As had been suggested earlier in the year, it sounds like the gap between Mission: Impossible movies is shortening. There's always been at least three and a half years between the movies thus far (often longer), but there had already been a suggestion that Paramount would want to get Mission: Impossible 6 moving a bit quicker if it could.
Turns out that may be the case, too.
Tom Cruise went on The Daily Show yesterday in the Us, and chatted to Jon Stewart about the plans for a further film. "We're starting to work on it now", he confirmed, adding "we'll probably start shooting it next summer".
That's as far as the details go thus far, and of course, much will hinge on whether Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation hits at the box office. »
Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation has only just hit cinemas and plans are already going ahead for the next movie.
"We're starting to work on it now. We'll probably start shooting it next summer," he explained to host Jon Stewart.
The sixth Mission: Impossible movie could be the fastest sequel to come out of the series yet, after the first five films had at least four years between.
So far the franchise has grossed a combined $2 billion at the worldwide box office - which will find no trouble rising as Rogue Nation opens in over 40 countries.
Paramount is yet to officially announce the next Mission: Impossible movie. »
Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation is climbing, dashing, jumping and careening into our cinemas, but Tom Cruise already has his eyes on the next M:i prize. According to the man himself – who pulls double duty as star and producer on the franchise – he’s already planning the sixth instalment.“We’re starting to work on it now,” Cruise told Jon Stewart on Tuesday night’s The Daily Show. “We’ll probably start shooting it next summer.” It is, of course, far too early for any details; and besides, Paramount has made no announcement. But given the seemingly evergreen franchise's status, the glowing reviews for Rogue Nation and the studio’s desire to maintain the franchises it has, we’d been shocked if something wasn’t solidified the minute the new movie opens at the box office, especially if it’s a big hit. If tradition keeps up, the film will swap »
Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, which we can attest is a heck of a good time at the movies, hits theaters on Friday (July 31, 2015 to be precise), and that means star Tom Cruise has been popping up everywhere to promote it. In doing so, he's already begun dropping some teases about a few sequels to movies of his that we might see. Mission: Impossible 6 could go next summer. While stopping by The Daily Show, Jon Stewart asked Cruise if he had plans on making any more after this one, to which Cruise let out an unambiguous "We're starting to work on it now and will probably start shooting it next summer." It's nice that Cruise isn't playing a noncommittal game of "Let's see how this one does," which you often hear about...

“We’re starting to work on it now. We’ll probably start shooting it next summer,” he told host Jon Stewart.

More sequels! Always more sequels. With the latest Mission: Impossible movie about to hit theaters, Tom Cruise is out doing the press rounds and was in New York City this week talking with everyone. During the premiering, MTV News caught up with him and got a very brief tease about a possible Edge of Tomorrow sequel. Everyone has been catching up to that one and realizing how damn good it is, and now they want a sequel, so he says "I pitched it to [Rogue Nation director Christopher] McQuarrie and [Edge of Tomorrow director] Doug [Liman]. We were there one night and I was like, I’ve got an idea for it..." That's all that was revealed, but on "The Daily Show" Cruise confirmed some bigger news regarding more Mission: Impossible. While speaking with Jon Stewart as the guest on "The Daily Show", Cruise was talking about making the Mission: Impossible movies (including producing them). He was asked: "You »

At the Daily Show panel of the 2015 Television Critics Association summer press tour, Trevor Noah announced that he would be keeping the senior producers from Jon Stewart's era but probably lose some of the Fox News jokes. “The Daily Show was based on an emerging 24 hour news cycle,” Noah said, according to EW. "The biggest challenge is going to be an exciting one I’m sure is how are we going to bring all of that together looking at it from a bigger lens as opposed to just going after one source — which was historically Fox News.” This means all of the internet can be pilloried!Noah will be keeping the executive producers around: Steve Bodow, Jen Flanz, Tim Greenberg, Jill Katz, and Adam Lowitt have all re-signed their contracts. That said, Noah said it won't be the same Tds because he's not Jon Stewart. "I’m taking things »

I won't be seeing Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation until Thursday night at the absolute earliest, but that won't stop Tom Cruise from discussing the possibility of a sixth installment in the long-running action franchise. "I love making these movies. Mission Impossible is the first film I ever produced," Cruise told Jon Stewart on "The Daily Show" last night. "Now this is the fifth one. This is the fifth one. It's pretty amazing because ... I thought if I could keep making these kinds of movies," Cruise continues, at which point Stewart cuts him off and points out: "I think you -- I mean if I may, and I don't mean to be presumptuous -- I think you can. I'm pretty sure it's not like Death to Smoochy where they're like, 'One and done!' You can get in there and knock around a few more." Below-the-belt shots at Death to Smoochy aside, »

Trevor Noah, who takes over "The Daily Show" Sept. 28 after Jon Stewart leaves Aug. 6, just outlined his vision for the show at the Television Critics Association press tour. And while he said "it's about the show first, and I'm the person people are looking at," there are changes ahead related to its new host. Primarily, he said the show will reflect his perspective. Compared to Stewart, "the way we would look at the same story would be completely different ... because we would have access to different jokes, different sides of the story" and have "different sensitivities." He said that "the way you approach a story" is affected by your background and experiences. For example, with a story related to race, "Jon would have to empathize; I myself come from a different place." Regarding the story about Mike Huckabee's offensive Holocaust reference, Noah said, "Jon would comment on it from »

