Movie News: MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5 Gets a New Writer

With MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5 having been in some form of development for a while now, it appears that the sequel to GHOST PROTOCOL has undergone yet another change of writer.

Initially, IRON MAN 3’s Drew Pearce penned a script for JACK REACHER’s Christopher McQuarrie to direct. Pearce has now left the project, with writer Will Staples brought in to replace him. Best known for his work in video games, in what may prove to give some indication on the way MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5 may go, Staples best work was probably on CALL OF DUTY: MODERN WARFARE 3 and NEED FOR SPEED: RIVALS. McQuarrie is said to still be on board to direct.

At this stage, we’re still in the dark on any further details on this next outing for Ethan Hunt, but expect more as it becomes available.
