The Mission Impossible franchise is one of the most successful and entertaining action franchises in Hollywood. Tom Cruise was always a great actor, but Mission Impossible series turned him into a megastar. He is famous for performing daring stunts without a stunt double. With each passing movie, he has raised the stakes, in MI 4: Ghost Protocol, he climbed the world’s tallest skyscraper Burj Khalifa in Dubai, while in Rogue Nation he was literally dangling outside an actual plane. David Ellison (the producer) recently revealed that the upcoming MI movie will feature the biggest stunt of Tom Cruise.
At CinemaCon, Paramount made it clear that they would film Mission Impossible-6 in IMAX for enhanced experience of the cinemagoers. Jeff Sneider has confirmed a series of locations – London, India, Paris, Newzealand. The cast has finished their Newzealand shoot and Tom Cruise had this to say:
“Thank you to the amazing people of New Zealand! I’ve had a great time filming the next Mission: Impossible here.”
Recently, the director of MI 6 Christopher Macquarie made the announcement on his Instagram account that Henry Cavill (who played Superman/ Man of Steel) has agreed to be part of the next movie in the MI franchise.
He will be the right-hand man of IMF’s head played by Alec Baldwin. He will also fill in the void left by Jeremy Reiner who played Brandt in MI: 4 and MI: 5.
Rebecca Ferguson’s character Ilsa Faust who was also part of MI 5: Rogue Nation, will reprise her character in MI: 6. The team includes Luther Stickle (Ving Rhames) and Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg) who will help Ethan Hunt in executing the mission. The biggest surprise for the fans is the arrival of Michelle Monaghan who married Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) in MI: 3, had a surprise cameo in MI: 5 and now returning for MI: 6.
The tentative release date set by Paramount is July 27, 2018.
