Emily Blunt says Edge of Tomorrow 2 might be too expensive to make. Blunt starred alongside Tom Cruise in the original 2014 film based on the manga All You Need Is Kill. In the film, Cruise plays Major William Cage, a soldier sent to fight against alien creatures (called "Mimics") in the hopes of stopping the slaughter of the human race. Along the way, Cage discovers that every time he dies, he must relive the same day over and over again, convincing Blunt's superstar soldier Rita Vrataski to help in the process.

Edge of Tomorrow 2's script is reportedly finished and Blunt has remained vocal about her desire to make the film. Similarly, director Doug Liman has said that the film getting made depends entirely on the stars at its center and whether or not they are available. Both Blunt and Cruise have remained rather busy in the years since Edge of Tomorrow's release and it seems no movement has happened on the film for quite some time.

Now, Blunt has said that she's not sure if Edge of Tomorrow 2 will ever get made. Speaking on The Howard Stern Show, the actress said that she's not sure how they could pull off making the film. One of the reasons, she says, is that because it could be too expensive to make.

Honestly, I think the movie is too expensive. I just don’t know how we’re going to do it.

While Edge of Tomorrow has garnered quite the following since it was released in theaters, it's easy to forget that the blockbuster wasn't a big hit right out of the gate. The film went on to gross $370 million worldwide against a $178 million production budget. Both stars' salaries would be a huge addition to the sequel's budget and their schedules could also be hard to navigate, especially Cruise's - the actor is about embark on a global press tour for Top Gun: Maverick, leading to the delay of that film and production on Mission: Impossible 8.

Still, despite all of this, Edge of Tomorrow 2 is an enticing prospect and one that seems ready to go if the stars can align. A budget may not necessarily be a huge concern either - Liman has said that Edge of Tomorrow 2 would be smaller and more character driven than the first. Smart sci-fi is hard to come by and the Groundhog Day meets alien invasion plot of the first film made for an exciting adventure. Edge of Tomorrow 2 could add to that premise in interesting ways, but as Blunt seems to hint, it may never get made.
