Tom Cruise Promises ‘Incredible Set Pieces’ for ‘Mission: Impossible 6’
The actor behind the hit spy series couldn’t make it to Las Vegas this go-round. Cruise was busy filming in London, but he still taped a video appearance for the exhibition industry confab, promising that super spy Ethan Hunt will be back for more global espionage and gravity-defying world saving. Filming will begin next fall with “Rogue Nation” director and co-writer Christopher McQuarrie returning for another adventure.
The mission may change, but the formula will stay the same. Cruise said that there will be “…more incredible set pieces, stunts…and what I think is a very entertaining and compelling story.”

The new film, “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back,” reunites Cruise with his “The Last Samurai” director Ed Zwick. The actor said that the film is about an “analog character in a digital world,” and promised that it would feature “real classic movie, movie stuff.”
Paramount, the studio behind both franchises, unveiled the first footage from “Never Go Back” — highlighting scenes that showed Reacher using his hands and wits to get the best of anyone dumb enough to challenge him.
