Fans were looking forward to the sequel to 2014's 'Edge of Tomorrow', also known as 'Live Die Repeat'. But the project might not be going ahead.

An interview with Emily Blunt has cast doubt over the fate of 'Edge of Tomorrow 2' (aka 'Live Die Repeat and Repeat')

Word of a sequel had been in talks for years with original stars Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt to return alongside director Doug Liman.

Appearing on the Howard Stern Show last week, Blunt explained that 'Edge of Tomorrow 2' is "too expensive" for Warner Bros. to take on right now.

"We wanted to [make a sequel]," she told Stern. "Honestly, I think the movie is probably too expensive. Yeah, I just don’t know how we’re going to do it.

"I think that it’s hard to align everyone’s schedules. I would love it. Doug Liman would love it. Tom would love it. We’d all love to do it.

"But I think until we figure out what’s going on with the industry – honestly, I think we need to figure out what is the next road map for the kinds of films that people want to make?"

'Edge of Tomorrow' depicts a soldier (Cruise) fighting aliens who relives the same day over and over, with the day restarting every time he dies.

Emily Blunt next stars in 'A Quiet Place Part II', which hits cinemas on June 3rd.
