During a recent interview with IndieWire, the 35-year-old actress revealed that a sequel to the 2014 film was in the works -- and that Tom Cruise asked her to come back for the movie just as she was heading off to play Mary Poppins.
“It’s a lot for all the stars to align for everyone to be free at the same time and available to do it at the same time,” Blunt said. “They asked me to do [it] two months before I started Mary Poppins. Tom was like, ‘Can you go this autumn?’ and I was like, ‘No, I can’t go, I’m playing Mary Poppins for like a year, dude! I can’t do Edge of Tomorrow.'”
