Tom Cruise Set To Return For MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 5; Christopher McQuarrie To Direct?
Ethan Hunt is clearly going to accept yet another impossible mission as Tom Cruise has signed up to return as the spy in a fifth instalment of the franchise. Perhaps most interesting is the fact that Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) may direct. Read on for details!
Deadline reports that Tom Cruise has come to a deal with Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions to star in a fifth instalment of Mission Impossible. This has been confirmed by the studio, but there's currently no word on a release date or who is being brought on board to write and direct. However, the site has reportedly heard that the studio are eyeing up Christopher McQuarrie as director. He previously directed Cruise in Jack Reacher (a sequel to which is also said to be in development). Either way, it's believed that deal to put a writer and director in place will be finalised shortly. J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot will help develop the project. The Brad Bird helmed Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol went on to gross over $700 million worldwide on a $145 million budget, although there's currently no word on whether Jeremy Renner - who was at one point being lined up to replace Cruise - will return. How do you guys feel about this news?
