Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie back for two more Mission: Impossible movies

January 15th, 2019 by Marc Comments

There’s no denying that Mission: Impossible Fallout last summer was the best of the franchise so far, and the reception both critically and with fans, as well as the money it made all agreed.

So naturally we are getting a sequel.

The movie itself, like the one before, Rogue Nation, was written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie and they both were one big story and even had some clever throwbacks to other movies in the franchise.

And now McQuarrie and star Tom Cruise have confirmed that they are both coming back for not just one, but two sequels!

McQuarrie will write and direct both movies and they will be shot back-to-back with their releases being summer 2021 and summer 2022. McQuarrie will write them while Cruise finishes filming the Top Gun sequel, Top Gun: Maverick.

This is very exciting news because the M:I franchise is one that gets better with each instalment – well, maybe not II, and McQuarrie reached the top with his last two instalments, so the idea of an over-arching four-part story has us pretty excited.

Yes, we choose to accept.

Do you?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
