Call of Duty” Scribe Pens “Mission: Impossible 5

Will Staples, best known for his writing work on video game hits like “Need for Speed: Rivals” and “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3,” has been hired to write the script for a fifth “Mission: Impossible” at Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions.

Drew Pearce was originally attached to pen the script before Christopher McQuarrie came on board to direct back in October. It isn’t known if Staples is performing a re-write or starting from scratch.

Tom Cruise is reprising his role as IMF agent Ethan Hunt, and Simon Pegg has revealed that he is also returning. It’s presently unknown if the two key other ‘Ghost Protocol’ cast members, Jeremy Renner or Paula Patton, will also be back.

It has been rumored though that Jessica Chastain has been offered a role.
