The 50-year-old actor has played the role of Ethan Hunt in the spy series since 1996 - with the most recent installment Ghost Protocol released in late 2011 - and even after reprising the role four times he has no intention of retiring the character.
‘‘I started ‘Mission: Impossible’ hoping I could make many of them. It’s a character that I can grow with. At that time it was the most expensive film in the history of Paramount Pictures, and the first film I was producing,” Contactmusic quoted Cruise as telling Total Film magazine.
‘‘It’s been pretty exciting. Seeing an audience respond ... to have that experience is really wonderful. I’ll make a bunch of those. I’ll make as many as people want to see ... because they’re very challenging, and so much fun to make,” he said.
The Hollywood heavyweight also revealed work has already started to try and find locations for Hunt’s return.
“We’re already working on different images. I love travelling around promoting movies because I’m always looking at different places, coming up with different sequences,” he said.
