Deadline is reporting that [Tom Cruise] has decided he no longer wants to make The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and instead focus on his already-established franchise based on a spy television series: Mission: Impossible. While Warner Bros. was planning on having Ritchie start production on the new film this fall, Cruise is now planning to use that time to get Mission: Impossible 5 going, hoping to start shooting before the end of the year. It’s worth noting that the sequel doesn’t currently have a director attached, but does have Iron Man 3 co-writer Drew Pearce handling the script.” – cinemablend
