UPDATE: Director Christopher McQuarrie has clarified this story just a bit:
The Mission: Impossible movies don’t need city-leveling CGI set pieces or characters created entirely through motion capture. They already have the greatest special effect of all time. That special effect is called Tom Cruise. Ageless, fearless, and seemingly built in a laboratory to withstand stunts that would have (sane) actors calling for their doubles, Cruise has upped the ante with each Mission: Impossible movie, finding new and exciting ways to risk his life for the sake of our “Oohs” and “Aahs.” He will one day die on a movie set at the age of 91, looking like he’s 45, with a smile on severed head. He probably tried to surf on a helicopter blade.
Anyway, Mission: Impossible 6 will apparently feature a stunt so extreme that Cruise trained for a year so he could pull it off.

For fans of the original Ghost in the Shell anime and manga who might be perturbed by the fact that the live-action adaptation from Paramount Pictures is starring Scarlett Johansson, creating another instance of whitewashing in Hollywood, the studio is trying to make amends in an interesting but potentially problematic way.
When a Hollywood film is released in Japan, audiences can choose to see it with subtitles or dubbed by actors. In the case of Ghost in the Shell, the actors doing the voiceover work for the dubbed version will be the original voice actors of the anime adaptation from 1995. Read More »
There are some really big movies hitting theaters this month. Logan is in theaters now, Kong: Skull Island arrives next week (and it’s fantastic), Beauty and the Beast arrives on March 17 (and it’s also pretty good), Power Rangers follows on March 24, and then we come to Paramount’s contribution to a surprisingly packed blockbuster month: Ghost in the Shell.
