Relax, Tom Cruise Is Officially Returning For ‘Mission: Impossible 6’

Pre-production on Mission: Impossible 6 came to a halt last month when a contract dispute between Tom Cruise and Paramount threatened to stall the sixth installment in the blockbuster franchise. The sticking point? Cruise wanted the studio to match — or top — what Universal is paying him to star in The Mummy reboot, but Paramount was a little contentious…yeah right, as if they weren’t going to give Tom Cruise, the star of one of their biggest franchises, what he wants.

THR has a positive follow-up to their initial report on the dispute, as the trade reveals that Cruise and Paramount have officially worked out a deal for the actor to return for the upcoming sequel. Pre-production on Mission: Impossible 6 has resumed, though filming will begin a little later than originally planned; instead of starting in January 2017, production will now begin in the spring.

To be honest, was anyone really worried that Paramount wouldn’t ensure Cruise’s return? The actor has starred in and produced the series since the beginning, starting with Brian De Palma’s first Mission: Impossible film in 1996. It seemed kind of wacky that Paramount would contend with Cruise’s salary demands (I mean, in the grander scheme of things, the guy’s still making millions more per film than an average human will earn in their entire lifetime) when he’s the face of the franchise, which generated $682.3 million worldwide with Rogue Nation.

That success was largely credited to screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie, who is returning to script and direct Mission: Impossible 6, which is currently eyeing a late 2017 release.
