Tom Cruise Teases Edge Of Tomorrow Sequel

Big of budget but disappointing of box office, **Edge Of Tomorrow **seems an unlikely candidate for a sequel, even in these franchise-happy times. Tom Cruise, however, is still chewing over ways and means of making it happen. Talking to MTV News at the premiere of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, he hinted that the property may yet live again.

“I pitched it to [Christopher] McQuarrie and Doug [Liman]," he revealed of his idea for a sequel. "We were there one night and I was like, 'I’ve got an idea for it'."

McQuarrie, of course, is Cruise's screenwriter of choice and the man who adapted the Manga property All You Need Is Kill into a pulsing, pacy sci-fi actioner in which Cruise and Emily Blunt tooled up to tackle a species of grabastic extra-terrestrial killing machines. Liman directed the movie and is reconnecting with his star for crime biopic **Mena.

Should it come to pass, Cruise is keen to see his co-star return. “It could be so much fun. Gotta get Emily," he said. "I was like 'Emily, please'. She was like, ’Give me another year, please'."

Maybe not so far-fetched, then. The next question is what the heck to call it...
