Much to the disappointment of fans all over, Ethan Hunt's next mission has been put to halt temporarily.
According to the sources, it is learned that, due to the pay dispute between producer and the 'MI6' lead cast Tom Cruise, the project has been paused until a solution is reached.
This all started with Tom Cruise getting a higher pay for doing Universal's The Mummy reboot. And consequently, Cruise wants a similar kind of back-end pay from the Paramount franchise for the movie 'MI6'.
Now it will be interesting to see, how the franchise will react to this, as a matter of fact, Tom Cruise's Mission Impossible has been among one of the most successful action movie series that Paramount pictures has managed to run through all these years.
Be it star power or highly developed action sequences, it draws a major chunk of audiences to the theatres around the world post release.
Mission: Impossible 6 is all set to be headed by Christopher McQuarrie in the direction from his own written script, as he did the same in the previous installment, Rogue Nation. Tom Cruise is said to be busy in his upcoming The Mummy reboot.
According to the sources, the movie has been slated to release in late 2017, and the unit is hopeful that a suitable solution to the matter can be chalked out, as there is still time in hands.
