It was recently revealed that Hollywood superstar Tom is set to reprise the role of spy Ethan Hunt in a fifth film, but plot, cast and crew details were not announced.

However, The Hollywood Reporter said that Drew Pearce, who co-wrote the superhero sequel and has also been working on Guillermo del Toro's upcoming Pacific Rim, is on writing duty.

The industry magazine also reports that Christopher McQuarrie - who was at the helm of Tom's film Jack Reacher - is in discussions to direct.

JJ Abrams' production company Bad Robot will produce the movie.

The Star Trek Into Darkness filmmaker made his film directorial debut on Mission: Impossible III, with Brad Bird making his live-action directing debut on the fourth film, 2011's Ghost Protocol.
