The panic is finally over for Mission Impossible fans everywhere. Fans were more than a little worried that the new movie Mission Impossible 6 may never actually happen due to on-set set backs. Have no fear–the movie is back on track.
There was a tremendous fear amongst fans that the franchise will end with the fifth Mission Impossible film. The concern surfaced after a salary dispute involving lead actor Tom Cruise. Playing IMF agent Ethan Hunt, Cruise is a crucial character to the Mission Impossible film series. Without him the movie would face a steep hurdle considering he has been the main star since the franchise’s theatrical inception.
The Hollywood Reporter stated Cruise is “looking to match or exceed what he is getting paid by Universal for starring in The Mummy.” However fans will be pleased to know the problems have been resolved. The confirmation of this news comes once again from a recent report by The Hollywood Reporter.
One drawback to keep in mind: filming will now start at a later date. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mission Impossible 6 will now delay filming until 2017. This late production date will more than likely push the movie backwards to a 2018 release.
Details 6 are scant at the moment, but Variety reported back in April that Cruise left hints on what fans could expect. The website quotes Cruise as saying that the sixth Mission Impossible will have “more incredible set pieces, stunts…and…a very entertaining and compelling story.”
All we can do is sit and wait for the movie news to role in as production takes place. Stay tuned at Gravis Ludus for updates on Mission Impossible 6 and other upcoming movie and TV news.
