Mission: Impossible 6 arriving 2018

Paramount Pictures has locked down when we can expect the return of Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt. Mission: Impossible 6 is heading to cinemas on July 27th 2018.

That release date – in the US at least – is going to see it do battle with James Wan’s Aquaman movie, starring Jason Momoa. UK release dates for both movies haven’t been inked in yet, but are likely to reflect the US release.

Mission: Impossible 6 will be written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie, the first director to return for a second movie in the series. He previously steered Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation to box office and critical success.

It’s unclear how many of Tom Cruise’s IMF team will be returning for the new movie. Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner, Ving Rhames and Rebecca Ferguson are expected to return, but no announcement has been made as of yet.
