Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise once worked together on the 2014 sci-fi film Edge of Tomorrow. With the grueling work on that film coming, John Krasinki’s wife said on the SmartLess podcast on Monday, December 12 that the Mission Impossible actor told him to stop being a P–Y, albeit in a positive way.
In an interview with Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes and Will Arnett on their podcast, Blunt revealed that she shared with Cruise her concerns about the film’s production. And what was the actor’s response? Quit being such a P-Y.
The two actors played soldiers fighting aliens in the film along with Bill Paxton and Brendan Gleeson. For their roles, they had to wear heavy robotic suits that weighed around 85 pounds, eh Entertainment Weekly reported.
It was so hard, she stressed. She wanted to cry the first time she put it on in front of the Top Gun star, who just stared at her and didn’t know how to help her.
Blunt then told him she didn’t know how she was going to get through filming and ended up sobbing. When she admitted she was already panicking, Cruise gave her a long look and said to her, ‘Come on, stop being such a P-Y, okay?’
In hindsight, the A Quiet Place star only laughed at it and successfully survived filming despite the intense training.
Meanwhile, a 2019 Edge of Tomorrow sequel has been announced, with Blunt and Cruise reprising their roles. However, it is not yet known when the film will be in the works and there are even fears that it might not even materialize.
Why? The Devil Wears Prada star herself revealed the sequel was too expensive to produce, according to Looper.
Speaking to Howard Stern last year, she said she didn’t know how to make the film after the COVID-19 pandemic has hit the world.
Hollywood is reportedly trying to cut production costs as the cost of everything soars. Blunt said the sequel is too expensive and they have yet to figure out how to make movies people want to see.
It’s also good to know that Warner Bros. has had a lot of troubles over the past few years. So there are doubts as to whether the company can still realize the sequel to Edge of Tomorrow. In fact, the company has already left several films off its to-do list, such as Batgirl.
