IRON MAN 3 Scribe Drew Pearce Hired For Fifth MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE

Drew_PearceParamount is wasting no time in getting their next Mission: Impossible film into development. Having secured the services of franchise star Tom Cruise for a fifth installment just last week, the studio has found themselves a writer to pen the adventure. Landing the gig is Drew Pearce, who scripted this summer’s Iron Man 3. No doubt that film’s already impressive billion dollar take at the box office helped to inform that decision.

Still no word yet as to who may be directing the film, but I would assume that that decision should come quickly in order for Pearce to have someone to shape the screenplay with. Cruises’ Jack Reacher collaborator Christopher McQuarrie still remains the rumored frontrunner, even though he signed last week to write and direct a remake of Ice Station Zebra for Warner Brothers.
