Christopher McQuarrie has confirmed a Twitter that Alec Baldwin will be in Mission: Imposible 5.
This is the second time Tom and Alec will work together, the first one was in ‘Rock of Ages’.
Cinema Blend has spoken with Simon Pegg this afternoon on behalf of his self-reflection journey dramedy Hector and the Search for Happiness. Before signing off, they asked him if he knew when he would begin filming the fifth installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise, where he’ll reprise his role as Benji Dunn. Pegg confirmed:
“We’re all ready to go on August 24, which is what I’m being told. Which is why I’m here doing a little press right now, and I’m available – because I might become unavailable very soon. As far as I know, we’re all set to go. We’ve got location work first, and then the bulk of the filming will be in Leavesden [Studios], north of London. It’s a nice one for me, to be near home.”
Quick timeout. There were rumors a while back that Christopher McQuarrie’s Mission: Impossible 5 would be the first movie to actually film inside the Houses of Parliament, though Simon Pegg couldn’t exactly confirm. He said:
I can’t confirm that because I haven’t been told. But we are shooting in London, so it would make sense, if they were looking to film in places like that, that it would be the case. I don’t know for definite, but I do know that we are shooting on location in London, so that should be the case. Which would be great.”
Tom has attended Ladies Day at Glorious Goodwood in Chichester, England today. We’ll have tons of HQ’s soon. We’ve added more than 300 pics.
