Emily Blunt is all for teaming with Tom Cruise again for an Edge of Tomorrow sequel.
The 40-year-old actress admitted she would "love" to make a follow-up to the 2014 film - in which Tom Cruise played a PR executive who keeps reliving the same day over and over again as he battles against aliens - and has even had a script from director Doug Liman.
Speaking on the 'Happy Sad Confused' podcast, she told host Josh Horowitz: "There was one that Doug Liman kind of slithered over to me. I mean, I would love to make it a reality but I just don’t know when or how."
Emily joked Tom needs to step away from the 'Mission: Impossible' franchise - of which the seventh installment, 'Dead Reckoning Part 1' has just been released - to work on something different.
She quipped: "And how many 'Mission Impossibles' does he need? Come back to the side where… wasn’t he brilliant as a cowardly hero? Incredible."
Earlier during the interview, Blunt also opened up about why she doesn’t consider herself a movie star, even though she has starred in dozens of films throughout her career.
When asked about the difference between being called an actor or a movie star, the actress said, “I think most people would want to consider themselves an actor first.”
As for herself, when Horowitz asked if she thinks she could be both, Blunt quickly responded, “No, gross. I don’t.”
