This won't come as much of a surprise considering the previous instalment Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol pulled in almost $700 million at the global box office (a record for the star), but Deadline has revealed that actor Tom Cruise has signed on to reprise the role of super spy Ethan Hunt for a fifth entry in the Mission: Impossible series.
In addition to starring, The Cruiser will once again serve as producer on Mission: Impossible 5, and while no official announcement has been made about a director, it's thought that Cruise could reunite with Jack Reacher helmer Christopher McQuarrie, the Academy Award-winning screenwriter behind The Usual Suspects and the upcoming X-Men solo sequel The Wolverine.

We sat down with the two filmmakers along with cast members Rotem Keinan, Tzahi Grad, and Doval’e Glickman to talk about the film, influences, and future projects. Despite the dark and twisted (but deliciously fun) content of the film, we had an absolute blast.
Be sure to check out our review of the film here.
So I saw the film yesterday and everybody in the theater, myself included, loved it.
Ak: Wow, that’s great! Thank you.
So let me start by asking how the idea for Big Bad Wolves came to pass.
Np: Well we wanted to make a film about a pedophile, eh, suspected pedophile, from his point of view. The audience doesn’t know if he did or didn’t »

In what won't come as a surprise to anyone, Tom Cruise has signed on to produce and star in Mission: Impossible 5 (or, as we'll be calling it, Mission: Impossible – Cinco de Mayhem). "Both Paramount and Skydance have confirmed this, but they are not saying who’s writing and directing, or when they are targeting release," Deadline reports. Christopher McQuarrie — screenwriter behind The Usual Suspects and Cruise's Valkyrie; director of Cruise's Jack Reacher — has been rumored as the director since late last year. That said, McQuarrie just signed on to write and direct a remake of Ice Station Zebra, so who knows. »

What do Left Behind, Little Nicky, Mister Frost, and Hellboy all have in common? They all feature the devil in either a starring or cameo role. Satan or Lucifer has long been a fascinating figure ever since John Milton’s Paradise Lost immortalized him. Not surprising in a bit of homage Al Pacino as Satan in The Devil’s Advocate call himself “John Milton.” But treatments of the devil have varied greatly. In The Devil Rides Out (1968), Christopher Lee faces off against a Satan cult but Satan himself only appears for a few brief moments.
Tim Curry’s devil in Legend, on the other hand, takes center stage in perhaps the wildest interpretation yet with his devil sporting huge cloven hooves and horns. But in the 1990s, the devil became more and more cynical and laid back. Gabriel Byrne in the End of Days plays him as a normal man »
