The last time we saw Ethan Hunt, he was literally hanging off of a plane in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation.Portrayed by Tom Cruise, the action star insisted on doing his own stunts.

Have you got a favorite action movie of the year? We’d presume that would be a battle between “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol.” The latter, directed by Christopher McQuarrie, is clearly written around its set pieces: the action sequences are thought out and designed first and the movie’s plot is reverse engineered to fill the spaces between the explosions and punching. While that seems iffy, all one has to do is see a similar and less-successful take on this dubious approach in “Spectre” to appreciate how well and entertainingly it’s pulled off in ‘Rogue Nation.’ Read More: Review: ‘Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation’ Starring Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, Jeremy Renner & More ‘Rogue Nation’ might not have the greatest story in the world, but looking back, it’s still one of the most enjoyable summer tentpoles if you’re looking for just a blast of escapist entertainment. »

The Kardashians as the Hocus Pocus witches? What about a millennial version of The Sandlot? Thomas Batten shares executives’ latest pitches for revamping beloved classics from the 90s and early 2000s
With news that Christopher Nolan’s breakthrough film Memento is being remade just 15 years after the original, and The Mummy (1999) is getting an equally unsolicited reboot, perhaps starring Tom Cruise, Thomas Batten listens in on Hollywood executives as they plan how to improve classics and blockbusters of recent memory and bring them kicking and screaming into the modern day.

It appears as though Universal are not messing about when it comes to casting their upcoming Monsters Universe. Following the news that they’re looking to cast Angelina Jolie (Lara Croft: Tomb Raider) as The Bride of Frankenstein and Scarlet Johansson in Creature From the Black Lagoon, Variety are reporting that they’re in talks with Tom Cruise (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) to star in The Mummy.
Alex Kurtzman is overseeing the Monsters Universe, and will direct this reboot. Plot details are vague, but reports are suggesting that the movie will be set in present day, unlike all previous Universal Mummy movies.
Their Monsters Universe will see classic Universal Monsters such as The Wolf Man, Dracula, Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Invisible Man and Frankenstein’s Monster get solo movies before culminating in an Avengers-style team-up movie. Rumours are also suggesting that the monsters may show up in each other’s films. »

It sounds like Universal Pictures is really looking for the highest level of A-list talent to headline their upcoming shared monster movie universe as a day after news broke that Academy Award-winner Angelina Jolie (Maleficent) was being courted for Bride Of Frankenstein, Variety has learned that global superstar Tom Cruise (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation) is currently in talks to star in Universal's reboot of The Mummy, subsequently lending a helping hand to Universal as they work toward launching their monster universe. Plot details are scarce, but the film has been confirmed to be set in present day, unlike the Brendan Fraser Mummy trilogy. This time around, rumor has it that the Mummy will most likely be a female, and that Cruise may be playing an ex-Navy seal. Alex Kurtzman (People Like Us) is on-board to direct and Jon Spaihts (Doctor Strange; Passengers) is currently penning the script. Kurtzman will »
Variety reports that actor Tom Cruise is in talks to headline director Alex Kurtzman’s “The Mummy” reboot for Universal Pictures. Universal recently tapped Kurtzman and “Fast & Furious” producer Chris Morgan to oversee their classic monster franchises such as “Dracula”, “Bride of Frankenstein”, “The Wolfman”, and “The Mummy” in a shared cinematic universe.
Cruise is currently filming Paramount Pictures’ “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” with director Edward Zwick (“The Last Samurai”). Cruise was also in negotiations to reteam with his “Edge of Tomorrow” director Doug Liman for the sci-fi film, “Luna Park »

Update: Deadline have debunked the rumours of Cruise casting in The Mummy reboot, saying “both Universal and the star’s people tell Deadline adamantly that no deal with Cruise is in the works for the film.”
It looks like Universal are really going for it in terms of their planned monster movie universe. Yesterday we heard that they want Angelina Jolie for The Bride Of Frankenstein and now it seems that Tom Cruise is being courted for a role in The Mummy reboot.

