Every one of the Mission: Impossible movies released to date has been directed by a different filmmaker. This has allowed the Tom Cruise-headlined franchise to continually evolve its style, moving from the technical precision of Brian De Palma to the slow-motion artistry of John Woo; then came J.J. Abrams’ more emotional take, followed by the live-action Saturday morning cartoon fun of the fourth installment, Brad Bird’s Ghost Protocol. Now it’s Oscar-winning screenwriter/director Christopher McQuarrie’s (Jack Reacher) turn to put his spin on the world of Imf agent Ethan Hunt.
The tentatively-titled Mission: Impossible 5 is scheduled to arrive in theaters on Christmas 2015, which means that production ought to be ...

It was recently reported that Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) is close to signing a deal to play Marilyn Monroe in Andrew Dominik's "Blonde." And now comes word that Paramount Pictures is considering the actress to star opposite Tom Cruise in "Mission: Impossible 5." At this point, the news is just a rumor. But according to SchmoesKnow, Chastain will play the lead female role, which is Tom Cruise's right hand woman. There aren't a lot of details, but it sounds like she'll be a fellow agent. "Mission: Impossible 5" will be directed by Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) from a script by Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3). It's set to hit theaters on December 25th, 2015. »
Tom Cruise will be back for Mission Impossible 5 with his Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie, and Schmoes Know has learned the filmmakers may be eyeing Jessica Chastain for a starring role in their film. There aren't many details on what her role might be in the fifth Mission Impossible flick, but the site's source says "the offer is out to Miss Chastain to become Tom Cruise’s right hand woman," so it's probably as an Imf agent, and »

Schmoes Know, a site that has actually been consistently quite good lately on the casting scoop front, says Chastain has received an offer.
It's presently not known what the role will be in the Christopher McQuarrie-directed movie which is currently aiming to begin filming in August for a Christmas 2015 release.

One from the rumour mill this, but thought you'd like to know. Paramount Pictures has set Mission: Impossible 5 for release at the end of 2015, with Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) directing, and Tom Cruise starring.
The first bits of casting news are beginning to filter through, and rumour number one is that the thoroughly excellent Jessica Chastain is being linked with one of the lead roles in the film. She's wanted to play "Tom Cruise's right hand woman" in the movie, and Schmoes Know reports that an offer has been made to her to appear in the film.
Just because she's been offered the movie, that doesn't mean she'll sign up of course. If true though, that'd be a quality piece of casting work for the new Mission: Impossible. »
So, let's start with the caveats. This is a rumor, and it's coming from the folks at Schmoes Know, who in the last little while have been okay with their track record concerning this kind of stuff. That said, this could still totally be off base and wrong, but it's intriguing enough to consider. According to the site, Jessica Chastain is being sought for a starring role in "Mission: Impossible 5" with Tom Cruise, and has received an offer. It's not known what the role would be, but it wouldn't be the first time these two have tried to work together. You might have forgotten but Chastain was originally attached to "Oblivion," but scheduling forced her drop out, and she was replaced by Olga Kurylenko. And theoretically, Chastain would be able to fit this movie into her schedule. Though she just signed up for Andrew Dominik's "Blonde," that movie (last we heard anyway, »

Hot off the news that Jessica Chastain will be playing Marilyn Monroe in Andrew Dominik’s Blonde, we’re now hearing that the much in-demand actress is wanted for Mission: Impossible 5. Though not confirmed, the report comes from Schmoes Know, who have a decent track record when it comes to scoops. According to them, the role is unspecified, but it would definitely be the female lead.
So far, we don’t know a whole lot about the next instalment in the successful action franchise. What’s been confirmed already is that Christopher McQuarrie is set to direct, and Drew Pearce will pen the script. Tom Cruise will of course be starring, and the actor will be producing alongside J.J. Abrams. Add Chastain into that line-up and you have a very impressive group of talent behind the film.
The Schmoes mention that they’d love to see Jessica Chastain play a fellow agent, »

"....in the near future an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world.
"'Lt. Col. Bill Cage' (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission.
"Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside 'Special Forces' warrior 'Rita Vrataski' (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated »

A "very trusted source" for the Schmoes report that Paramount are looking to sign Jessica Chastain for a lead role next to Tom Cruise in the still untitled fifth Mission Impossible movie. Details on this role are sparse, but the site also say that should she accept, she'll play "Tom Cruise’s right hand woman". That sounds more like a fellow agent than another love interest, but who knows. We'll have to treat this as a rumor for now, but expect one of the trades to stick their oar in sooner rather than later. Iron Man 3 writer Drew Pearce will pen the screenplay for the movie, with Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie at the helm. »
(Cbr) After killing Tom Cruise then killing him again (and again) in "Edge of Tomorrow", director Doug Liman plans to stick around the sci-fi genre. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the filmmaker has been hired to adapt Philip Reeve’s upcoming children’s book "Railhead" for Warner Bros. and Di Novi Pictures. It takes place in a future world where travelers get around space via trains that pass through portals. The protagonist is a thief who’s hired to steal an object that turns out to be of a higher value and significance than he ever imagined, leading to a great adventure with galaxy-spanning consequences. There’s no word on when "Railhead" will enter production. The book hits shelves in fall 2015. »

As I am sure all of you have heard in the last few days, there is a rumor that Orange is the New Black star Laura Prepon is dating Scientology mad man, Tom Cruise. It seems like an odd story, because it is. There is also something about it that just doesn’t seem right. Not saying one [&hellip

<< Continued from Summer Forecast: #1 - 1213. The Fault in our Stars (June 6): As usual, there's not a ton of compelling content for women this Summer. One exception to that is The Fault in Our Stars, which is a romantic drama based off the popular John Green novel. The trailer has over 15 million views on YouTube*in line with most would-be blockbusters*and star Shailene Woodley is coming off a break-out role in Divergent. Look for this to be a solid hit as well. (Domestic: $120 million, Foreign: $55 million)14. Deliver Us From Evil (July 2): Horror movies can provide a nice alternative to all of the big-budget spectacle, R-rated humor, and animated fare that dominates multiplexes during the Summer months. Last year's The Conjuring was a surprise hit with $137.4 million; if anything is going to match that this year, its Deliver Us from Evil. The strong trailer features a lengthy, very frightening »

Doug Liman’s first feature-length directorial outing in four years, the Tom Cruise-starring sci-fi blockbuster “Edge of Tomorrow,” sees release later this year and the “Bourne Identity” director isn’t wasting time in lining up a follow-up gig. THR reports Liman is being courted by Warner Bros. to helm an adaptation of the forthcoming children’s novel “Railhead.” Set for release in fall 2015 and written by Philip Reeve, the book “is set in a futuristic world where trains run through space via portals. The main character is a petty thief hired to steal an object that happens to be more important than he was led to believe, setting off an adventure that could change the course of the galaxy.” Hopefully, “Railhead” turns out better than Liman’s last attempt at a Ya novel, 2008’s “Jumper.” Though he’s not a critical darling, “Underworld” director Len Wiseman is still a »

Judge Michael McShane has denied Nom’s request to delay the marriage equality trial in Oregon so they can intervene. But he did schedule a hearing on standing for May 1, making it unlikely that activists will get a ruling before the May 23 deadline to turn in signatures for a ballot initiative.
By now you’ve seen the incredible portrait of Tom Daley created out of the homophobic tweets directed at the diver since he came out. Created by Conner Collins, he spoke to Buzzfeed about the inspiration. “All I wanted to show was that there is a person involved. »

There are few auteurs as instantly recognizable and divisive as Stanley Kubrick, few filmmakers as idiosyncratic or groundbreaking. His work spans the entirety of life itself–sometimes in the same film–and has inspired almost as much derision as hosannas. There is no easy consensus on Kubrick’s films–though you may not be terribly surprised by our writers’ choice for his best, it’s hard to imagine that your ranking of his work will line up wholly with ours–nor on the messages imparted within. Is The Shining secretly about the moon landing? Is 2001? What is he really saying about violence in society in A Clockwork Orange? And so on. Closing out (some weeks late, granted) our monthly theme on his works, here is Sound on Sight’s ranking of the films of Stanley Kubrick. Enjoy. Share. Debate. We know you’ll want to debate.

Doug Liman’s schedule is becoming quite crowded. The Mr. and Mrs. Smith filmmaker most recently completed the upcoming sci-fi pic Edge of Tomorrow, starring Tom Cruise, and now Warner Bros. is looking to stay in business with Liman as Heat Vision reports that he is currently in negotiations to direct an adaptation of Railhead, an upcoming book by author Philip Reeve. Warner Bros. recently acquired the novel, which takes place in a futuristic society in which trains run through space portals. The crux of the story revolves around a petty thief who is hired to steal an object that turns out to be much more powerful that he was led to believe. The book doesn’t hit shelves until Fall 2015, but WB has gotten a jump on the material. Next up for Liman, though, is the video game adaptation Splinter Cell, which has Tom Hardy set to star. That »
