Doug Liman Director of Edge of Tomorrow Starring Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt
In an exclusive interview with Hollywood director Doug Liman, Creative Mapping finds out the director’s take on his upcoming science fiction action film, ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ starring Oscar nominated actor Tom Cruise (the Mission Impossible films, Risky Business, Oblivion, Minority Report) Emily Blunt ( The Devil Wears Prada, The Adjustment Bureau ) and Bill Paxton ( Aliens, HBO’s Big Love ). The film takes place in the future when aliens invade Earth in a devastating attack set to destroy mankind. Tom Cruise’s character, Lt. Col. Bill Cage is thrown into a suicide mission after which he awakes to relive the same fight and death sequence over and over, during which he must gain the skills with the help of Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski ( Emily Blunt) to take on the aliens.
Doug Liman talks about Tom Cruise in this wholly original role, reinventing Hollywood actors, and how Edge of Tomorrowbreaks the mould of typical studio films.
