Tom Cruise Offers Mission: Impossible 5 Update

by SuperHeroHype

October 30, 2012

Although he'll potentially be launching a brand new action franchise with the upcoming Jack Reacher, Tom Cruise today tells Total Film that another adventure of Ethan Hunt is in the works as well.

“We’re already working on different images," says Cruise of a fifth Mission: Impossible film. "Talking conceptually. I love traveling around promoting different movies because I’m always looking at different places, and I always walk around to see the city. I look at architecture, subways... coming up with different sequences.”

The most recent film, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, was released in late 2011 and grossed nearly $700 million at the worldwide box office. If the audience stays strong for another sequel, Cruise thinks that the series could go on indefinitely.

"I’ll make as many as people want to see," he says. "because they’re very challenging and so much fun to make.”

Jack Reacher, meanwhile, will hit theaters everywhere on December 21.

Christopher McQuarrie Eyed to Direct Next Mission: Impossible

by SuperHeroHype

November 14, 2012

Deadline has learned that Jack Reacher helmer Christopher McQuarrie is the choice to direct the next "Mission: Impossible" film.

"I’m told that McQuarrie is the choice to helm the fifth Mission: Impossible film that is in the early stages of being put together by Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions. They will hire writers before making it official but he’s the guy that Cruise and JJ Abrams want," says the site.

Last year's Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, directed by Brad Bird, earned an impressive $694.7 million worldwide.

Cruise previously worked with McQuarrie on Valkyrie. McQuarrie has also worked on the scripts for Cruise's All You Need is Kill and the Top Gun sequel, which is now in limbo after the death of director Tony Scott.

Are they kidding? The damage Cruise has done to both the mentally ill and gay community is incalculable. And that's not even getting into the pain Scientology has inflicted on thousands of innocent victims. Tom Cruise is a monster.

Christopher McQuarrie Chooses to Accept Mission: Impossible 5

by SuperHeroHype

August 05, 2013

Said to be in the running for the job for some time, The Way of the Gun and Jack Reacher writer-director Christopher McQuarrie is set to helm the upcoming Mission: Impossible 5.

"Mission: Accepted," he posted to his Twitter feed moments ago.

Following a worldwide gross of $694.7 million for the franchise's most recent entry, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions recently signed leading man Tom Cruise to reprise the role of Ethan Hunt and to produce.

McQuarrie, who is likely to both write and direct the new film, also previously supplied the screenplay to Bryan Singer's Valkyrie, in which Cruise starred. He's also among the screenwriters on the upcoming Cruise sci-fi thriller Edge of Tomorrow.

UPDATE: Paramount Pictures has officially issued the following press release to confirm the news:

Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions announced today that Christopher McQuarrie will direct the next “MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE” film.

McQuarrie will direct from a screenplay by Drew Pearce, with Tom Cruise reprising the iconic role of Ethan Hunt, who was first introduced to moviegoers in 1996. The project will be produced by Cruise through Tom Cruise Productions, Paramount and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot, who served as producers on previous films in the hit series. Skydance Productions, who served as co-financers and executive producers of the last installment, will work closely with the team in the development and production process.

“I am thrilled to reunite with Chris for the latest installment in the Mission series," said Cruise. “I began producing the films with the goal that a different director with his own vision would make each one. Chris is an extraordinary filmmaker who will deliver the heart-pounding action and thrills that audiences around the world have come to expect from the Mission: Impossible franchise.”

Added Adam Goodman, President of Paramount Film Group: “The Mission series is special for its signature directors; Chris McQuarrie keeps this tradition thriving.”

McQuarrie recently wrote and directed “JACK REACHER” for Paramount and Skydance, with Cruise in the title role, based on the novels by New York Times bestselling author Lee Child. His screenwriting credits include the upcoming “EDGE OF TOMORROW” and 2008’s “VALKYRIE,” both starring Cruise, as well as “THE USUAL SUSPECTS,” for which he earned an Academy Award® for best screenplay in 1995.

“MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - GHOST PROTOCOL,” the 4th installment in the globally successful franchise, earned nearly $700M around the world and became Cruise’s highest grossing film to date in his storied career.

The “MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE” franchise has earned more than $2B at the worldwide box office, making it one of the most successful franchises in movie history.

Jeremy Renner Confirms He’s Returning for Mission: Impossible 5

SuperHeroHype

Jun 06, 2014

Jeremy Renner has confirmed to Yahoo! TV that he will again play William Brandt in Mission: Impossible 5. He joins the previously-confirmed Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg in the December 25, 2015 release.

Asked whether he could possibly have a role in the second season of "True Detective," Renner responded: "It's kind of unlikely. In fact, I'm kind of strapped time-wise doing Avengers 2, and Mission: Impossible 5 is rearing its head, and then they want to do another Bourne movie. It's unlikely I can find the time right now. And that's all right. It's just really high-class problems — pretty awesome to have. Even if I really wanted to do it, which I don't, I couldn't."

The trio starred together in the Brad Bird-directed Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, which opened in December of 2011 and earned an impressive $694.7 million worldwide on a budget of $145 million. We would assume that Paula Patton will also be back as Jane Carter, but that hasn't been confirmed yet.

Mission: Impossible 5 will be directed by Christopher McQuarrie, who wrote Edge of Tomorrow, now playing in theaters, and directed Tom Cruise in Jack Reacher.

When will the world ever understand that Tom Cruise is not a believable action star in any shape or form..

His best "action" roles were where he sat in a seat the whole performance-- Days of Thunder and Top Gun.. Hes fine in things like Risky Business, Cocktail, Jerry Maguire or even a Few Good Men, or lampooning himself in Tropic Thunder-- but not where he actually has to fight or shoot anyone..

Probably the day Cruise does. And considering his non-existent level of self-awareness, that probably means never. We are stuck with these crappy movies for as long as Cruise wants to do them.

Mission: Impossible 5 Targets Alec Baldwin as CIA Head

SuperHeroHype

Jul 09, 2014

Alec Baldwin has two potential major big screen roles on his plate as Deadline reports that he’s in talks to star in both Christopher McQuarrie’s Mission: Impossible V as well as Peter Landesman’s untitled film about NFL concussions, already slated for Will Smith to headline.

Mission: Impossible V, which features a script by Will Staples and Drew Pearce, would cast Baldwin as the head of the CIA. Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg are all set to reprise their respective roles.

Landesman’s film, meanwhile, based on Jeanne Marie Laskas’ 2009 GQ article “Game Brain” (you can read it in its entirety right here), the film will provide a narrative that explores the long-term effects of concussions among professional football players.

The outlet also notes that Baldwin is looking to headline an hour long cable series about a “Rob Ford type” mayor and the trouble he gets into.
