‘Mission Impossible 5’ Jumpstarts Filming with Stunts in Vienna, Austria

One does not simply brand the impossible for “Mission: Impossible” as Paramount Pictures is setting everything in motion with “Mission: Impossible 5.” The pic begins filming in Vienna, Austria. More details to this scoop as you read on.

A lot of people thought that when Paramount Pictures released “Mission: Impossible III” or “MI3” in 2006, it will serve as the finale for the franchise. However, they were proven wrong when “Mission: Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol” was released in 2011 and became the highest grossing of all the installments. With such success, it comes without a doubt that the production behind the reputable espionage movie came up with yet another sequel to Tom Cruise’s (somewhat undying) action-packed franchise. Paramount Pictures gears itself up for the creation of the impossible with “Mission: Impossible 5,” and they are now currently shooting in the splendid location in Vienna, Austria.


With Christopher McQuarrie helming the fifth installment, Tom Cruise reprises his role as Ethan Hunt, and he is not the only one making the dramatic comeback. Stars of the 2011 “Mission: Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol” Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner, Ving Rhames returns as Benji Dunn, William Brandt and Luther Stickell, respectively. Of course, it will not be the hailed the ultimate espionage movie without the leading lady. This time around, Rebecca Ferguson of “The White Queen” joins the franchise as the female lead according to Screen Rant.

The production for the film is currently taking place in Vienna, Austria, and it appears as though stunts are still heavily coordinated for the franchise. In the photos shown at Coming Soon, you will see Cruise and Ferguson ridden with harnesses as they ascended and traversed through the roof of the Vienna Opera House. From these photos alone, fans can already expect that the iconic stunts of “Mission: Impossible” is carefully attained and choreographed up to this latest installment.

There isn’t much explanation on the film’s premise to date, but speculations suggest that the team of spies is continuing their global adventure facing a different kind of adversary. The movie’s initial draft was said to be created by “Iron Man 3” writer Drew Pearce and was later on passed to “Call of Duty” playwright Will Staples for some redrafting. The movie looks to be promising with its coming holiday release next year, as it is set to open in theaters on Dec. 25, 2015.
