a staggering 85 pounds (38 kilos). Despite the physical challenges posed by these heavy suits, Blunt humorously mentioned that her back still reminds her of the experience from time to time.

Blunt's admiration for her co-star Tom Cruise shines through as she praised him for his professionalism and dedication on set. "I adored him, he was the best," she gushed, underlining the strong working relationship between the two actors.
