New ‘Mission Impossible’ film set for 2018, Jeremy Renner may not join Tom Cruise

The Mission: Impossible franchise will return in 2018 with Tom Cruise yet again. Paramount has just set a release date for the sixth installment of their action blockbuster franchise, which is being directed by returning Rogue Nation helmer Chris McQuarrie.

Variety reported the news, confirming the date. Mission: Impossible 6 will drop into theaters on July 27, 2018 — the same slot that Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation occupied in 2015.

That date puts Mission: Impossible 6 in direct competition with Warner Bros.’ Aquaman, which has James Wan directing and Jason Momoa and Amber Heard starring.

Mission: Impossible 6 will be the first in the franchise to welcome back a previous director, following earlier installments by Brian De Palma, John Woo, J.J. Abrams, and Brad Bird.

McQuarrie additionally wrote the screenplay for Rogue Nation and is doing the same for Mission: Impossible 6.

Details are being kept under wraps but word is Rebecca Ferguson will return as Ilsa Faust, a breakout character first introduced in Rogue Nation.

No word on Jeremy Renner, who may have scheduling conflicts with Marvel’s slate of films.

MI6, I’m not sure what’s happening. I think it’s going to be coming down to…I know that they’re really wanting to get it going, and I haven’t spoken to Tom yet about where it’s at. I know there might be some conflict with schedules, so I’m not sure what’s going to happen.” Renner said while promoting his latest film, Arrival.

“Avengers is gonna eat up a lot of next year. Gladly, but I certainly hope it doesn’t ultimately get in the way of Tom and I and the gang getting back together for that because I’d love to.”

Mission Impossible 6 will arrive in theaters on July 27, 2018.
