Its has been confirmed by Paramount pictures and Skydance productions that Tom Cruise has signed up to reprise the role of Ethan Hunt in the fifth Mission:Impossible. Not really much of a surprise as Paramount have been talking this up since the release of Ghost Protocol which grossed over $700 million worldwide.
With Cruise on board and JJ Abrams Bad Robot company involved for a third time this already looks promising. Expect a further announcement in the near future regarding the writer and director for the project.
