LOS ANGELES, Nov. 9 (UPI) — Paramount Pictures has announced that the next entry in their lucrative spy-action series “Mission: Impossible 6” will hit theaters in Summer 2018.
According to Deadline, Tom Cruise will be returning as IMF agent Ethan Hunt on July 27, 2018, similar to the release date of “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” in 2015 that brought in $682 million worldwide at the box office.
Directed by “Rogue Nation” helmer Christopher McQuarrie, the project will reunite Cruise, who is also a producer, with series stars Ving Rhames, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Rebecca Ferguson.
Previously, Cruise said the sequel would have “more incredible set pieces, stunts,..and what I think is a very entertaining and compelling story.” according to Variety.
Outside of “Mission: Impossible 6,” Paramount also set their upcoming comedy-drama Downsizing starring Matt Damon to launch on Dec. 22, 2017. The film about a man who shrinks himself also stars Christoph Waltz, Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudeikis, Alec Baldwin and Neil Patrick Harris.
