After months of speculation, it has officially been confirmed that Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie has come aboard to direct the highly anticipated sequel to Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, currently known only as Mission: Impossible 5. Rather than announcing the news via a press release or through a trade report, the filmmaker instead decided to elegantly spread the news himself, sending out a message on Twitter reading simply,

McQuarrie has reportedly been the top choice for Mission: Impossible 5 for a long time now, dating back to November 2012 – a full month before Jack Reacher was actually released.

The duo most recently appeared together in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con to promote the latter film.
