Howdy ladies and gents, time for some more film news and today’s news relates to the next film in the Mission: Impossible series and a change to its release date. The following information comes from superherohype:
With the latest franchise sequel having entered production last year, Paramount Pictures has some very exciting news today for Mission: Impossible fans. Mission: Impossible 5, formerly planned for release on December 25, 2015, will arrive nearly five months earlier than expected! Look for Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt to once again grace the big screen this July 31!
Directed by Christopher McQuarrie (The Way of the Gun, Jack Reacher), Mission: Impossible 5 also stars 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.
The July 31 date will see Mission: Impossible 5 opening opposite the Antoine Fuqua-directed boxing drama Southpaw (starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Rachel McAdams, Forest Whitaker, Naomie Harris, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Rita Ora and Victor Ortiz), the Ericson Core-helmed big screen remake of Point Break (starring Ray Winstone, Teresa Palmer, Edgar Ramirez, Luke Bracey) and Tarsem Singh’s Ryan Reynolds-led science fiction thriller Selfless.
No plot details for Mission: Impossible 5 have, as of yet, been released, but check back for updates as soon as they become available. If you missed them, you can also check out some photos from the new film’s London production right here.
Well this just makes me happy. While I was down with the idea of watching MI5 after Christmas, the fact that it’s moved to the summertime just seems like a good idea because the MI films seem more like summer-based films. Obviously this a good move for Paramount because they are probably going to be more money in July, than in December opening after Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I’ve been ready for this film for a while and the fact that the release date has been moved up is awesome.
