Following allegations of last-minute script rewrites not to mention Paramount’s decision to bump the sequel’s release date up into the summer, there have many questions tossed in Mission: Impossible 5‘s direction. Does the long-running spy franchise have enough mileage in the tank for another iteration? Indeed, can the writing team top the stunts seen in Ghost Protocol? Is Tom Cruise secretly a superhero?
Thankfully, director Christopher McQuarrie took to Twitter to answer some of those questions, all the while revealing that the film will get its first trailer and title very soon.

In the digital age we live in, where untimely leaks are a dime a dozen, you almost have to hand it to Paramount and the Mission: Impossible 5 team that we still don’t know an awful lot about the upcoming release. Aside from Tom Cruise performing an appropriately near-impossible stunt, there is nary a word on plot to be found, but we can readily expect to learn much more when the first footage makes its way online.
What we do know, however, is that Cruise will be joined on what is sure to be a globe-trotting adventure by Sean Harris, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Alec Baldwin, and series stalwart Ving Rhames.
Following Paramount’s recent reshuffle, Mission: Impossible 5 will now make its bow in theaters on July 31. Until then, tell us, are you looking forward to McQuarrie’s spy caper or will you reserve judgement until the seemingly imminent release of the sequel’s first trailer? Let us know in the comments.
