If you didn’t think Cobie Smulders had enough to do in Avengers: Age of Ultron, then keep an eye out for Jack Reacher 2. Smulders is reportedly close to signing a deal to join the cast as the co-lead opposite Tom Cruise. If the film follows the reported source novel to even a vague degree, she’ll have a great role that will put her right in the action with Cruise. Read More »

The Mission: Impossible series is a slow-burning one, unlike the fuse that accompanies each film’s opening credits, and very much unlike the typical development path for some big action franchises. (2006 through 2015 delivered three Mission: Impossible movies, but five Fast and the Furious films, for example.)
With the latest mission, Rogue Nation, about to hit theaters, star and producer Tom Cruise says the wait for the next film might be much shorter. He isn’t getting any younger after all, and so the wait for Mission: Impossible 6 might be much shorter than the interval between other installments in the series. Additionally, Cruise says he has pitched an Edge of Tomorrow sequel to couple recent collaborators.
Update: Paramount has confirmed Cruise’s announcement of the Mission: Impossible 6 development.

Top Gun, released in 1986, is one of the films that cemented Tom Cruise as a superstar. (It’s also one that features more subtle acting than many people give it credit for, as argued here.) In 2010, we learned that Paramount was kicking around ideas for a Top Gun 2. At the time Paramount hoped to land Cruise for a small appearance. Then original director Tony Scott decided to direct, and Cruise’s role was said to have grown to lead status. But the 2012 death of Scott stalled Top Gun 2 for years. Even now, it is still in the development stage.
When Peter Sciretta spoke to Skydance Productions CEO David Ellison last week, he talked to the producer/financier about Top Gun 2. The script is coming together, and Ellison promises that “there is no Top Gun without Maverick.” Read More »
