Tom Cruise has officially signed on to produce and star in the fifth installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise. Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions aren’t saying who is directing the movie yet, but we’ve been hearing for awhile now that it’s going to be Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie.
According to the report, the writer and director of MI:5 will be finalized shortly. J.J. Abrams is producing the movie, but we know for a fact he won’t be directing the film. I’ll be surprised if McQuarrie doesn’t end up directing the film.
I loved Brad Bird‘s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, and hopefully they can come up with another fun action/adventure story to tell for the character!
