Mission Accepted: Chris McQuarrie to helm Mission Impossible 5

August 6th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments


Earlier in the year we reported that Tom Cruise was a go for Mission Impossible 5.

Today Paramount and Skydance Productions confirmed that Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) will direct the next installment of their Mission: Impossible franchise. McQuarrie tweeted “Mission Accepted”,  and his Jack Reacher star Tom Cruise tweeted out as well.

Paramount Film Group President Adam Goodman has this to say of the news:

“The Mission series is special for its signature directors; Chris McQuarrie keeps this tradition thriving.”

What do you guys think of the news?
