Los Angeles: Actor Tom Cruise is set to return to the film Mission: Impossible 6, following reports of dispute over the deal-making that halted pre-production earlier this year.
The 54-year-old actor will seal the deal with Paramount Pictures to reprise his role as Ethan Hunt in the action thriller, says Hollywood Reporter.
The pre-production was reportedly halted last month due to an alleged dispute between Tom Cruise and the studio over his salary.
Previously, the project, which was originally planned to kick off production in November, was delayed due to script issues. Now the production is expected to begin in January next year.
Christopher McQuarrie, who provided the screenplay of and helmed Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, is once again on board to direct the sixth film in the series and help with the script. Actress Rebecca Ferguson is set to reprise her role as Ilsa Faust.
Tom Cruise has other projects in development, including Top Gun 2 and Luna Park. He will also feature in Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, which is set to release in October.
