Report: ‘Mission Impossible’ Sequel Delayed While Tom Cruise And Studio Haggle Over Salary

The next “Mission Impossible” sequel has reportedly hit a roadblock due to a monetary disagreement between the studio and Tom Cruise, who allegedly don’t see eye to eye on his salary.

Filming on the latest entry in the franchise was scheduled to begin early next year, with “Rogue Nation” writer-director and producer JJ Abrams both on board.

However, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Cruise and the studio, Paramount Pictures, have not been able to come to terms with how big a slice of the film’s eventual profits the actor will ultimately take in, with Cruise reportedly seeing the same lucrative deal he received for his upcoming reboot of “The Mummy”.

Paramount was originally said to be looking at a late 2017 release for “Mission: Impossible 6”, but for the time being no release date has been set.
