Emily Blunt has been getting candid about her potential film roles as she prepares for this summer’s A Quiet Place 2 and Disney’s Jungle Cruise, and this time, she has a less-than-optimistic update on Edge of Tomorrow 2. While the first time-bending alien invasion film starring Blunt and Tom Cruise was a box office success when it was released in 2014, having a sequel off the ground has been difficult.
Blunt disclosed in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly that the new iteration of the Edge of Tomorrow 2 script looks fantastic, but she has reservations about the studio approving it:
“That was an amazing script, but I just don’t know what the future holds for it. I did read a script that was in really great shape, but it’s just a matter of if that can even happen now,” she says. “I don’t have the straight answer on that one.”
Edge of Tomorrow 2 appears to be the second latest fun-sounding Blunt-related project to be canceled. She seemed to put an end to speculation that Blunt and her partner, John Krasinski, will play the heads of the Fantastic Four family when the iconic superhero team formally joins the MCU earlier this week. During an interview with Howard Stern, Blunt said that the Sue Storm rumors are nothing more than “fan-casting,” and that she is no longer involved in comic book movies.
“I don’t know if superhero movies are for me,” Blunt said. “They’re not up my alley. I don’t like them. I really don’t.”
