Drew Pearce’s latest screenwriting effort, Iron Man 3, was a little box office darling you may have heard of.  Though Pearce co-wrote the Marvel movie with director Shane Black, it looks like Pearce alone will get the first crack at Paramount’s new Mission: Impossible film.  It was recently reported that franchise star Tom Cruise is officially attached to produce and star in Mission: Impossible 5.  Production on the film is is expected to start in the fall after Cruise wraps filming on Warner Bros.’ The Man From U.N.C.L.E.  Plot details are being kept quiet, per THR, and the search for a director is currently underway.  Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) is reportedly in talks, but recently signed on to write and direct a remake of Ice Station Zebra.
