the mummy remake

Months ago it was reported Tom Cruise was in negotiations to headline Universal’s third recent attempt to revive their classic monsters. Now, it’s been confirmed Cruise will indeed star in director Alex Kurtzman‘s (People Like Us) remake of The Mummy. Having an actor of Cruise’s caliber involved probably played a hand in the studio’s decision to open the tentpole film in the summer.

most overpaid actors

In news that should come as no surprise the millions of people who went out of their way to avoid Mortdecai and Transcendence, Forbes has compiled its annual list of the most overpaid actors in Hollywood and Johnny Depp is sitting not-so-pretty at number one. And when you look at the raw numbers, no one else is even close.

However, there’s a little more going on here than a great excuse to kick Johnny Depp and his collection of dumb hats while they’re down. The disparity between what “movie stars” are paid and what their movies end up grossing at the box office is shifting. The age of the movie star is effectively over and you can see this reflected in the full list below.

‘Mission: Impossible 6’ Will Have Its Own Style

Mission: Impossible 6 style

What’s great about the Mission: Impossible series is that every installment has its own flavor. Each filmmaker, from Brian De Palma (Dressed to Kill) to J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) to Brad Bird (Tomorrowland), brought their distinct style to the franchise. This past summer, with Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, writer/director Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) left his identifiable mark on the series. McQuarrie is returning to direct the sixth installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise, but that doesn’t mean we should expect to see the same vision twice.

After the jump, read what McQuarrie had to say about the Mission: Impossible 6 style.
