UPDATED: So who is writing MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5!?!?
Hey Yo! Draven here.
UPDATE: THR is also reporting that Christopher McQuarrie is still in discussions with Paramount to direct M:I5. I have been hearing that these discussion are revolving around how much creative freedom McQuarrie will have. Hopefully we will have something solid soon. Original story follows below:
It sounds like we are starting to get some solid movement on the next installment in the MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE franchise. THR is reporting that IRON MAN 3 and PACIFIC RIM writer, Drew Pearce, has been hired to draft MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5.
I don't know how good this news really is though as I loved IRON MAN 3 and have heard nothing but great things about the PACIFIC RIM script but I am not sure how much Pearce had to do with either one. IRON MAN 3 really did feel like a Shane Black scripted film, through and through and Travis Beacham was the main guy responsible for the intial buzz on the PACIFIC RIM story (or so I am told).
What this means for Christopher McQuarrie's rumored involvement with this project is unknown as of yet, but I don't think this is good news if you were rooting for him to accept MI:5. McQuarrie tweeted that he was offered it back in February and we haven't heard anything since then and it was just announced that he was developing ICE STATION ZEBRA as his next film. There is also no word yet on any cast that will be returning for M:I5 or who will be directing but I am sure we will hear soon.
So what do you guys think of this news? Are you excited for MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5? Should Jeremy Renner return? Who do you want to direct this? Let me know below and don't forget to follow me on Twitter!
