After scripting the biggest hit of 2013, "Iron Man 3," it's no surprise that screenwriter Drew Pearce has moved on to a similarly big project. It's being reported that Pearce has signed on to pen the screenplay for the upcoming "Mission: Impossible" sequel "Mi5."
The Hollywood Reporter has the news, confirming that Paramount Pictures has hired Pearce to write the script. Tom Cruise is expected to both produce and star in the film once he's done with his next feature, "The Man From U.N.C.L.E."
By the time Cruise is done with Guy Ritchie's "U.N.C.L.E.," "Mi5" should be ready for a fall filming start date. Story details of the next "Mission: Impossible" movie are being kept a secret, and it's unclear of Jeremy Renner will be reprising his role as William Brandt. Christopher McQuarrie is still in discussions to the direct the film, though he hasn't been locked down yet. »

Iron Man 3 screenwriter Drew Pearce has been hired to write Mission: Impossible 5 for Tom Cruise and Paramount Pictures. Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie is still in discussions with the studio to direct the film. Crusie is also producing the movie alongside J.J. Abrams who, as you know, recently dedicated himself to developing Star Wars: Episode VII for Disney and Lucasfilm. Pearce also wrote Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim and is penning the third Sherlock Holmes film.
There are no plot deals for the fifth installment of this franchise yet, but I'm sure they've got something pretty cool up their sleeve. I really enjoyed the last one directed by Brad Bird, but I think the first one, directed by Brian De Palma, is still the best.
What's you're favorite Mission: Impossible film so far? Where would you like to see the story go in the fifth movie?

I seem to be getting mixed messages from people when they talk Iron Man 3. I was mezzo mezzo on it and I got the impression everyone loved it way more than me, but then it seems I'm reading a bunch of complaints. Is this just a response to its overwhelming box-office success or am I only focusing on the negative and not seeing the equally positive responses? Either way, the film is a hit as it will cross the $1 billion mark worldwide over the course of the next few days and now one of its screenwriters, Drew Pearce (pictured left), has just accepted a new mission, Mission: Impossible 5. THR reports Pearce will pen the screenplay which will once again feature Tom Cruise in the lead role as Ethan Hunt with Cruise's Jack Reacher director, Christopher McQuarrie (pictured right), in negotiations to direct. Expectation is for the film to »

Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol brought in $700 million worldwide. The entire franchise has earned over $2 billion dollars in it's history. Production will begin after Tom Cruise wraps up The Man from U.N.C.L.E. this fall.
THR report that Christopher McQuarrie is also in talks to direct, and that production is expected to get underway later this year.
Tom Cruise officially boarded the project earlier in the month, signing on to both star in and produce the blockbuster sequel, which will mark the return of the franchise following 2011’s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.
Ghost Protocol was the franchise’s most successful film to date, netting just shy of $700m. around the world, and bringing the franchise’s total box office takings north of the $2bn. mark. And with Pearce now set to write the script for Mission: Impossible 5, the future is definitely looking bright for the series’ continuation.

Your mission, Pearce, should you choose to accept is to inject a degree of vitality into Mission: Impossible 5 in the manner of your screenplay workings with Iron Man 3. Well, maybe that’s not quite how the phone call went, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, Drew Pearce has landed the job of penning the fifth instalment in Tom Cruise’s mega franchise.
Though Mission Impossible 5 was confirmed shortly after Brad Bird’s mid-franchise reboot – namely Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol – in 2011, it was only last week that the production became official and Tom Cruise signed the dotted line to reprise his role as globe-trotting Imf (Impossible Mission Forces) agent, Ethan Hunt. And now, with Drew Pearce firmly behind the creative wheel, news confirming the film’s director shouldn’t be too far away – mind you, Christopher McQuarrie seems to have his nose in front.
Plot details are on a strict need-to-know basis right now, »

Earlier this month, it was revealed that Paramount Pictures was moving forward with "Mission: Impossible 5" and that Tom Cruise signed on to reprise his Ethan Hunt role. Now comes word that the studio just hired "Iron Man 3" co-writer Drew Pearce to write the script for the fifth "Mission: Impossible" installment. Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) is in talks to direct. "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" hit theaters in 2011 and went on to gross almost $700 million worldwide, which is much higher than all other installments in the franchise. It also has an impressive 93% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. »
When your latest film posts the second highest opening weekend in Us box office history, you can expect some Hollywood doors to open, as is fast proving the case with British screenwriter Drew Pearce. Having co-written Iron Man 3's whip-smart script alongside Shane Black (we can only imagine the Croydon reference came from Pearce), Pearce has now been hired by Paramount to take on another mega-franchise in the form of Mission: Impossible 5. Tom Cruise was recently confirmed to have signed on for the fourth sequel in the long-running...

