Production on the sixth film in the massively successful Mission:
The Hollywood Reporter has said over the weekend that while the film is still in pre-production it has been temporarily put on hold whilst the dispute is sorted out between the two parties, though it is thought that a solution will be found soon enough especially given the success of the franchise thus far.
The website states that the issue has to do with Cruise’s back-end deal on the film, with the actor trying to negotiate a deal in-line with what Universal Pictures is paying him for starring in their reboot of The Mummy, set for next summer.
Previous entry, Rogue Nation, grossed over $682million at the worldwide box office and its success has seen writer/director Christopher McQuarrie become the first director to direct a second film in the series.
We wait to see if Mission: Impossible 6 is still on course for it’s late 2017 release.
