It’s official! M:I 6 will start shooting next year.
Light the match and cue the music.
After contentious dealmaking halted pre-production on Mission: Impossible 6, earlier this summer, Tom Cruise is on the verge of closing his deal to return to the Paramount action-thriller franchise.
Cruise’s return for a sixth installment in a movie series that he has been toplining and producing since 1996 seemed like a no-brainer, but negotiations with Paramount took an unexpected turn with the studio, which was co-financing the movie with Skydance, digging in on things such as backend profit participation.
The project was heading towards a January 2017 start when the pause button was pushed.
Now sources tell THR that issues have been resolved and Mission is being re-started. Spring 2017 will be the new start time.
Christopher McQuarrie, who reinvigorated the franchise with the fifth installment, wrote the script and will direct.
A new poster for Jack Reacher – Never Go Back has been released:
I’ve added 2 posters for Jack Reacher – Never Go Back and 4 Stills (2 are high quality versions of what we already had). Enjoy!
Jack Reacher – Never Go Back opens in US on October 21st.
Jack Reacher must uncover the truth behind a major government conspiracy in order to clear his name. On the run as a fugitive from the law, Reacher uncovers a potential secret from his past that could change his life forever.
Tom Cruise posted a photo on his twitter earlier this week, after the wrap of The Mummy shooting in Namibia:
The Mummy is directed by Alex Kurtzman, from a script by Jon Spaihts and Dylan Kussman. The film stars Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Marwan Kenzari, Courtney B. Vance, Russell Crowe and Sofia Boutella as the iconic creature now revealed to be an ancient queen. The film opens June 9, 2017.
Tom Cruise is in Africa shooting The Mummy, and his co-star, Annabelle Wallis just posted this pic on her twitter along with the other co-stars Jake Johnson and Courtney Vance:
Here’s the synopsis:
“Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.”
The movie is set for release on June 9th, 2017.
Very Happy 54th Birthday, dear Tom! Wishing you all the happiness!
