The Los Angeles based actor recently revealed plans for more Mission Impossible films, which will see him playing daring super spy Ethan Hunt.
Tom Cruise returns as super spy, Ethan Hunt in the upcoming sixth movie in the series Mission: Impossible – Fallout which is due out in cinemas 27 July 2018 and the 55-year-old actor thinks there’s still a lot of mileage left in the blockbuster franchise.
Cruise said: “I have a lot of ideas about the next phase, about the next two or three films, of where I want to go. I’m not ready to discuss it now, but you’ll be able to see when you see this movie. It’s very much the epic in all of this series.”
“McQ (the film’s director Christopher McQuarrie] and I have talked about it and I was like, ‘We’ve earned it with this franchise to blow it out of this way’.” The Mission Impossible series has been Cruise’s longest running franchise, but he says it is never easy to make one. “You think you know how to make these films until you start making the next one. It’s very humbling.”
‘I’m always like, ‘I know how to make these movies.’ Then you’re like, ‘Oh my God, I don’t know what I’m doing.’ That’s ‘Mission…’ you know. And you just keep at it,” he added.
In the next Mission Impossible instalment, Cruise said there are some really epic daredevil stunts one of which involves him carrying out a HALO (High Altitude Low Opening) jump used by highly trained military personnel to enter enemy or hostile territories, and involves Cruise jumping out of a plane at staggering 25,000 feet and opening a parachute only 2,000 feet before the ground.
