This would make McQuarrie the first director to helm more than one Mission: Impossible film, with previous installments being handled by such filmmakers as Brian De Palma, John Woo, JJ Abrams and Brad Bird. Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation arrived in cinemas this past July and made $682 million worldwide; it currently stands as the seventh highest grossing film of the year. No release date has been set for Mission: Impossible VI as of yet, but star and producer Tom Cruise has suggested that filming could commence as early as August next year.