“I’m not in the news business. I’m in the comedy business,” Trevor Noah said today about taking over Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, his comments coming the morning after that show’s current host Jon Stewart went on the air to discuss his two private visits to the White House to meet with President Obama about the program’s coverage of Obama’s administration. Stewart’s role in the country “became bigger and bigger in the media landscape because of what he was saying,”… »
Trevor Noah has responded to the backlash that ensued after his “Daily Show” appointment was announced in March, which prompted the resurfacing of tweets of his that were deemed racist, anti-Semitic and sexist.
“I don’t strive to be offensive,” he said Wednesday morning at the Television Critics Assn. press tour event in Beverly Hills of his Twitter faux pas. “That’s not who I am as a person. That’s not who I am as a performer.”
“You can never control what people find as offensive or not,” he continued, noting that his fans around the world understand the context of his jokes, plus his unique sarcasm and humor, which he hopes his Comedy Central viewers will soon understand and learn to appreciate. “That’s going to be one of the things — getting to know my audience, getting my audience to know me.”
Following his press debut last night, »

It's the end of an era, but not the end of The Daily Show. Jon Stewart is set to exit the show on August 6, and during the 2015 summer TCA press tour, his replacement Trevor Noah revealed things might change a little bit with him at the helm. "In terms of the show physically, we're obviously changing the sets a tiny bit," Noah told the room full of reporters. "But we still want the show to be recognized as The Daily Show because that's what it still is." As for the content of the show, expect The Daily Show to tackle the same issues even with a new host. "Issues are not really changing in America and in the world," Noah said. "Really, it's just a different angle »
“The Daily Show” may soon have a new host, but the executive team remains the same. Steve Bodow, Jen Flanz, Tim Greenberg, Jill Katz and Adam Lowitt will continue as executive producers of Trevor Noah’s turn as 11 p.m. Comedy Central host. Outgoing face Jon Stewart was the only other executive producer. “Steve, Jen, Tim, Jill and Adam have been key architects of ‘The Daily Show’s’ success, and we are excited that they will continue at the core of the creative team working with Trevor Noah as the show evolves,” said Comedy Central President Michele Ganeless. “They remain committed to delivering. »

Jon Stewart dropped by Tuesday’s episode of “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore” to talk about his alleged “secret” meetings with President Obama at the White House. Stewart, referred to as the Senior “Don’t Give a Shit Anymore” correspondent by Wilmore, shed some light on how the president must be feeling as he heads into the final stretch of his term. “Is it true Obama called you down to the White House like twice for ‘secret’ meetings?” Wilmore asked, referring to the Politico story that alleged Stewart visited the White House for clandestine meetings with the president.

While he still looks a decade younger than his age, there's only so many years left until 53 year-old Tom Cruise, won't be able to do his own stunts, so it certainly seems like he's trying to get his action oriented roles in the can before his body lets up. He's currently shooting the drug thriller "Mena" with Doug Liman, this fall he'll team with Ed Zwick for "Jack Reacher 2," and it looks like he'll suit up as Ethan Hunt again next summer. Hitting "The Daily Show" to promote "Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation," which is already earning rave notices (read our review), Cruise reveals that plans are already underway for a sixth installment. “We’re starting to work on it now. We’ll probably start shooting it next summer," he told Jon Stewart. But all this likely depends on the box office receipts for 'Rogue Nation,' which is apparently »

With his final Daily Show on the horizon, Jon Stewart took time from Tuesday's episode to reveal some insider secrets – like whom he'd "marry, shag and kill" from group of friends Larry Wilmore, John Oliver and Stephen Colbert.
Stewart answers that riveting query during a segment called "Askhole," wherein Daily Show correspondents Hasan Minhaj and Jordan Klepper interrogate the host with fan questions and bully their boss like grizzled detectives. "Some things are best left unsaid," Stewart says of his shagging options. But he relents after they threaten him with an Arby's enema. »
Back in May, a report surfaced that Mission: Impossible 6 is already in development, which came two months before the latest installment of this lucrative franchise, Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation hits theaters. With the release now just a few days away, Tom Cruise appeared on Comedy Central's The Daily Show, where he told host Jon Stewart that work has already begun on Mission: Impossible 6, with production set to begin next summer. Here's what the action star had to say during his appearance on the talk show.
"We're starting to work on [Mission: Impossible 6] now. We'll probably start shooting it next summer [in 2016]."
The news that Mission: Impossible 6 is already moving forward isn't terribly surprising at all. Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation is expected to take in between $50 million and $60 million at the box office when it opens in theaters this weekend. However, if production does in fact start next year, it would be fairly surprising, »
Exiting The Daily Show host Jon Stewart made a surprise appearance on Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show to address a report about his having visited the White House. The pretense of last night’s appearance was that Stewart is now Nightly Show’s Senior Don't Give A Shit Any More Correspondent – his “exiting the job before it’s done” status making him the ideal faux journalist to cover Obama Unleashed, as some actual journalists have described Obama’s behavior as he enters… »
A franchise famous for its leisurely pacing between entries is not letting its recent resurgence of vitality go to waste.
With the fourth film "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" becoming a massive worldwide box-office success in 2011, and this week's "Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation" not only garnering rave reviews but expected to score the series' biggest opening to date, it comes as little surprise that Paramount wants to move forward fast.
Appearing on The Daily Show last night, Cruise revealed to host Jon Stewart that work has already begun on the next entry in the series with production aiming to begin next Summer: "We're starting to work on [Mission: Impossible 6] now. We'll probably start shooting it next summer [in 2016]."
