Tom Cruise says they are coming up with ideas for Mission Impossible 5

While it was a little disappointing to hear that Brad Bird would not be returning to do another MISSION IMPOSSIBLE film, I completely agree with his statement about having different directors:

"I think that one of the things that’s fun about the series is that they always pull in a different director and try to get a different kind of take on the premise. I’d probably be open to looking at it, but I think that part of one of the successes of the franchises is that they’re always reassessing it with a new director. That was one of the things that attracted me to it. It’s not a franchise where it was about dismissing your style in order to get the style of the franchise. It was more about [having] each director influence the franchise. Because whatever you think about the films, they don’t look like they were made by the same person. They’re the same premise and the same lead actor and all of that, but they feel like four distinctly different movies, style-wise."

Without Bird, things are moving on according to Tom Cruise, who spoke about his experience with the franchise and future with it in an interview with Total Film, “I started Mission: Impossible hoping I could make many of them. It’s a character that I can grow with. At that time it was the most expensive film in the history of Paramount Pictures, and the first film I was producing. It’s been pretty exciting. I’ll make a bunch of those. I’ll make as many as people want to see... because they’re very challenging, and so much fun to make.”

When asked about ideas on the plot and set-pieces, Cruise said, “We’re already working on different images. Talking conceptually. I love traveling around promoting different movies because I’m always looking at different places, and I always walk around to see the city. I look at architecture, subways… coming up with different sequences.”

Singer or McQuarrie

Either of those two I think can bring an old school spy feel to it. Even making it as comple as Way of The Gun or Ususal Suspects

I have no idea. Lately, it seems that a lot of the best action movies are coming from people you wouldn't expect to do big action movies necessarily (i.e. Sam Mendes) Even Joss Whedon was kind of a wildcard choice for Avengers director, ONLY because he had never really done a big A-list project like that. I think they should maybe go down that route. Or get David Fincher or Chris Nolan or something.

I'd still love to see Joe Carnahan's take on the franchise.

he'd need an R though and they wouldn't give him that. I think he'd feel too... erm... restricted if he had to use a PG-13 heh

@phil - wow totally forgot about that when I was thinking Carnahan. Only Narc, Smokin Aces and the Grey came to mind, forgot about him doing the A-Team, which was actually decent. He could do well with it for sure then

says Michael Mann and I think that would be awesome! A real kick in the ass to the serious style wise and it would be super interesting. Truth be told 1 was different from 2 and that was also different from 3 but stylistically 3 and 4 were kind of similar actually, though I much much much prefer 3. Something way different like Michael Mann would be fantastic, especially considering what him and Cruise accomplished on Collateral.

I'm always up for another Mission Impossible movie. I like Renner, but I'm glad they're keeping Ethan Hunt around as the star. As for directors, I can think of a couple that Cruise worked with before that would be a good fit for MI:5. Either Michael Mann, who I think would deliver a great spy movie closer to De Palma's first movie than the action-oriented (but still awesome) sequels; or Bryan Singer, who has experience with some complex, intriging stories (Usual Suspects) and a team aspect in
