Nothing like getting the gang back together after a successful entry. That seems to be the case for the Mission: Impossible franchise, and that includes doing something they’ve never done before.
Variety reports Christopher McQuarrie, who wrote and directed this year’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, is in talks to return in both capacities for the sixth entry. If McQuarrie agrees, he would be the first director in the franchise to return for a second entry.
On top of bringing McQuarrie back, Variety adds that stand-out Rebecca Ferguson could also be coming back for the next movie after the studio signed her for an option. Paramount is looking to turn around the next Mi film after Rogue Nation was such a runaway hit.

Get ready for muscles, boobs, and sharks! According to the Rock’s Instagram, he’s damn good at lip-syncing “All I Want For Christmas Is You” while driving. But more importantly (and more relevant to this post, some might argue), he also reports that Alexandra Daddario is joining the cast of Seth Gordon’s new Baywatch movie, alongside Dwayne himself and fellow Baywatch-y style smooth-bodied (I'm guessing) hunk Zac Efron. The Rock previously worked with Daddario in the movie San Andreas, where she played his daughter, so hopefully he won’t feel too icky seeing her boobs move around in slow-mo. And vice versa. »
