Mission: Impossible 6 Pre-Production Halted Due To Pay Dispute

21 August 2016 3:09 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With the franchise earning a lifetime gross of over $2 billion, $682 Million of that coming from Rogue Nation, you’d think everything would be coming up roses for the Mission: Impossible series. But according to a report from Deadline, London set pre-production on Mission: Impossible 6, which sees the 5th instalment’s Christopher McQuarrie once again at the helm, has been halted. The reason: salary. There’s actually two conflicting reports, with one saying Paramount Pictures is looking for Tom Cruise and other producers, including Skydance and Bad Robot, to trim their fees. The other scenario sees Cruise wanting Paramount to match the pay rise he received from Universal while the studio wants to pay him the same amount (which is already eight figures) he got for the last film. So all prep work on the film, set for a late 2017 release date, has been halted till every party involved can find a common ground. »

Pre-production halted on Mission: Impossible 6 due to contractual disputes

20 August 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Deadline, Paramount Pictures has halted early pre-production on M:i 6 Mission Impossible due to contractual disputes.

The site suggests two possible reasons for the dispute: that Paramount wants Cruise and the rest of the film’s producers from Bad Robot and Skydance to trim their fees, or that Cruise is looking to exceed his pay packet for The Mummy, while the studio wants to pay him what he received for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. However, it is expected that an agreement will be reached in time for the planned January start date.

The sixth instalment in the blockbuster franchise will reunite Cruise with Rogue Nation helmer Christopher McQuarrie and co-star Rebecca Ferguson, marking the first occasion in the series where the director and leading lady have returned for a second outing. As yet, there’s no word on a release date, but it is expected next year.

Mission: Impossible 6 Prep Halted As Paramount Looks To Sort Deals With Tom Cruise And More

19 August 2016 6:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The success of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation meant that Paramount Picture didn’t hesitate to confirm that Mission: Impossible 6 is in the works, but Deadline reports that pre-production has now been halted as the studio looks to sort out salary issues with Tom Cruise and some of the movie’s other producers.

As many as twenty people have been working on the movie in London after writer and director Christopher McQuarrie laid out Mission: Impossible 6‘s main beats alongside Cruise, while the former has already started penning the screenplay. Those hired had already started early work on visual effects before being told to stop work.

The trade mentions that Paramount is hoping Cruise and some of the movie’s other producers will trim their fees, though they’ve also heard that the actor is hoping for a raise rather than the same amount he made for the previous instalment. »

Mission: Impossible 6 Delayed Over Tom Cruise Salary Dispute?

19 August 2016 2:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last July, just before the blockbuster Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation hit theaters, a report surfaced that production on Mission: Impossible 6 was set to begin sometime in the summer of 2016, with Paramount Pictures moving ahead rather quickly on the action sequel. Since then, we have heard that Roue Nation director Christopher McQuarrie will return, the first time in franchise history the same director made two movies in a row, and Rebecca Ferguson will also reprise her role as Ilsa Faust from Rogue Nation, but we haven't heard any updates since December. Today we have word that pre-production has been halted, which could be because star/producer Tom Cruise is engaged in a contract dispute with Paramount Pictures.

Deadline reports that Paramount has hired between 15 and 20 people to do "soft prep work" for Mission: Impossible 6, including the early design of the visual effects. Tom Cruise and writer-director Christopher McQuarrie had »

Prep Work On Mission: Impossible 6 Halted Until Salary Negotiations Are Complete

19 August 2016 1:56 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Somehow, Mission: Impossible is one of those few series that gets better with each new entry. After the utterly humorless Mission: Impossible III, the series took a more lighthearted turn with Brad Bird's live-action debut, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. That trend continued in last year's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, which was directed by Jack Reacher director, Christopher McQuarrie.

Reception for Rogue Nation was universally praised by fans and critics alike, and Paramount Pictures seemed to take that as a hint that they should capitalize on its success by beginning production on the next film in the franchise as soon as humanly possible with the same director attached -- which is a series first. The film was set to begin production this fall, but now a report from Deadline seems to indicate that the next Mission: Impossible film may be facing its first obstacle.

19 August 2016 8:23 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Almost Holy (Steve Hoover)

The most fascinating part of Steve Hoover‘s latest documentary Almost Holy is how its subject Gennadiy Mokhnenko parallels the life of well-known Russian cartoon Krokodil Gena. The latter deals with a lonely crocodile zoo worker named Gena and his friend Cheburashka: a young, abandoned creature rejected by the establishment employing him. The two therefore construct a home for the lonely as »

Tom Cruise And Cobie Smulders Buddy Up In International Poster For Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

19 August 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Emerging under the shadow of Paramount’s flagship action series Mission: Impossible, few would have predicted that Jack Reacher, a live-action adaptation that found Tom Cruise in the mighty shoes of the former major, would score $218 million at the worldwide box office with sound reviews to boot.

It may have lost director writer-director Christopher McQuarrie – snapped up by the Mission: Impossible franchise, incidentally – but Skydance is barrelling down on the release of Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, which welcomes series newcomer Cobie Smulders to the fray.

There, she’ll be rubbing shoulders with Cruise, Robert Catrini, Danika Yarosh, Aldis Hodge, Patrick Heusinger, Holt McCallany and Austin Hebert, and today’s action-packed international poster tees up that core action duo of Cruise and Smulders. What really has us excited for Never Go Back is that, in a bid to ensure the follow-up remains faithful to Lee Child’s novel series, the »
