Production On Upcoming Mission: Impossible Film Halted

The fuse on a new Mission: Impossible movie has been briefly extinguished. Pre-production had already begun on the the sixth film in the franchise, which was announced before the last instalment, 2015’s Rogue Nation, was even released. But Deadline reports that work has now been temporarily halted.

According to the report, a small team of around 15 to 20 people had begun early prep on the film in London, including visual effects tests, but Paramount have now ordered work to stop until a pay dispute has been settled.

It’s unclear where the dispute lies: one source suggests that the studio are looking to reduce the fees of its producer-star, Tom Cruise, and the production companies Bad Robot and Skydance. The other scenario is that Cruise’s agent is angling for more moolah, given he remains a huge box-office draw, and M:I is among Paramount’s biggest franchises. (Rogue Nation earned just under $700m.)

It’s hardly an impossible mission to get things back on track – disputes of this sort are not uncommon in big-budget filmmaking, where agents are looking to deliver massive paydays for their A-list clients while studios hope to keep overheads to a minimum. Prep is apparently due to resume on the film once the behind-the-scenes deal-making is done.

Given it’s still very early days – no release date is set, and filming is not due to start until the new year – the delay is likely to minimal. Rogue Nation’s Christopher McQuarrie is returning to write and direct the sequel, bringing along that film’s breakout star Rebecca Ferguson for the ride. As long as everything is amicably sorted out, we can probably expect Mission: Impossible 6 to arrive some time in 2018.

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…
