With Tom Cruise and Paramount settling their differences over his pay cheque, it looks like filming is at last getting ready to start on Mission: Impossible 6.
The cameras should start rolling in the spring or early summer, with filming looking likely to switch to a new, chic location as well. While Paramount have yet to confirm it, talks are currently taking place for a segment of Mission: Impossible 6 to be filmed in Paris, a new venue for the franchise: Rogue Nation was based in London and Vienna, while Ghost Protocol was anchored in Dubai.
Even though the shoot is just over the horizon, there’s no word on plot details, although Rebecca Ferguson is strongly rumoured to be reprising her Rogue Nation role for this next instalment in the adventures of Ethan Hunt. If so, she could be the first actress ever to survive into a second Mission: Impossible.
However, Christopher McQuarrie, the man behind Rogue Nation and Jack Reacher, is definitely returning to both write the script and direct, making him the first director to helm more than one M:I movie. Something of a Cruise favourite since the days of Valkyrie, their version of The Mummy arrives in UK cinemas this June.
In the meantime, a US release date of 27 July 2018 is being eyed for Mission: Impossible 6.
