Tom Cruise has revealed two Mission: Impossible films are in development.

The actor revealed the details of the upcoming movies on Twitter, sharing a video showing the franchise’s logo with fuses burning at either side.

Cruise wrote in the caption: “Summer 2021 and Summer 2022.”

Christopher McQuarrie will be returning to direct the films, having previously worked on 2015’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and last year’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout.

McQuarrie, who is also working with Cruise on the upcoming Top Gun sequel, tweeted to confirm his involvement.

He wrote: “Missions: Accepted #MissionImpossible.”

Fallout was a commercial success and grossed 791 million US dollars (£614 million) worldwide, a record for the franchise and Cruise.

Mission: Impossible is an action movie franchise based on agent Ethan Hunt, played by Cruise.

The first film arrived in 1996 while Fallout was the sixth instalment.

Cruise, 56, famously performs his own stunts in the films and broke his ankle while filming scenes for Fallout.
