Both Tom and director Christopher McQuarrie confirmed the next two installments of the action films will be filmed back-to-back, scheduled to arrive in two and three years' time. Cruise has starred in all the six installments as IMF agent Ethan Hunt.

Besides Cruise, there is no word on casting yet. However, Ving Rhames, the only other person to star in all six so far as Luther Stickell is expected to return. Simon Pegg, who played technician Benji Dunn in the most recent four, is also likely to reprise the role.
