Christopher McQuarrie Closes Deal to Direct Back-to-Back ‘Mission: Impossible’ Films
Sources tell Variety that McQuarrie has signed back on to return to write and direct the next two films in the popular franchise. Sources also add that both films would be shot back-to-back — not unlike the final two “Avengers” sequels — in order to take advantage of the popularity of the series, with the first bowing summer 2021 and the second coming out in summer 2022. The release comes in 2021 to avoid conflict with Paramount and Cruise’s next big venture, “Top Gun: Maverick.”

I've definitely got a soft spot for the MI movies. They're not anything spectacular, but Cruise knows how to make an enjoyable movie.

As a way for them to wrap up the series, or at the very least Ethan Hunts story, it would make sense to go out with a big two partner. I do think it's time for Cruise to wrap it up. He's been making these things for twenty years now and he's not getting any younger.

Ideally I'd like them to introduce a new central cast and perhaps take it back to something more like the first film which was far more like a traditional spy thriller than the action movies they so frequently were.

Every time a M:I movie is announced I assume it’s going to be gooseberry fool. But they usually turn out to be (at worst) decent or good.

Back to back movies? They’ll be gooseberry fool.

Hopefully the trio will be back. Wouldn’t be the same without Harold Ramis.

But still...

As long as Dan Aykroyd is absolutely no where near it then it might have a chance.

Needs Rick Moranis. It also needs to be twice as good as it did before the 2016 disaster.

The 2016 film was fine, certainly better than other reboots of beloved franchises like Robocop or, shudder, Point Break. Yet for some reason these didn't attract anywhere near the level of vitriol. I wonder why...

I agree with the Forbes piece on this being a...two sided announcement:

On one hand, you're rewarding a white male director whose last five movies bombed (and of those, only the two starring Charlize Theron and penned by Diablo Cody received positive reviews) the keys to a hugely valuable franchise mostly because he's the son of the guy who directed those first two Ghostbusters movies. And yes, unintentional or not, you're essentially rewarding the specific demographics who reacted in the very worst way to the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot with the thing they claimed to want instead of the... horrors... all-female sci-fi comedy. And yet, we have only ourselves to blame. Studios aren't charities and they tend to want movies that attract moviegoers and make money.

Still haven't watched John Wick 2 as the first one was a bit of a disappointment after folks on here had hyped it up so much!

We all know Lagamorph and Ironhide have awful opinions, but I would like to nominate Jenuall for a place in the WRONG WRONG WRONG triumvirate.

Well possibly my favourite movie of all time came top in the movie eliminator so therefore my opinions are now unquestionably right. :P

I did enjoy JW quite a lot, but some people or here were making it out to be the greatest action movie of all time or something!

Also his dog had it coming. ;)

Seconded.
