Helmed by McQuarrie (The Way of the Gun, Jack Reacher), the new Mission: Impossible movie stars Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner (Marvel’s The Avengers, Kill the Messenger), Alec Baldwin (The Departed, “30 Rock”), Simon Pegg (Star Trek, The World’s End), Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction, Dawn of the Dead), Simon McBurney (The Last King of Scotland, The Theory of Everything) and Rebecca Ferguson (Hercules, The Red Tent) and features a screenplay by Will Staples and Drew Pearce.
Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise-starrer “Mission: Impossible 5″ has been officially named as “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation”.
Paramount Studios has announced that the new title shares a key word with Lucasfilm and Disney’s “Star Wars” spin-off, “Rogue One”, said the Hollywood Reporter.
“Rogue Nation” will open more than three years after “Mission: Impossible â€” Ghost Protocol” grossed nearly USD 695 million worldwide.
Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg reprise their roles in the new film alongside Cruise, while Rebecca Ferguson joins the series.
The plot, kept under wraps until now, follows Hunt and his team as they take on a highly-skilled rogue syndicate intent on destroying them, setting off a global chase.
The fifth “Mission: Impossible” was originally slated to debut in December 2015, but Paramount moved the release forward by five months, from Christmas to July 31, 2015.
