Tom Cruise to tackle another 'Mission: Impossible'

Tom Cruise has signed on to reprise his role as secret agent Ethan Hunt in a fifth "Mission: Impossible" movie. The 50-year-old Hollywood icon will star in the upcoming blockbuster and also serve as producer, reports Deadline.

He is expected to reteam with Oscar-winning filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie, who directed Cruise in last year's "Jack Reacher" and penned the screenplay for his Nazi drama "Valkyrie."

The fourth installment in the franchise, "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," pulled in more than $600 million at the international box office back in 2011, and Cruise revealed he was already dreaming up another sequel.

He said, "I'll make as many as people want to see, because they're very challenging and so much fun to make. We're already working on different images (and) talking conceptually."

Meanwhile, McQuarrie has also been hired to adapt Alistair McLean's classic thriller "Ice Station Zebra" for a big screen remake, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

McQuarrie is also slated to direct the film, which was originally released in 1968 -- and starred Rock Hudson and Ernest Borgnine.

Ghost Protocol made $600 Mil?  By all means, keep making them.  You'd be dumb not to.

I enjoyed Ghost Protocol. If that same cast returned, I would definitely go see it.

Tom Cruise, not the greatest actor but his movies are great. They beat out any films of the same genre by far including 007
