TOM CRUISE AND CHRISTOPHER MCQUARRIE TO COLLABORATE ON THREE FILMS



Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick (Certified Ferrsh at 96%) has now soared over $1.3 billion globally, even as the star has recently filmed Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One (7/14/2023), and is now filming that franchise’s eighth film, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two (6/28/2024). Both of the latter films are being directed by Christopher McQuarrie, who is also working with Cruise on three more projects, all of which McQuarrie is also writing. Tom Cruise will likely be dancing in two of them, as one is a “song and dance” musical with Cruise as the lead, and another is a Les Grossman solo spin-off project. Cruise originated his sleazy studio executive Les Grossman character in 2008’s Tropic Thunder (Certified Fresh at 82%), in which he also showed off his fat suit dance moves. The third upcoming collaboration between McQuarrie and Cruise is described as an action movie with the potential for branching into its own franchise. Also looming in Cruise’s future is the untitled project he will actually film in outer space, in collaboration with NASA and Elon Musk’s SpaceX. None of these four films have release dates, but they’re all likely for 2025 or later.
