Mission: Impossible 6 has had a few hiccups during filming. There was Henry Cavill having to film Justice League reshoots with his mustache (more an issue for Warner Bros., not Paramount), and there was Tom Cruise breaking his ankle in a stunt.
Despite any setbacks, Christopher McQuarrie’s second film in the franchise never left its July 27 release date. Now, we have an official title, and a super vague synopsis for M:I6, courtesy of Tom Cruise’s Instagram:
There is it. Now Mission: Impossible 6 is (*intense whisper voice*) Mission: Impossible – Fallout. If you thought that was vague, check out the synopsis McQuarrie and Paramount released:
The best intentions often come back to haunt you. MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT finds Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team (Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames) along with some familiar allies (Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan) in a race against time after a mission gone wrong. Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, and Vanessa Kirby also join the dynamic cast with filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie returning to the helm.
That is literally the plot of every Mission: Impossible movie. Interchange names, and it fits for all five previous films. No big deal, we don’t really need a detailed layout of the plot. Just give us the kickass stunt work.
Cruise also showed off a big action image:
Stay tuned for the Mission: Impossible – Fallout trailer, which might be here before we know it.
