Christopher McQuarrie has announced he'll return to direct, and presumably write, "Mission: Impossible 6."
"Mission: Accepted," the filmmaker wrote this morning in a Twitter post accompanied by the hashtag "MI6."
The involvement of McQuarrie, who wrote and directed the blockbuster "Mission: Impossible -- Rogue Nation," isn't much of a surprise: A report surfaced less than two weeks ago that Paramount Pictures and producer Skydance Productions wanted him behind the camera for the next installment of the franchise.
Considering McQuarrie's relationship with Tom Cruise -- they've worked together on four films -- and "Rogue Nation's" $682 million worldwide box office, it's easy to see why everyone involved is eager for a reunion.
Cruise will of course reprise his role as Ethan Hunt in "Mission: Impossible 6," which arrives in 2017.
