Tom Cruise has signed a deal to star in a fifth Mission: Impossible movie.
Cruise will return to screens as Ethan Hunt in the follow-up to 2011's Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011).
It has also been reported that Christopher McQuarrie, who most recently worked with Cruise on Jack Reacher, is in contention to direct Mission: Impossible 5.
Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions, who are co-financing the movie, are expected to confirm further details - including a writer, director and release timeframe - in the near future.
Cruise confirmed that Mission: Impossible 5 had entered development during a recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show.
Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol has grossed almost $700 million (£450 million) worldwide since opening in December 2011.
