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.

TV's the place to be!  That's what award-winning movie actors are starting to learn thanks to the critical and financial success of shows like HBO's Game of Thrones and True Detective.  The cable network's latest series adaptation tackles Westworld, writer-director Michael Crichton's 1973 sci-fi movie that starred Yul Brynner as a malfunctioning Wild West robot at a futuristic adult amusement park.  While HBO could certainly have gone bonkers with a premise like tha ...
