Look out Mission Impossible fans, a fifth movie is coming your way.
Deadline have confirmed today that 50-year-old A-lister Tom Cruise will reprise his role as the super-spy Ethan Hunt in a fourth sequel for Paramount and Skydance Pictures, which the Cruiser will once again also produce. No official release date has been confirmed yet, though a late 2014 or early 2015 release seems likely. Plot details are being kept under-wraps as of now as are other potential returning characters.
No writer or director is being officially spoken of yet but Deadline suggest Jack Reacher’s Christopher McQuarrie is favourite to land the gig, which would seem a good bet. McQuarrie also wrote Valkyrie for Cruise and Bryan Singer in 2008 and recently was being setup to scribe a decades-later Top Gun sequel for Cruise before director Tony Scott’s passing.
It is likely that Mission: Impossible 5 will be set straight after »

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. »

Tom Cruise has finalized a deal to star in and produce Mission: Impossible 5 for Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions. The actor will reprise his role as Ethan Hunt from Mission: Impossible (1996), Mission: Impossible 2 (2000), Mission: Impossible III (2006), and Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (2011).
Christopher McQuarrie has been mentioned to direct this fifth installment in the action franchise, but no deal has been finalized yet. We reported in November that Tom Cruise hoped to reunite with Christopher McQuarrie on this project, after working together on last year's Jack Reacher. Christopher McQuarrie wrote the script for Tom Cruise's 2008 World War II drama Valkyrie, and the writer-director also provided uncredited screenplay polishes on All You Need Is Kill and Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol.
Paramount will co-finance the project with David Ellison's Skydance Productions. Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol was produced on a $145 million budget, and it went on to make nearly $700 million worldwide. »
The brightest, shiniest star in Hollywood, Tom Cruise, has signed on to star in Mission: Impossible 5. The news has been confirmed by Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions, who were both behind the last instalment. As yet, no director or writer has been revealed – but Deadline has it on good authority that the guy for the director’s chair is none other than Christopher McQuarrie.
Who’s that, you might ask? McQuarrie was the director behind the newly-spawned Jack Reacher franchise. No stranger to the Cruise, he’s collaborated with him on three previous projects. Valkyrie, Jack Reacher and the upcoming sci-fi flick All You Need Is Kill. The will-it-won’t-it-happen Top Gun 2 may further extend their partnership.
Whoever lands the gig will be working under the umbrella of Jj Abrams’ Bad Robot production house. Abrams, who directed Mission: Impossible 3, remained onboard the franchise for the fourth instalment. »

Last year's Tom Cruise actioner “Jack Reacher” held a trifecta of curious elements: The controversial casting of its star, Werner Herzog's brief villainous turn, and, most importantly, the return of Christopher McQuarrie to the director's chair. After helming “The Way Of The Gun” in 2000, McQuarrie shunned the spotlight to serve as script doctor to Hollywood's elite, but after his latest film experience, he's re-emerged to comment on his career in his typically candid manner. In an extensive interview with Empire promoting the “Jack Reacher” DVD release, McQuarrie spoke on a wide variety of topics, from Oren Peli's creative freedom with “Paranormal Activity,” to contrasting it with struggles to get his unproduced screenplays “Booth” and “The Last Mission” made in the Hollywood system (both are movies “I have to ask permission” to make). Indeed, the industry has been a mixed blessing for the director -- McQuarrie learned while making “Valkyrie” with Cruise. »

If this weekend’s box office is any indication, the couch jumping stigma that has plagued Tom Cruise’s career for the better part of the last decade may finally be thing of the past.
Cruise’s latest, the $120 million sci-fi adventure Oblivion, opened to a solid $38.2 million this weekend. That’s a terrific start for the chiseled star, who has struggled recently at the box office with under-performers like Jack Reacher, Rock of Ages, Valkyrie, and Knight and Day. In fact, only four Cruise vehicles have ever opened higher — and three of them are Mission Impossible movies. (The other »

