Yes. They are making another Mission: Impossible movie, because no mission is impossible for Hollywood, except of course to go out on a limb and make something original. That seems to be impossible.
But enough of my bitching. It’s Friday, and to be honest, the last Mission: Impossible film was actually pretty good.
The upcoming sequel will bring back director Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise, and thanks to an Instagram post from the director, we know Henry Cavill has joined the cast.
Cavill replied to the post in the comments with a short message, “How can I say no to a man with such perfect hair…” he wrote.
And then they had this conversation (seriously)
McQuarrie: Excellent. Just a few caveats: must enjoy extreme heights, high speeds, motor vehicles of all varieties (especially aircraft), practical stunts, firearms, and sporadic exposition. All good?
Cavill: Only if I get to fly for real.
McQuarrie: I do believe I specified practical stunts. You in?
Cavill: Oh ok…..I’m in!
McQuarrie: Outstanding. Welcome aboard. Your social media account will self destruct in 5 seconds.
There you have it. Superman is coming to the Mission: Impossible franchise. Are you excited?
