The news has been confirmed by both Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions, but a director or writer has not been announced. However, Deadline is reporting that Christopher McQuarrie, who wrote and directed “Jack Reacher,” is likely to collaborate with Cruise again for this new project.
It’s no surprise that Cruise would be willing to reprise is spy role again, especially after the success of the franchise’s fourth instalment. “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” made almost $700 million around the world, which is a record high for a Cruise starrer.
