Jack Reacher Director May Accept Mission Impossible 5
Usual Suspects and The Wolverine writer Christopher McQuarrie could be sitting in the director’s chair for Mission Impossible 5.
Last year’s Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol went on to become the most successful instalment in the franchise but it’s also the biggest movie of Tom Cruise’s career. Brad Bird won’t be returning to the adrenaline pumping action series, but Jack Reacher director and All You Need is Kill scriber Christopher McQuarrie’s name has also been thrown into the hat.
The Cruise/McQuarrie partnership started with Bryan Singer’s Valkyrie, rumour has it that McQuarrie also did an uncredited once over on the script for Ghost Protocol so he would be well positioned to take the reigns on M:I 5.
Nothing is a done deal and we live in an age when movie rumours are debunked no sooner than they start, but this seems like a good fit and could lead to a far grittier assignment for Ethan Hunt.
