Although little is known about the upcoming sequel, which is slated for release next May, director Christoher McQuarrie teased there would be some explosive underwater moments ahead.

Speaking to Collider after the release of Dead Reckoning – Part One – he promised that things would be taken to the next level.

‘Tom and I are constantly re-evaluating our own work and asking ourselves how we could have done it better,’ the filmmaker said.

‘We’ve done underwater in Edge of Tomorrow, and we worked underwater in Rogue Nation, and we left very dissatisfied with those sequences.

‘And we analyze why we were dissatisfied. What were all the factors working against us? The biggest being, not having real knowledge in that area.

‘Everything you’re looking at in ‘Dead Reckoning’ is the application of knowledge from previous sequences.’