Still no confirmation on Christopher McQuarrie directing Mission: Impossible 5, but Drew Pearce has come aboard as to tackle the screenplay. In addition to penning the mega-grossing Iron Man 3, Pearce wrote Guillermo del Toro's upcoming Pacific Rim and will be the writer on the eventual Sherlock Holmes threequel. Not much is known about M:i 5 except that Tom Cruise is coming back and that we hope they stick with the Ghost Protocol subtitle system and call it Cinco de Mayhem. Just seems right. »

British screenwriter Drew Pearce, unsurprisingly, is finding that his stock is firmly on the rise. Having created the TV show No Heroics, you'll find Pearce's pawprints on Iron Man 3 this summer, with Pacific Rim still to come (although we don't think he's getting a credit on that one). He's also mooted to pen Sherlock Holmes 3 for Warner Bros.
However, he's landed a further high profile job now. The Hollywood Reporter has broken the news that Paramount Pictures has now hired Pearce to write a screenplay for the upcoming Mission: Impossible 5. The film, which has Tom Cruise confirmed to star and produce, and with Christopher McQuarrie still rumoured to direct, is a priority for Paramount. The plan is therefore to try and »
After co-writing what has been the biggest movie of the year so far with Marvel's Iron Man 3, screenwriter Drew Pearce is staying in the business of blockbuster sequels at Paramount Pictures. THR has word that Pearce has been hired to script Mission: Impossible 5, which just confirmed Tom Cruise to return in the lead role as agent Ethan Hunt, reteaming with his Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie for the next sequel. J.J. Abrams is producing once again through his Bad Robot banner along with David Ellison's Skydance Productions, who co-financed and executive produced the 2011 sequel Ghost Protocol. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but if there's one writer who can keep this series fresh after the last two impressive sequels, it's Pearce. His work on Iron Man 3 was clearly a home run, and there's not much to complain about with Marvel's sequel. It stayed true to the character of Tony Stark, »

While everyone associates Bad Robot with J.J. Abrams, he actually has a producing partner that rarely does press and usually stays out of the limelight: Bryan Burk. If you look over his IMDb profile, you'll see he's tremendously involved in all Bad Robot productions and was a key component in both Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness. With the movie getting ready to premiere around the world, I recently landed an exclusive interview with the busy producer. During our wide-ranging interview, we talked about making the sequel, the editing process, the secrecy, the title, if we'll get Star Trek 3 in less than four years, whether a new Star Trek TV show could happen in the near future, and more. We also talked about other Bad Robot productions like Star Wars, Mission: Impossible 5, Infinitely Polar Bear, Person of Interest, Revolution, Alfonso Cuaron's pilot Believe, Karl Urban's pilot Almost Human, »

Drew Pearce's latest screenwriting effort, Iron Man 3, was a little box office darling you may have heard of. Though Pearce co-wrote the Marvel movie with director Shane Black, it looks like Pearce alone will get the first crack at Paramount's new Mission: Impossible film. It was recently reported that franchise star Tom Cruise is officially attached to produce and star in Mission: Impossible 5. Production on the film is is expected to start in the fall after Cruise wraps filming on Warner Bros.' The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Plot details are being kept quiet, per THR, and the search for a director is currently underway. Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) is reportedly in talks, but recently signed on to write and direct a remake of Ice Station Zebra. »

The high-profile writing gigs keep coming for Iron Man 3’s co-scribbler Drew Pearce, and we couldn’t be happier. Having proved more than capable of bringing something fresh to the blockbuster format with Tony Stark’s successful latest outing, Pearce has now landed the job of making Tom Cruise do crazy things for Mission: Impossible 5. It was just last week that the latest Mission movie became 100% official, though it’s been in development ever since Ghost Protocol became a box office hit. With Pearce on board, the pieces should start falling into place, particularly the name of the director. Christopher McQuarrie, who has been consulting on the film with Cruise, remains the bookie’s favourite, but it remains to be seen if he sits in the chair.As for the plot? That’s anyone’s guess for now, but expect Cruise climbing things, threats to the safety of the world, »

Audiences expecting to return to the swords-and-sandals-and-cgi ancient Greece of 300 this summer will have to wait until next March. Warner Bros. has pushed the release date of sequel/side-quel 300: Rise of an Empire from Aug. 2, 2013 to March 7, 2014.
That move also bumps another WB action project, Tom Cruise-starrer All You Need Is Kill, from March 7, 2014 to the prominent summer U.S. release date of June 6, 2014. The time loop war movie is taking a page from the book of films like Iron Man 3 and Cruise’s own Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol with the plan to open in select international »
