Production on ‘Mission: Impossible 5’, which was shut down for a week to write a new climax, has now resumed and is currently in the process of filming the revised ending.
It was reported earlier that director Christopher McQuarrie, lead star Tom Cruise, and a third unidentified writer took a week to improve the ending, reported Entertainment Weekly.
The short hiatus of the ‘Mission: Impossible 5’ is not going to put any impact on the release date and will hit theatres on July 31.
‘Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol’, the last film in the franchise, released in 2011 and set new box-office records for the series.
It’s not the first time Paramount executives have chosen to change the ending of a film at late notice. Director Marc Forster had to scramble to reshoot the final third of Brad Pitt’s ‘World War Z’ in 2013 after test audience reacted negatively to its original conclusion.
