    Weird. That article was almost on the right track.

    Renner got the role which was meant to take over from Cruise. We all know that didn’t exactly go down the way they thought.

    I often wonder if those rumors about Brenner were even true. In the first half of Ghost Protocol. Brandt was played as comic relief. Hardly the heir to the keys of the kingdom.

    There were lots of reshoots and on set script changes that from what I’ve read they kind of changed their mind mid-way shooting on the whole passing the torch thing.

    Tom Cruise Really Was Supposed to Step Aside After 'Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol'

    Didn't any of them hold up? Is that why they went with Jeremy Renner instead?

    This makes sense. Cruise WAS going to leave the role.
    I think GP would have been a good final film for Cruise, with him climbing the skyscraper.

    I wonder why, though, they suddenly wanted Tom to keep the role. Was it actually his own wish?

    Cruise realized there were more cool stunts he hadn't done yet. :)

    Wish I could double-like your post :) :)

    He will be the first movie star to film out in space, unfortunately not in the M:I franchise.
    What's next step? To have him do an action sequence on the Moon? Or even better, on Mars.
    Imagine the difficulties and how much it will cost.

    Maybe he needs to keep his feet on the (Earth) ground :funny:

    How’s this for comparison. Anthony Hopkins was 63 when he was in Mission Impossible 2. That’s only 5 years older than Cruise is now.

    So, any bets on Henry’s August Walker returning?

    Nah. He dead. And it's not like Henry was ever the draw for these movies, so there's no reason to consider bringing him back.

    Yeah it’s clear that Solomon Lane is the main antagonist in these movies.

    I’m referring to the recent interview with Christopher McQuarrie where he said the below quote. That combined with Henry growing the moustache again, I doubt it’s coincidental. I mean he got rid of it ASAP once he could. So it’s not like it’s his thing to rock that thing around on his free time.

    Also, who said this would be the character brought back from the dead? There’s plenty they can do with the character that occurred before he encountered the IMF. I wouldn’t bet against this.

    Interview and quote from it:
    Episode One Hundred - Christopher McQuarrie, Simon Pegg, Hayley Atwell, and Lorne Balfe — LIGHT THE FUSE PODCAST

    I mean, I'm not against it, I just don't see the need, or think it's particularly likely.

    Also, he should be proud of that mustache and want to rock it again. It's the best he's ever looked, dammit.

    That moustache comment was priceless! I do agree. He definitely had that European bad guy look you used to see in classic spy movies.

    Plus we now know how Christopher McQuarrie likes connecting things to precious movies and past characters. The biggest giveaway is Solomon Lane, Ethan’s wife Julia, heck even his boss from the Brian De Palma movie.

    Really looking forward to see what he’s got in store for us!

    True, I wouldn't put it past him to include a Walker flashback or something if the new villain has ties to him.

    Ha, and how old will Cruise be by the time he’s finished filming these? It’s very impressive to still be up to doing all that at that age.

    Which means Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs was a few years younger than Cruise now, which feels... insane.

    Any character can return... via the face mask and voice tech they've got. McQ is being coy. :p

    Another comparison, I think Jon Voight in the first film is Tom Cruise's age now.

    Tom Cruise is now Mr. Phelps!
