Last month came the news that Tom Cruise was the one holding up pre-production on a sixth “Mission: Impossible” film due to a dispute with studio Paramount Pictures over pay.
Today, Heat Vision reports that Cruise has now signed a deal to return as Ethan Hunt for a sixth film in the “Mission: Impossible” franchise
Production on the next entry is slated to begin Spring 2017. Presently there’s no word if Cruise got the backend money he was reportedly fighting for, and no word on a potential release date for the film.
Christopher McQuarrie, who directed the most recent fifth installment, wrote the script for this and will direct.
