Emily Blunt says there's a 'real conversation' for her fan favorite movie to get a sequel

It could finally be happening...

Our prayers might have finally been answered.

A decade on from its release, we may be getting a sequel to Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise's fan favorite movie, Edge of Tomorrow.

Blunt has long said she's 'so ready' for it to happen, and a script was even put together at one point - but the film itself is yet to actually come into fruition.

Previously speaking on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Blunt spoke of the difficulties of pinning down her co-star and Mission Impossible actor Cruise.

“How many Mission Impossibles does he need?" she quipped.

Blunt continued: "I mean I would love to make it a reality but I just don’t know when or how.

"[...] I'm so ready. I'm not the impediment, I promise."

Now, again chatting to Josh Horowitz on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Blunt has given an update.

"We all loved making [Edge of Tomorrow] so much," she gushed. "It was such a kinetic, exciting experience working with Doug Liman, who's so off his rocker in the best way and such a brilliant filmmaker."

Noting that they'd discussed a sequel in the past, Blunt went on: "I think that's a more real conversation."

Horowitz added: "There was a script, but that was a long time ago. It sounds like that was going to pick up immediately and now it's been, like, a decade."

The Devil Wears Prada star then shared that the time the talks first took place about the sequel was shortly before her 2018 film, Mary Poppins.

"I think if we're going to do one, we're going to have to reimagine what the sequel would look like," Blunt continued.

Horowitz also noted Cruise's new deal with Warner Bros. - the studio behind the first Edge of Tomorrow.

Warner Bros. announced the new partnership last month and said that it was 'thrilled' to be working with the Top Gun star.

CEOs Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy said in a joint statement: "We are thrilled to be working with Tom, an absolute legend in the film industry.

"Our vision, from day one, has been to rebuild this iconic studio to the heights of its glory days, and, in fact, when we first sat down with David Zaslav to talk about joining the Warner Bros. Discovery team, he said to us, ‘We are on a mission to bring Warner Bros. back - we have the best resources, storytelling IP, and talent in the business - and we need to bring Tom Cruise back to Warner Bros!’

"Today, that becomes a reality and we are one step closer to achieving our ambition. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Tom back to Warner Bros. and look forward to bringing more of his genius to life on screen in the years ahead."

Watch this space, folks.
