The Mission Impossible franchise just keeps plugging along. The previous installment, directed by Brad Bird, did very well at the box office but was reviewed lukewarm by critics. But where there’s money means there’s another sequel opportunity. Tom Cruse and company are currently in the midst of gearing up and prepping the fifth film. This time with Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie.
The rumor on the street is that Cruise and Co are going after Jessica Chastain for the female lead. Likely as an IMF agent, not the romantic counterpart. We’ll see what shakes loose. Ms Chastain has been in high demand as of late and the addition of her talents would be a big win for the production.