Even before Tom Cruise's "Oblivion" opened in North America on Thursday night, the 50-year-old must have been grinning his famous grin. Before the movie had sold a single ticket here, it was a surefire hit. In his native land, Cruise takes a lot of ribbing, whether for his headline-generating personal life (especially since 2005, the year of the couch-jump) or for the seeming shrinkage of his star-power (again, especially since 2005). The estimated $38.2 million "Oblivion" earned this weekend marked his biggest domestic opening since "Mission: Impossible III" seven years ago. Some will call it a comeback, others will call it a fluke or last hurrah from a middle-aged action hero desperately trying to hold on to his relevance in an industry that relentlessly moves on to the next big (young) thing. But the truth is, Cruise has been a remarkably consistent box office winner, even since he started raising eyebrows eight »

Kosinski's Mind-boggling Sci-Fier to Boast Cruise's Biggest Domestic Box-Office Debut Weekend Since 2006?: Tom Cruise is no longer the superstar he used to be -- well, in case you believe the United States and Canada represent the whole world. (More information on Cruise's international b.o. allure further down.) Since J.J. Abrams' thriller Mission: Impossible III back in '06, only one Cruise movie in wide release has opened with more than $25 million at the North American box office: Brad Bird's fourquel Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, which brought in $29.55 million on its second weekend (and first in wide release) on Christmas weekend 2011. This weekend (April 19-21), Cruise returns to American and Canadian screens with Joseph Kosinski's "original" sci-fier Oblivion; initial (Friday) results have surpassed studio predictions and, for that matter, the predictions of most pundits. (Pictured above: Cruise in the box-office hit sci-fier Oblivion.) As per estimates »

Tom Cruise could really use a box office hit right about now and "Oblivion" might be the film to do the trick. Already a success overseas, the sci-fi mindbender opens in the U.S. just two weeks ahead of the official summer movie season's launch with "Iron Man 3."
It's not just Cruise who could use a hit after a string of recent disappointments, but also the entire movie industry. So far the year has produced only three real hits ("Oz," "The Croods" and "Identity Thief") and a few modest overachievers ("Olympus Has Fallen," "Mama," "Safe Haven"), to say nothing of the even more troubling dearth of movies that are actually, you know, good.
The quick take on "Oblivion" is "great visuals, not-so-great story," but it's worth saying a little more about this ambitious piece of sci-fi filmmaking from director Joseph Kosinski ("Tron: Legacy").

Nicholas Hoult (Warm Bodies) stars as Jack, a young farmhand who accideentally opens a gateway between our world and the world of a fearsome race of giants. Once they’re unleashed, the giants try to take back the land they lost. To save the kingdom, its people and get the love of a brave princess (Eleanor Tomlinson, Alice in Wonderland), Jack comes face to face with the warriors he thought only existed in legend.
Singer again partnered with scripter Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher), who also wrote Singer’s Valkyrie and The Usual Suspects. But Jack’s screenplay was also thanks to (Shrek Forever After) Darren Lemke and TV writer Dan Studney, with his first feature film. »
Greetings from the apocalypse! You might think that this particular Mad Max would enjoy watching Tom Cruise fight evil robots in a future nuclear-blasted wasteland, but Nope! "Oblivion" is a dud, though that doesn't mean we can't make it through the next few days as long as we stick together and don't cross the Dmz. Smoke 'em if ya got 'em, troops, we're goin' in …

Pow! In Theaters
Xenu's own Tom Cruise returns to comfortable sci-fi territory this week with "Oblivion," which I will henceforth refer to as "The Matrix Redressed." Cruise is the only living boy in post-apocalyptic New York, where he and a stuffy British chick (Andrea Riseborough, natch) maintain giant water vacuums when they're not having PG-13 swimming pool sex … that is, until the mysterious Olga Kurylenko arrives from outer space. »

As the Summer movie season quickly approaches, the studios are only releasing one brand-new movie*Tom Cruise sci-fi adventure Oblivion*in to theaters nationwide this weekend. While strong word-of-mouth will keep 42 in play, Oblivion has enough going for it that it should open on top with at least $30 million, which will be the highest opening weekend in April 2013.At the beginning of the new century, Tom Cruise was arguably the biggest movie star in the U.S.: from Mission: Impossible II in 2000 to Mission: Impossible III in 2006, Cruise starred in seven-straight movies that earned at least $100 million at the domestic box office. Towards the end of that run, though, Cruise's public image took a hit due to some of his more eccentric behavior and his strong association with the controversial Church of Scientology. Since 2006, Cruise has only had a single $100 million domestic earner, which was the fourth Mission: Impossible »
