Paramount Eyes Spring 2017 Start Date For The Next MISSION IMPOSSIBLE Film
.Writer and director Christopher McQuarrie's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation soared to nearly $700 million dollars last summer. It's weekend success already led to talk of another in the works, an effort that has since been underway with an eye to start in January. Last month's pay dispute halted things for franchise producer and lead star Tom Cruise who had also been busy filming Doug Liman's new crime thriller, American Made (formerly Mena) which comes out a little over a year from this week.
In the meantime, the star of next month's Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is officially on deck to commence filmming the sixth installment this Spring according to an exclusive report at THR which also confirms McQuarrie's return to penning and helming duties. The previous film saw Cruise back in action as IMF field operative Ethan Hunt and his newly-disavowed team up against equally skilled terrorist organization known only as The Syndicate, with the help of vaguely-aligned MI-6 agent, Ilsa Faust played by actress Rebecca Ferguson.
Plot details and other casting info remain pending while next to the likes of possibilities Cruise and actors Ving Rhames, Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg, Ferguson's performance has clearly drawn her up as a newfound favorite among fans, and hopefully the higher-ups at Paramount, to hopefully garner a return.
