McQuarrie has officially boarded #MI6, the helmer tweet-confirmed today.
This marks the first time a director is returning to the franchise. As you will know (and you should know because I say so), each blockbuster so far has required an injection of new blood. McQuarrie is breaking the cycle, and that should come as no surprise since he and the Cruiseter love collaborating.
Cruise’s Ethan Hunt is currently meant to report back for duty next summer, for what I imagine will be a summer 2017 release in theaters.
