Christopher McQuarrie is officially signed on to direct Mission: Impossible 5. The news comes as actor Tom Cruise is also about to seem director Doug Liman's next film, Edge Of Tomorrow, a huge screen adaptation of a 2004 manga, from a screenplay that McQuarrie also scribed.
I not too long ago became a fan of McQuarrie following watching the 2012 film, Jack Reacher (speaking of which, I ought to review that 1 currently). And I was pretty pleased with what I saw in that certain film being McQuarrie's second directorial work since the 2000 film, The Way Of The Gun.
The Mission: Not possible franchise is 1 of my favourite film lines as an action fan, and with Cruise and McQuarrie teaming up as soon as far more, I have some quite higher hopes.
That stated, right here is the official press release from Paramount Photos:
