Tom Cruise signed on for ‘Mission Impossible 5’ with director and writer to be hired soon

Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions have signed Tom Cruise to a deal to star in and produce a fifth installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise. Deadline reports May 6 that both Paramount and Skydance have confirmed this, but they are not saying who’s writing and directing.

David Ellison’s Skydance Productions will once again co-finance the film with Paramount, a role it also serves the same role on Jack Reacher.

The 50-year-old actor will star in the film and will also serve as a producer.

McQuarrie only has two directorial features under his belt—2000’s The Way of the Gun and last year’s Jack Reacher—and so M:I 5 would certainly be his biggest film yet.

Cruise is coming off a strong opening for the sci-fi pic Oblivion and has a couple of other tentpoles in his future.  He’s developing another Jack Reacher film, he’s set to star in Guy Ritchie’s spy adaptation The Man from U.N.C.L.E. opposite Armie Hammer, and he recently attached himselfto Warner Bros.’ sci-fi pic Yukikaze.
