Director McQuarrie back for sixth Mission: Impossible

Mission: Impossible director Christopher McQuarrie has revealed he will return for a sixth instalment of the hit film series.

The film-maker will again link up with Tom Cruise following the success of the fifth movie Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation earlier this year.

The pair have also worked together on previous projects including Jack Reacher, written and directed by McQuarrie, while the Oscar-winning writer produced screenplays for Cruise films Valkyrie and Edge of Tomorrow.

The Usual Suspects writer tweeted: "Mission: Accepted #MI6".

And Skydance Productions said: "Christopher McQuarrie confirmed recently via Twitter that he will be returning for Mission: Impossible 6."

According to the film is set for release in 2017.

Cruise will reprise the role of spy Ethan Hunt after an all-action display in the latest film.

The 53-year-old Hollywood A-lister is known for performing his own stunts, which he said he prepares for with years of practice.

At the Rogue Nation premiere in London in July, he said: "I have trained my whole life, constantly, whether it's drama or action.

"I don't sleep much and I love what I do so I'm working many long hours. I usually will break the film down in sequences - I work with the stunt team to train and train.

"I've been doing it for so long, and I never take anything for granted. When we come up with things, there's so many on every film I can't include them all."

Cruise added: "I want something that's cinematic, that's character and story - for me, story is king. We have to find ways of putting the audience inside that character. You want those shots but it has to be the right tone - something exhilarating and spine tingling."
