“Reacher” Director Re-Teams With Cruise
Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie are getting together again.
McQuarrie, you may recall, directed Cruise in last year’s atrocious Jack Reacher, a big screen adaptation of Lee Child’s best-seller One Shot.
This time around McQuarrie will be directing the star in Mission Impossible 5 – the hit franchise which sees the star return as super spy Ethan Hunt. Lets hope it’s better than Jack Reacher.
Paramount Pictures and production company Skydance Productions hope to have the pic – to be scripted by Drew Pierce and produced by Cruise’s Tom Cruise Productions and JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot – in theatres for a December 25, 2015 release.
The previous installment, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, grossed more than $690 million worldwide.
