– that’s exactly what director Christopher McQuarrie
shared today on his Twitter
account. And you already know what that means – Jack Reacher
writer and director is officially on board to direct Mission: Impossible 5
! Ok, we’re not actually surprised with this news, after all – McQuarrie has been the rumored director of the fifth M:I 5
since it was announced.
So, what do we know about the project at this moment? Basically – nothing. I mean, we know that Iron Man 3
co-writer Drew Pearce
is in charge for the screenplay, while Tom Cruise
is once again on board to play Ethan Hunt (and produce the movie as well).
Still, this could be an interesting combination. It worked pretty well for last year’s thriller Jack Reacher
which McQuarrie directed from his own script (and Cruise played the title character). On the other hand, McQuarrie is also a credited writer on Cruise’s upcoming film Edge of Tomorrow
So, we definitely have no doubts that Mission: Impossible 5
could be as succesfull as 2011’s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol
, directed by Brad Bird
, which is the highest-grossing M: I
film (a worldwide gross of $694.7 million!)
Hope we’ll soon have more impossible
updates to share, stay tuned!
