Tom Cruise Signs On For 'Mission: Impossible 5'

In somewhat of a surprise move, Tom Cruise has signed on to do a fifth Mission: Impossible.  Big names don't usually stick around in franchises that keep climbing in numbers (although the Fast & Furious movies are changing the game in that category) -- and maybe that's what Cruise wants the M:I series to be.  Nevertheless, it's official: Cruise is back for Mission: Impossible 5.
Ethan Hunt has accepted another mission. Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions have set Tom Cruise in a deal to star in and produce a fifth installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise. Both Paramount and Skydance have confirmed this, but they are not saying who’s writing and directing, or when they are targeting release. I’ve heard all along that the director will be Christopher McQuarrie, Cruise’s frequent collaborator who most recently wrote and directed Jack Reacher, the adaptation of the Lee Child novels that starred Cruise.
