Not long ago came word that filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie was in talks to write and direct the upcoming sixth film in the “Mission: Impossible” film franchise.
The report was quite believable – McQuarrie penned and directed this past Summer’s “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” which scored the best critical notices of the franchise and has pulled in $682 million worldwide.
Today, McQuarrie used Twitter to confirm that he will return:
Mission: Accepted #MI6

This would mark the first time a director has helmed more than one film in the franchise. Production on the film is expected to begin as early as August next year to the film could be out in cinemas by Summer 2017.
