If you were counting on seeing Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible 6, DON’T!  It’s starting to look like that in itself is a ‘Mission Impossible.’

According to, Paramount Pictures has put the brakes on Cruise’s mission by temporarily stopping pre-production on the movie.

There are two versions why according to Deadline.

One is Paramount/Viacom wants to cut Tom’s pay and the two production companies attached to the movie, Bad Robot which is JJ Abrams production company and Skydance which is Cruise’s.

The other version is that Tom wants a paycheck equal to what he got for The Mummy, which is not due out until next summer.

Here’s the thing, the last three films (Missions) cost around $150 million to produce and the last two delivered near $700 million worldwide grosses a piece, so what’s the problem??

Well if “option A” is true, then the studio just wants to play hardball with Tom, but if Jack Reacher, which comes out in October reaches their goal and The Mummy which doesn’t come out until next summer is a big hit, then this becomes a different conversation.

Bottom line both Paramount and Cruise need ‘The Mission Impossible’ franchise enough to sort out who gets paid for what.
