Iron Man 3 co-writer Drew Pearce just nabbed the scriptwriting spot for 's upcoming Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the writer -- who also has a credit with 's Pacific Rim -- will be supported by in the director's chair and 's production company, Bad Robot.
Cruise will not only be starring, but will also be producing. Production is set to begin filming after Warner Bros. The Man From U.N.C.L.E., this fall.
This will make for a really intresting result; with some blockbustery pre-summer and summer action tentpoles under his belt, this could erase the blah memory of a flaccid Ghotocol and make for the most explodey and exciting M:I movie to date.
