Paramount Pictures has scheduled Tom Cruise’s ” Mission: Impossible 6 ” for July, 27, 2018.
Cruise had announced in July, 2015, that he planned to go ahead with “Mission: Impossible 6” – a notion that was strongly endorsed by the studio following a $121 million global opening for “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” with $56 million in the U.S. and another $65 million from 40% of international markets.
“Rogue Nation” took in $195 million domestically and $682 million worldwide.
Paramount also announced Wednesday that it has set Alexander Payne’s “Downsizing” for Dec. 22, 2017.
The previous four “Mission: Impossible” films have grossed a combined $2 billion at the worldwide box office. “Rogue Nation,” which carries a $150 million pricetag, is produced by Cruise along with J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger.
Christopher McQuarrie directed “Rogue Nation” from a screenplay he wrote with Drew Pearce. Each “Mission: Impossible” has employed a different director. The previous films were directed by Brian De Palma, John Woo, Abrams and Brad Bird.
