Deadline broke the exclusive news that Tom Cruise will star and produce Mission Impossible 5. The confirmation comes from both Paramount and Skydance Productions that Cruise will return to the role of Ethan Hunt. A role he relaunched for the big screen back in 1996!
Dealine’s Mike Flemming Jr. is reporting that Jack Reacher’s director Christopher McQuarrie is in line to direct the film. J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot will still be over seeing the film. After all Abrams help reignite the franchise with the third installment in 2006.
What is interesting here is that Cruise is now hitting Sean Connery/ James Bond status with his portrayal of Ethan Hunt. What say you Maniacs? Are you ready for another go around with Tom Cruise and the Mission Impossible franchise?
