Movie Review: Tully

Edge Of Tomorrow Sequel Has Hired Writers

Though it didn't look likely when the film initially hit theaters, the momentum behind a sequel to 2014's Tom Cruise-starring sci-fi Edge Of Tomorrow (or Live Die Repeat: Edge Of Tomorrow as it was awkwardly named for its home entertainment release) has been growing, partly thanks to a big haul worldwide. Now the follow-up has hired writers, with Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse aboard to work with director Doug Liman.

And lest you think this won't somehow result in another pairing of Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie (who did work on the first movie's script), rest easy – he's in talks to come aboard as a producer and develop the screenplay alongside Shrapnel and Waterhouse.

Quite what they'll come up with is anyone's guess at the moment, especially since the first film seemed to wrap up its story fairly neatly. But given the time-looping aspects, anything is possible. This could be a pre-sequel-semi-reboot-quel set in an alternate dimension where Emily Blunt (assuming she's back) is even more of a badass.

Shrapnel and Waterhouse wrote Jesse Owens biopic Race (due here on June 3) and 2010's Frankie And Alice. They have a variety of scripts in development, including Circle Of Treason, The Gray Man (which McQuarrie is attached to direct) and Diamond.

Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

Regular listeners to the Empire Podcast (sorry about the whole Call Me By Your Name theme ear worm, incidentally) will recall that we had Taron Egerton as a guest on the 300th episode, recorded in front of an audience on Valentine's Day. He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.
