Christoper McQuarrie, director of Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, went to Twitter to signal that the post-production of the fifth M:I film has finished post production.
The director gave periodic updates on the production, starring and produced by Tom Cruise, on Twitter. The film originally was scheduled for a Dec. 25 release. But Paramount moved up the movie to July 31.
In early 2013, Cruise had been approached to play Napoleon Solo for a movie version of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Cruise, though, exited that project by May 2013 after Paramount secured his services for the new M:I project. Cruise’s exit paved the way for actor Henry Cavill to play Solo. The U.N.C.L.E movie debuts Aug. 14, two weeks after Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation.
Anyway, take a look for yourself at the director’s tweet. Mission: Impossible is the next major release in 2015’s Year of the Spy:
