Christopher McQuarrie will be returning to direct the films. He previously worked on 2015’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, and last year’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout.
McQuarrie, who is also working with Cruise on the upcoming Top Gun sequel, tweeted to confirm his involvement. He wrote: “Missions: Accepted #MissionImpossible.”
Fallout was a commercial success and grossed $791 million (£614 million) worldwide, a record for the franchise and Cruise.
Mission: Impossible is an action movie franchise based on agent Ethan Hunt, played by Cruise. The first film arrived in 1996 while Fallout was the sixth instalment.
Cruise, 56, famously performs his own stunts in the films and broke his ankle while filming scenes for Fallout.
