This spring sees Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation director Christopher McQuarrie becoming the first filmmaker to return to the franchise as he reunites with Tom Cruise and Rogue Nation’s Rebecca Ferguson for M:i 6 Mission Impossible.
During an interview with Empire, McQuarrie revealed that production is set to get underway in Paris on April 10th, while he also discussed his approach to the latest instalment of the spy series, stating that he wants to explore the character of Ethan Hunt, as well as delivering the franchise’s signature action set pieces.
“[The film] starts in a very unconventional way. It does not start with action. That was the hardest pitch of this movie. I’ve seen five of these movies and I don’t know who Ethan Hunt is. One movie sort of dealt with his personal life; the other movies are about people speculating what’s really going on in Ethan’s head. »

After a few stumbling blocks on the road to the latest Mission: Impossible sequel, production is finally set to kick off in April and writer/director Christopher McQuarrie recently spoke with Empire to tease what Mission: Impossible 6 has in store. Unlike the fantastic opening sequence of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation which saw Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) clutching to the side of a... Read More »

Mission: Impossible is an interesting franchise. To date, each film has been directed by a different filmmaker with a very different palate and sensibility, creating different contexts in which Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt runs like a mad man from explosions. 2015’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation is one of the best of the bunch, which is perhaps why Christopher McQuarrie is the first director to reprise his stint with Cruise on the Impossible Mission Force team. And that’s good news, so is the already confirmed return of Rebecca Ferguson’s beguiling Ilsa Faust.
Now, McQuarrie (who also wrote Rogue Nation) is finally opening up about what to expect from the new film while chatting with Empire. For starters, he confirmed Paris will be a »
Even in its earliest days, no one was showing up to watch “Mission: Impossible” for the story, and with each successive entry in the franchise, the setpieces have been the star of the show. While you’d probably have to think a few moments about the plot of “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation,” you probably remember the opening scene with Tom Cruise hanging off the plane, or the opera house sequence, or the motorcycle chase, or the underwater scene.

Though history well tell you that many movie franchises tend to peter out once they surpass the third installment, Paramount’s Mission: Impossible has gone from strength to strength. Six years ago, Brad Bird’s Ghost Protocol stormed to a whopping $690 million at the international box office, while Christopher McQuarrie’s excellent Rogue Nation landed in the same financial ballpark in 2015 – $682 million, to be exact.
If nothing else, it proves the Tom Cruise-fronted series still retains its status as one of Hollywood’s more lucrative action tentpoles, and Paramount, Cruise and McQuarrie have accepted their next assignment: Mission: Impossible 6.
With a July 27th, 2018 release date in place, the studio is slowly beginning to gear up for Ethan Hunt’s next globe-trotting adventure and thanks to Empire, we know it’ll officially enter production in Paris on April 10th. The outlet caught up with writer-director Christopher McQuarrie – who has »

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Paramount Pictures is eyeing Paris as a potential filming location for Ethan Hunt's next impossible mission. Nothing is set in stone just yet, but THR's sources claim the studio is currently in advanced talks with local officials to shoot part of the eagerly awaited Mission: Impossible 6 in Paris, France. The report adds that production on the sixth film is expected to begin this spring and it's believed that if the deal closes, filming will move to Paris in late spring and/or early summer. Global superstar Tom Cruise has already been confirmed to return as ace Imf agent Ethan Hunt and Rogue Nation helmer Christopher McQuarrie will return to the director's chair, utilizing a script he wrote. No word yet on the rest of the cast - although Rogue Nation breakout Rebecca Ferguson has been heavily rumored to return - but we »
Mission: Impossible 6 looks like its setting its sights on Paris. The previous films have shot on location in England, Prague, Dubai, the desert, Austria and even China, but now the franchise will head to France this summer for principal photography.
Mission Impossible Rogue Nation
The Hollywood Reporter reported the news of the new glamorous location with the news that Rogue Nation helmer Christopher McQuarrie will return to direct this one. Tom Cruise will, of course, return as Ethan Hunt, and other key players, including Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames are also expected to come back for another adventure with the Imf.

The sixth Mission: Impossible film is set to go before the cameras this year, with production getting going as early as the spring. The movie had reportedly been held up due to disagreements over remuneration (a pay dispute, basically), but those now seem to have been resolved. As such, Mission: Impossible 6 – that’ll again be headlined by Tom Cruise – is nearly ready to go.
The new movie has now secured Paris as one of its key locations too, with the film set to shoot there in the early summer. Christopher McQuarrie is returning to direct, following his success with Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, and he’s also penned the script.
Rebecca Ferguson is also »
The Mission Impossible franchises has truly been revving up with almost every installment. As the sixth film nears production, a shooting location seems to be set.
Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt has been all over the world for the Imf. Stopping as many world ending catastrophes as he possibly could. Mission Impossible 2 ventured to Australia while M:i 3 hit up America. We famously got Cruise hanging off a building in Dubai for Ghost Protocol, and Rogue Nation was based primarily in London and Vienna. Now it looks like M:i 6 will be shooting in Paris, France.
Christopher McQuarrie returns as the first director to helm two M:i films. While we have no plot details on M:i 6, but at least we know McQuarrie is one of the best writers working today, as well as turning himself into a strong director as well. He has had a great relationship working with Cruise for the scripts for Edge of Tomorrow, »

You can't keep a good spy down! Mission: Impossible has become quite the warhorse franchise, and it sounds like Paramount will keep pumping them out until the end of time. Which, judging from the nightly news, could be as early as next week. Mission: Impossible 6 is already planned for a 2018 summer release date. And it sounds like production is about to heat up.
Tom Cruise will be back as super spy Ethan Hunt in this sixth installment of the popular action series. Production on the as yet untitled Mission: Impossible 6 is eyeing a late spring or early summer start date. Things got a little behind, as Tom Cruise and the studio were engaged in what has been referred to as a mild pay dispute.
It's one of those quiet stories that goes under the radar, but when Mission: Impossible 6 comes out in 2017, that'll make it a 21 year old franchise. Tom Cruise will have played Ethan Hunt for far longer than any actor has ever been James Bond, and he'll be able to look over at Hugh Jackman and say, "What? You stopped playing Wolverine after only 17 years? Lightweight." Yes, the Mission: Impossible series, with its penchant for quasi-rebooting itself with different directors tackling their respective installments with their own unique flare, has quietly become one of the most dependable staples in Hollywood.
That's no easy task when you have a star that's been as embattled as Cruise has been at times, and when you share a Hollywood landscape where everyone has an itchy trigger finger when it comes to rebooting and resetting franchises.
While, at one point, the status of Mission: Impossible 6 »

Off the back of his generally quite successful new take on The Magnificent Seven, director Antoine Fuqua was juggling a couple of projects. There’s a sequel to his hit take on The Equalizer, starring Denzel Washington. And then there’s the remake of Scarface, to which he’s been attached for some time. Both are with different studios, the former with Sony, the latter with Universal.
However, it looked like it came to make your mind up time when the two films were set to overlap. And Fuqua has chosen The Equalizer.
Both Sony Pictures and Denzel Washington were keen to fast track the new film, which is now likely to land in 2018. Fuqua had already »
One week a month, Watch This offers movie recommendations inspired by the week’s new releases or premieres. This week: With Sundance in full swing, we’re looking back at some of the best directorial debuts that premiered at the festival.
Public Access (1993)
“What’s wrong with Brewster?” That deceptively simple question, spoken at the start of a Podunk public access TV show, kicks off the drama in Public Access, and also kicked off the careers of director Bryan Singer and screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie. The film premiered at Sundance and won the Grand Jury Prize, yet failed to secure distribution, an event that would be almost unheard of nowadays. (Recent Grand Jury winners include Fruitvale Station, Whiplash, and Me And Earl And The Dying Girl.) But although it took awhile for the movie to make its way to the public, it delivered both Singer and McQuarrie to Hollywood, helping ...
