HOLLYWOOD – The fifth instalment of the Mission Impossible franchise starring Tom Cruise and directed by Jack Reacher genius Christopher McQuaurrie will be released in December of 2015 so mark it in your calendars.

No, not that calendar the other one. There you go.

In addition to the release date we also learned that the title would be changed. McQuarrie explained exclusively to the Studio Exec:

There are a number of factors. First of all there’s only so many times you can have a bunch of characters go on a Mission Impossible only for them to actually achieve the mission. You lose the trust of the audience and as we’ve already done it four times I think their patience is wearing pretty thin. Add to this the fact that Tom is getting to a certain age. He is 51 of our Earth years and in reality even more than that. So can he do an impossible mission? Perhaps not. 

 Can you tell us anything about the story?

Are you kidding? Of course not! All I can say is it’s going to be more realistic and less cartoonish. We’re going to see Ethan struggling with the stairs occasionally and forgetting things he had to do so much so he begins to make lists of everything and ticking them of with a biro. We’re still going to have exciting action sequences, but it’ll be more Tom putting together flat pack furniture from Ikea and less terrorist attacks.

Mission Incredibly Difficult but Doable will be released in December, 2015.  


CALIFORNIA – Tom Cruise is no longer a scientologist. 

In a shock move Tom Cruise has today renounced Scientology. He called upon the religion’s leader David Miscavige to return his immortal soul. “He has it in a safe in a Swiss bank and I want it back!” said an accusatory Cruise. Tom claims his soul was extracted from his body in the late 80s during the churches infamous auditing process.

It was the wrap party on Born on The Fourth of July and Oliver Stone slipped me a pill. He told me it would change my life. Next thing I know I’m strapped to a chair and there’re these naked people wearing face masks and goat leggings dancing around me. I could tell one of them was John Travolta because he was doing all the Saturday Night Fever moves. Then some Indian guy puts his hand over my heart and starts chanting ‘Hum Num Shavai’, you know like in Temple of Doom? That’s the last thing I remember until the other night when a hard copy of Dianetics fell from the top shelf of my library and knocked me unconscious. When I finally came around, my memory returned so I checked on the internet to see what I’d been doing for the last 25 years.


Cruise went on to say that he was crushed by his web search:
Why the hell didn’t anyone tell me I’d gone bat shit crazy? I’ve been jumping on sofas and making mad statements. I mean sure the first Mission Impossible was great but FOUR sequels? I could have played Hamlet god damn it! As for Knight and Day and Oblivion. Back before those freaks took my soul I’d have pissed on those scripts and lit a match. Hopefully it’s not too late to repair the damage I’ve done to my career.
Asked what his upcoming plans were Cruise said he had a full slate.
Well there’s Top Gun 2, Cocktail 2, the Color of Money 2, Rain Man 2, Taps 2, Risky Business 2, All the Right Moves 2, The Outsiders 2 and Born on the 5thof July.  But first I’m off around to Oliver Stone’s house to punch him in face and call him a c*cksucker. 

Tom Cruise will be in 2025.
