    Chris McQuarrie will be back to direct two new Mission: Impossible movies:

    Sources tell Variety that McQuarrie has signed back on to return to write and direct the next two films in the popular franchise. Sources also add that both films would be shot back-to-back — not unlike the final two “Avengers” sequels — in order to take advantage of the popularity of the series, with the first bowing summer 2021 and the second coming out in summer 2022. The release comes in 2021 to avoid conflict with Paramount and Cruise’s next big venture, “Top Gun: Maverick.”

    Depending on the release date, Tom Cruise may or may not be 60 by the time the second of these gets released. Say what you will about him but he does. Not. Age.

    Apparently he turned down DC films for this. I would've done the same.
