Drew Pearce to script Mission: Impossible 5

May 15 2013, 5:20am CDT | by

'Iron Man 3' co-writer Drew Pearce will pen 'Mission: Impossible 5'.

The scriptwriter has been given the task of writing Paramount's next installment in the action franchise, which Tom Cruise will star in as well as produce.

Christopher McQuarrie - who directed Cruise in 2012's 'Jack Reacher' - has entered negotiations to direct, while J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot company will produce the movie, whose plot is being kept secret.

The 'Mission: Impossible' franchise - which first hit screens in 1996 and stars Cruise as secret agent Ethan Hunt - is as popular as ever and has grossed more than $2 billion overall.

The fourth film in the series, 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol', earned $700 million worldwide and became action veteran Cruise's highest-earning film ever.

The Brad Bird-helmed flick saw 'Avengers' star Jeremy Renner join the franchise while Simon Pegg reprised his role as technician Benji Dunn.

Production is expected to begin on 'MI:5' this autumn after Cruise finishes filming Warner Bros.' 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.', a big screen adaptation of the cult 1960s TV show,

Scriptwriter Pearce is also working on Guillermo del Toro's much-anticipated 'Pacific Rim', as well as planning his directorial debut.

Could The First ‘Star Wars Episode VII’ Trailer Be Coming This Year?

Oct 27 2014 2:30pm CDT | Source: slash film

Interstellar, Inherent Vice, Guardians of the Galaxy… as excited as I was for all those films coming into 2014, the thing I’m still most looking forward to is the Star Wars Episode VII teaser trailer. The problem is, with the film hitting in December 2015, the odds of that trailer coming out this year seem really slim. Some new buzz is circling the Internet, however, that not only says that director J. ...

ZERO DARK THIRTY Cinematographer Greig Fraser Will Shoot Gareth Edwards’ STAR WARS Movie

Oct 24 2014 1:28pm CDT | Source: Collider

While Lucasfilm and Disney have been incredibly tight-lipped with regards to director J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, the studios have unveiled essentially nothing about the other Star Wars films in the works.  We know that starting next year, there are plans to release a new Star Wars movie every year, and we also know that the first film after Episode VII will be a “standalone” Star Wars feature directed by Godzilla hel ...

Oscar Isaac is a busy man since he scored the role of a lifetime in the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis. He has The Two Faces of January landing soon and of course, there’s that little independent film he’s shooting now in London that goes by the name of Star Wars: Episode VII. Isaac was talking to The Huffington Post about his upcoming projects and the state of his career, and naturally the conversation turned to the galaxy far, far away. And althoug ...

STAR TREK: THE COMPENDIUM Blu-ray Review

Sep 30 2014 10:51am CDT | Source: Collider

Paramount committed an egregious faux pas last year with its release of Star Trek: Into Darkness by sprinkling different extras on different Blu-rays.  If you bought your disc at Target, you got one set of extras.  If you bought it at Best Buy, you got a different set.  If you wanted all of them, you basically had to buy multiple copies of the same movie, then vent your fiery wrath across the Inter ...

TV Review: ‘Star Wars Rebels’

Sep 29 2014 9:30am CDT | Source: variety

Perhaps the “Star Wars” franchise’s worst-kept secret during the second-trilogy era is that its best screen depictions have come via TV animation. Inaugurating the Disney-synergy juggernaut before director J.J. Abrams can get there, “Star Wars Rebels” continues this trend, offering a sly, stylish offshoot — introducing a ...

STAR WARS EPISODE VII Concept Image Depicts Epic Lightsaber Duel

Sep 26 2014 9:38am CDT | Source: Collider

Another day, another image from Star Wars: Episode VII, but this one just happens to be the best thing I've seen from the movie so far.  It depicts a lightsaber duel under the Millenium Falcon with a Darth Vader-like figure fighting a Rebel with a green lightsaber.  It's epic looking, and for a second I get excited but then I remember the prequels and how flat they were visually (not to mention narratively).  Then I get excited all over again because there ...

Remember last month when some genuine concept art from Star Wars: Episode VII started popping up, revealing the new Stormtroopers and the costume designs for Han Solo?  Well the same source is at it again, as they’ve now revealed a Chrome Trooper image by way of even more concept art.  Thankfully this isn’t incredibly spoilerly, but it’s neat to see how director J.J. Abrams is making the franchise his own by ...
