A "very trusted source" for the Schmoes report that Paramount are looking to sign Jessica Chastain
for a lead role next to Tom Cruise
in the still untitled fifth Mission Impossible movie. Details on this role are sparse, but the site also say that should she accept, she'll play "Tom Cruise
’s right hand woman". That sounds more like a fellow agent than another love interest, but who knows. We'll have to treat this as a rumor for now, but expect one of the trades to stick their oar in sooner rather than later. Iron Man 3
writer Drew Pearce
will pen the screenplay for the movie, with Jack Reacher
director Christopher McQuarrie
at the helm.
