While we wait to see how Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation turns out, Paramount Pictures doesn’t seem to be wasting time on keeping the franchise going. According to the Tracking Board, Bad Robot and Skydance Production is already developing Mission: Impossible 6. Tom Cruise, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and J.J. Abrams are all returning to produce, with Don Granger and Matt Grimm set to serve as executive producers.
I’ve been enjoying the Mission: Impossible film franchise. They’ve all been fun and entertaining action films, and I’m looking forward to seeing how director Christopher McQuarrie’s turns out. I like what I’ve seen from the limited amount of footage that has been released so far, and I’m hoping for the best.
There’s no word on who might direct the upcoming sequel, but on top of Cruise returning to reprise his role as Ethan Hunt, I imagine he’ll be joined by Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, and maybe Paula Patton. None of these actors are officially set to star in it yet, but it seems like a safe bet.
