Cruise is back with a ‘thrilling’ Mission
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
