Tom Cruise’s collaboration with Christopher McQuarrie (director of Jack Reacher & Valkyrie) continues, as Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions have announced the fifth installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise has started principal photography. McQuarrie, who also penned the Cruise flick Edge of Tomorrow, wrote the new film with scribes Drew Pearce, Will Staples.

Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol vets Jeremy Renner, along with M:I staples Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames are returning for another round with Ethan Hunt (Cruise). New cast members include Alec Baldwin and Rebecca Ferguson.

Released in December 2011, Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol earned nearly $700 million worldwide, making it Cruise’s highest grossing film of his career.

The new movie will shoot in London, Morocco, and Vienna. Cruise first played Ethan Hunt in 1996’s Mission: Impossible, a Brian De Palma directed feature which had Hunt going toe to toe with previous M:I icon Jim Phelps (Jon Voight).
