Almost twenty-five years after he first rappelled from the ceiling of the CIA, Ethan Hunt looks to have done it all in the name of saving the world. Tom Cruise's indomitable creation has slowly grown from a solo star vehicle adaptation of an old television favourite into the preeminent action franchise of the twenty-first century, particularly from its fourth entry Ghost Protocol onward.
On the back of 2018's arguable high-water mark Fallout, fans are likely on tenterhooks over just what Cruise and key collabator Christopher McQuarrie will deliver next, with the latter taking the reins for the third time in the franchise following his work behind the camera on the last two entries (and some uncredited assistance on Ghost Protocol too).
Details are trickling out bit-by-bit - and a large chat with McQuarrie on the Light the Fuse podcast earlier this month saw the beans spilled even more - so we've rounded up what we know so far about the next mission for Hunt and his team - and just what you could be choosing to accept.
Something of a culture vulture, Mr Steel can historically be found in three places; the local cinema, the local stadium or the local chip shop. He is an avowed fan of franchise films, amateur cricket and power-chords.
