Mission: Impossible 6 is in the works, Paramount Pictures vice chairman Rob Moore has confirmed.
“We’re very happy to be developing this movie with Tom (Cruise). There’s no question that Ethan Hunt deserves another film,” Moore told variety.com.

It got a $121 million global opening. Paul Dergarabedian, <g data-gr-id="21">senior</g> media analyst at Rentrak, said he’s not surprised that another Mission: Impossible is in the works.
“I think it’s very smart,” he added. “Given the performance of Rogue Nation, there has to be another movie.”
Cruise had earlier revealed plans to return in the Ethan Hunt role for a sixth Mission: Impossible.n “We’re starting to work on it now. We’ll probably start shooting it next summer,” he said.
