‘Mission: Impossible 5’ update: More Jeremy Renner, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg and nods to original

Production is nearing the end on Mission: Impossible 5 in London, with the film’s summer release looming without a trailer or much information to excite fans. Writer/director Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) has made several posts on Twitter about the new Tom Cruise adventure throughout filming, but went into Q&A mode on Saturday.

McQuarrie says that the ending of the movie did not have to be rewritten or reshot, it had to be prepped. That’s what they’re filming right now. He also confirmed the film’s subtitle and a trailer will drop very soon.

@jimreordereilly I’m not ashamed to admit many writers have helped on this movie. Directing takes up all my time.  – @chrismcquarrie tweeted March 7, in regard to writing vs. directing duties.

Collider summarized a bunch of the key points from the Twitter exchange:

  • When asked if we’d get another great McQuarrie shootout, he responded “Kind of. Trust me.”
  • Those expecting the film to be old school “won’t be disappointed.”
  • Nods to the original “abound.”
  • Sean Harris is indeed playing the film’s villain.
  • We will see more of Jeremy Renner’s Agent Brandt, Ving Rhames has more screentime than he did in Ghost Protocol, and Simon Pegg’s Benji “gets his hands plenty dirty.”
  • The film will have the feel of an episode of the old show.
  • We’ll know from the trailer what McQuarrie wanted to do in this story that hadn’t been done in other M:I stories.
  • There will be some score-less action scenes as in Jack Reacher and McQuarrie’s first film, The Way of the Gun.
  • There are specific Brian De Palma references.
  • McQuarrie broke his personal record for footage shot.