Yesterday, we had the news that Angelina Jolie was being targeted by Universal to take the lead in its upcoming Bride Of Frankenstein reboot. Now we learn that the studio is looking to lure another big name to its classic monsters movie universe, as Tom Cruise is on its radar for The Mummy.
The Mummy reboot is set for release in 2017, with Alex Kurtzman directing the film. Variety has broken the news that Tom Cruise is reportedly in talks to take on a major role in The Mummy. Furthermore, he's also eyed to take on an ongoing role in the larger classic monsters shared universe.
Cruise had been linked for a long time with a part in Universal's planned Van Helsing movie reboot, although that came to nothing. »
When most people think about The Mummy they picture Brendan Fraser running around a bunch of late '90s CGI in a broad family adventure comedy. A few generations before that, though, The Mummy was a more serious affair; a legit horror movie about archaeologists who carelessly and cluelessly reanimated the corpse of a dark priest who was buried alive centuries ago. Recently Universal has been plotting a reboot for The Mummy (and its other classic monster movies like Dracula and Frankenstein) for yet another new generation, and now they may finally have found the gas to get everything off the ground thanks to negotiations with potential star Tom Cruise. Unfortunately it's currently unclear if he'll be playing a human character or the undead Egyptian priest Imhotep...

Variety is reporting that Tom Cruise is in talks to take the lead in Universal's reboot of their The Mummy franchise. Jon Spaihts (Prometheus, Doctor Strange and Passengers) is penning the script. Alex Kurtzman (Stark Trek and Into Darkness, Aliens and Cowboys) was asked by Universal to start up their monster films again, along with Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious 6 and Furious 7). He will direct the pic. What we have assembled before us is some serious studio firepower. The film is to be set in present day, unlike its predecessors, and the Universal monster films will all tie in together at some point. Characters from the monster universe films are expected to crop up in each other's installments before culminating in an "Avengers"-style tie-in film.Oh, goody...

Last week, a report surfaced that offered new insight into Universal Pictures' Monsters Shared Universe franchise, which is being lead by Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan. While last year's Dracula Untold served as a "prologue" for this shared universe, the first full-fledged adventure will be the Untitled Mummy Reboot, directed by Alex Kurtzman, which will start shooting in early 2016. Today we have a new report from Variety, which claims that Tom Cruise is in early talks to star in the Mummy reboot, although reps from both the studio and the actor tell Deadline that he is not in contention to star at all.
The Variety report claims that Tom Cruise won't produce, but he is expected to be involved in the development. Jon Spaihts (Passengers) is writing the screenplay, with director Alex Kurtzman also set to produce with Chris Morgan and Sean Daniel. All of the characters in this monster universe, »
Word hit the interwebs earlier today that Tom Cruise was in talks for the upcoming reboot of The Mummy. The story seemed a little thin so we opted to wait before writing about it. Moments ago Deadline got to the… Continue Reading →

Slated for a March 24th, 2017 theatrical release, The Mummy is expected to be the first of many Universal Monster movie reboots, with the ultimate goal being to create a shared cinematic universe including Wolf Man, Dracula, Van Helsing, the Bride of Frankenstein, the titular characters from Creature from the Black Lagoon and The Phantom of the Opera, and more.
Comprised of a sizable creative team of ten writers, the Universal Monsters reboot initiative is being headed by Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan, with the former set to be in the director's chair for The Mummy reboot. »

There is no reverse engineering of the Marvel formula more risky right now than what Universal is attempting with their shared universe of monster movies. That risk reportedly just got a little less terrifying for the studio, though, if Tom Cruise really is in talks to star in "The Mummy," the first film that they're using to help launch what they hope will be a major cornerstone of this new franchise. That's a huge win for the studio, and Cruise is one of those guys who works tirelessly once he's signed on to something. Considering how important he will be to the entire monster universe, not just his one film, this is a big moment for Universal. In essence, this is their Robert Downey Jr., which seems like an interesting echo when you realize that at one point, Tom Cruise was attached to play Tony Stark for New Line in their "Iron Man" movie. »

Update: According to Deadline, the news that Tom Cruise may be in negotiations to star in Universal's upcoming reboot of "The Mummy" is false, with the site claiming that both the studio and the actor's representatives are denying that report's veracity.
As we reported earlier, Variety had the scoop that Cruise was in talks to headline the new version of "The Mummy," and help steer the studio's grand plan to revive all of its classic monster movies. But rival trade Deadline is debunking that report, claiming, "Both Universal and the star's people tell Deadline adamantly that no deal with Cruise is in the works for the film."
Of course, Deadline didn't get either party to go on the record with those statements. (Universal declined to comment on Variety's story.) But the site says that Cruise is simply too busy to take the part -- whatever it may be -- citing »
