Cruise is back with a ‘thrilling’ Mis­sion

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

HOL­LY­WOOD star Tom Cruise says the next in­stal­ment of the Mis­sion: Im­pos­si­ble fran­chise will be “re­ally wild”.

The 54-year-old Hol­ly­wood star is repris­ing the role of Ethan Hunt in the sixth in­stal­ment of the fran­chise and the ac­tor has re­vealed they have al­ready started shoot­ing some scenes in Paris.

Speak­ing on The Gra­ham Nor­ton Show, he said: “It is re­ally crazy. We’ve shot some of the stuff in Paris al­ready and it is go­ing to be re­ally wild and thrilling for the au­di­ence.

“There is al­ways an­other moun­tain. I have been in train­ing for a cou­ple of years and we’ve done a lot for test­ing to see what is pos­si­ble.”

Su­per­girl star Fred­er­ick Sch­midt has been an­nounced as the lat­est cast mem­ber of the ac­tion fran­chise with direc­tor Christo­pher McQuar­rie re­turn­ing to the film as well. McQuar­rie is pro­duc­ing along­side Tom, Fred­er­ick, Don Granger, JJ Abrams, David El­li­son and Dana Gold­berg.

How­ever, Jeremy Ren­ner will not be repris­ing his role as IMF field op­er­a­tions direc­tor Wil­liam Brandt due to a sched­ul­ing clash with Avengers: In­fin­ity War, in which he will be play­ing Hawk­eye again.

The 46-year-old ac­tor – who was in 2015’s Mis­sion: Im­pos­si­ble – Rogue Na­tion – had been in talks about a re­turn, but a sched­ul­ing con­flict with the Marvel Cine­matic Uni­verse film means he can­not re­turn to the role of Wil­liam Brandt.

Big-screen Su­per­man Henry Cav­ill has also been added to the star-stud­ded cast for Mis­sion: Im­pos­si­ble 6. Re­becca Fer­gu­son, Ving Rhames, Si­mon Pegg, Alec Bald­win and Sean Har­ris are all re­turn­ing for this in­stal­ment.

The film is sched­uled for re­lease in July 2018. – Bang Show­biz
