Cue the “your mission should you choose to accept it” puns! After the incredible success enjoyed by 2011’s Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, the next mission for Ethan Hunt and the gang was all but locked in. The fourth film proved to be the best film of the franchise (how often can you say that?) and left many eager to see more eye-popping set pieces and fast paced action. Well look out for Tom Cruise scaling your local landmark in the 2015 festive season with today’s big news. Yes, Mission: Impossible 5 will be adding another bow to an already gift-wrapped 2015 release schedule. More specifically, the film is now officially logged in for a December 25th 2015 release.
That is a ballsy move considering J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars Episode VII opens only one-week prior, although Abrams is also a part of the M:I franchise, so the spectacled director certainly will be celebrating his Christmas in style! Casting (Tom Cruise aside) and story details may be unconfirmed but Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) will be at the helm of this fifth instalment in the gadget-filled franchise, and Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) will be on writing duties. Lets hope this mission is just as accomplished as the last, as 2015 continues to get bigger and bigger.
