MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 6 Is Set to be Released in Summer of 2018
Paramount Pictures has scheduled Skydance Media’s Mission: Impossible 6 to be released on July 27th, 2018. You know what that means? It means that Tom Cruise might battle Jason Momoa at the box office because that’s the same date that Warner Bros. is looking to release James Wan’s Aquaman.
I’m a big fan of Cruise’s Mission: Impossible franchise. The last movie, Rogue Nation, was pretty awesome, so it’s good to know that writer and director of that film, Christopher McQuarrie, is coming back to helm the sixth film in the franchise as well. He will be the first director in the franchise to direct two films.
When talking about the sequel at CinemaCon last year, Cruise said that there will have "more incredible set pieces, stunts…and what I think is a very entertaining and compelling story.” The director later explained that the film would have its own unique style.
I’m excited to see what mission Ethan Hunt and his team take on next. Rebecca Ferguson is also set to reprise her role as the mysterious Ilsa Faust from the last film. I’m sure the rest of the usual suspects will return as well.
Paramount has also set a December 22, 2017 release date for Alexander Payne’s next film, Downsizing.
