Paramount’s Mission: Impossible 5 have already secured director Christopher McQuarrie and a Christmas Day 2015 release date, but now the studio and star/producer Tom Cruise have tapped Will Staples to pen the script. Who’s Will Staples, you ask? Well the bulk of his resume takes place in the world of video games such as Need for Speed: Rivals and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. He is, however, attached to several films in development, including Warner Bros.’ Ben Affleck-starrer and directing vehicle Blood & Treasure, Fox’s Myth, and the Jeremy Renner vehicle King of Heists.
Cruise will return as operative Ethan Hunt, alongside Simon Pegg and the rumored Jeremy Renner and Paula Patton. Drew Pearce was the previous screenwriter attached to Paramount’s upcoming franchise action picture, but that was before McQuarrie came on board last summer, so it will be interesting to see how the new writing/directing pair get along.
