Tom Cruise wants to make an 'Edge of Tomorrow' sequel.
The 53-year-old actor - who played Major William Cage in the action-adventure film - has revealed he's already pitched an idea for a follow-up to the writer and director.
He said: "I pitched it to [Christopher] McQuarrie and Doug [Liman]. We were there one night and I was like, 'I've got an idea for it'."
The 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' star admitted, however, that the sequel will only go ahead if his co-star Emily Blunt agrees to return as Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski.
He told MTV News: "It could be so much fun. [We] gotta get Emily. I was like, 'Emily, please', [and] she was like, 'Give me another year, please'."
Cruise's comments come after he confirmed yet another 'Mission: Impossible' sequel is in the works.
He said: "We're starting to work on it now. We'll probably start shooting it next summer."
The Hollywood star also confessed recently that he would love to reprise his role as Maverick in a 'Top Gun' follow-up.
He revealed: "It would be fun. I would like to get back into those jets.
"It would have to be practical. I don't want any CGI jets. I want to shoot it like how we shot the first one."
