Cruise signs on for fifth MI film

Tom Cruise has made four Mission Impossible films

Tom Cruise has officially accepted a fifth Mission Impossible, according to reports.

The Hollywood star has signed a deal to star in and produce Mission: Impossible 5, where he will reprise his role as spy Ethan Hunt, reported Deadline.

Tom could be reunited with his Jack Reacher writer-director Christopher McQuarrie, who is thought to be in line to take the reins for the fifth instalment for Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions, although nothing is confirmed yet.

JJ Abrams' production company Bad Robot will produce the movie.

The Star Trek Into Darkness film-maker made his film directorial debut on Mission: Impossible III, with Brad Bird making his live-action directing debut on the fourth film, Ghost Protocol.

Tom - who recently starred in sci-fi adventure Oblivion - has a number of projects on the go, including a Jack Reacher sequel. He's also attached to Guy Ritchie's big-screen adaptation of spy series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and sci-fi drama Yukikaze.

In the past, you followed conventional wisdom, only to regret your choice. Don't make this mistake now, when there is an important career matter before you. Accepting a glamorous job is tempting, but you'd prefer a position that is more edgy and demanding. An unpredictable job is calling your name; grab it.More
