Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media have set a Summer 2018 release date for Mission: Impossible 6. The sixth installment will be coming to theaters on July 27, 2018, which is the same date that Warner Bros. Pictures was looking at for Aquaman, though that was not confirmed.
Paramount has also set a December 22, 2017 release date for Alexander Payne’s next film, Downsizing.
Mission: Impossible 6 is expected to begin production in the spring of 2017 with Christopher McQuarrie, who previously helmed Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, once again writing and directing.
Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, released in 2015, 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). It’s a safe bet that many will be returning for the latest chapter with Ferguson confirmed to reprise her role.
McQuarrie’s return to the franchise marks the first time a director has helmed more than one Mission: Impossible film. Brian De Palma directed the original adaptation, which was followed by sequels directed by John Woo, J.J, Abrams and Brad Bird.
