‘Mission Impossible 6’ Movie Update: Should McQuarrie Move On or Break the Tradition?

Mission Impossible is a well-known action spy film series featuring heartthrob Tom Cruise as IMF agent Ethan Hunt. The series had been creatively crafted on screens by various directors along the same story line progression. After four successive sequels of “Mission: Impossible,” should director McQuarrie go for the next one? Read on to find out more.

The sequels of “Mission: Impossible” follow from the first part wherein agent Ethan Hunt takes charge after being betrayed by his team as Hunt leads the main field team. MI series is one of the top most grossing series with more than $2 billion worth worldwide, as stated by Box Office Mojo.


Paramount Pictures entrusted the franchise to new directors for this huge budget venture and let them play their minds on “Mission Impossible.”

“Mission: Impossible III” (2006) director J. J. Abram and “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” (2011) director Brad Bird weren’t the names anyone thought would ever direct these blockbusters. More or less, all the sequels have been financially successful. Although, the last two parts directed by Christopher McQuarrie were great hits both amongst fans and critics.

On being asked about directing another “Mission Impossible” installment, Christopher McQuarrie said in an interview with Cinema Blend that changing the directors in every chapter helps build the audience’s interest in every movie.

“And they are very, very challenging movies to make and, with each movie, it becomes more challenging for the next person. And when I was watching Tom on the side of the A400, the first thing I said when he landed was, ‘Boy, I feel sorry for the next director.’”

Should “Mission Impossible 6” find a new director or should Christopher McQuarrie continue his legacy following the success of “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation?”

Let’s wait and see who will take the blockbuster tradition ahead. Stay tuned on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more update.
