In a recent interview with Collider’s Steve Weintrub, Doug Liman provided some insight into the highly anticipated sequel to breakout hit Edge of Tomorrow.
Liman was disucssing his upcoming supernatural VR series titled Invisible and the EOT was inevitably discussed.
That is the only sequel that I’m considering doing, and it’s because first of all the story is so amazing—much better than the original film, and I loved and loved the original film—and second of all, it’s a sequel that’s a prequel.
A very interesting concept indeed, did our two protagonists experience some time travel previously but were completely unaware? Or maybe the events of the first film will play out again but in a completely different sequence.
Liman then went on to elaborate on his motivation for the sequel:
“I’ve had some radical ideas about how to make a sequel that would interest me, in the same way that I had ideas of how you make an independent film and then Swingers came along and it was like ‘Aha, that’s the perfect movie for me to test these ideas out on.’ I 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. So it’s gonna revolutionize how people make sequels. And again that’s why I try to do things like Invisible that are just, the revolution’s sort of built into the idea. It’s more heresy in the film world for me to pitch things that are sort of unheard of.”
So, lots of unanswered questions, I guess we’re going to have to wait for the release of the film to find out more.
