There is less than five months remaining until the scheduled release date of the highly-anticipated spy film, Mission: Impossible 5.
However, there has not been very much information released online about the new adventures of Ethan Hunt and the gang.
No trailer has been leaked online yet for Mission: Impossible 5(not even a teaser.) No confirmed villain background stories or plot details have been confirmed. There are so many questions about the follow-up to the hit 2011 film, Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol but hardly any answers — until now.
Director Christopher McQuarrie hosted his own brief Q&A session for 30 minutes on Twitter Saturday to finally provide answers to some of the many questions that have been circling the minds of Mission: Impossible fans around the world.
By request, an MI5 #McQAndA. Please hashtag your questions. I have 30 minutes. Go.

Here are the important details that were revealed and confirmed via tweets by McQuarrie during that relatively quick Q&A session.
Rumors About the Ending
As previously reported by numerous sources, including the Inquisitr, rumors circulated earlier this year about the ending of Mission: Impossible 5 having to be completely reworked and filmed over. McQuarrie squashed those rumors by saying that the movie’s ending simply needed to be prepared and is currently being filmed now in London.
The Official Movie Subtitle And Trailer
As of right now, the fifth installment of the blockbuster franchise does not have an official subtitle. However, McQuarrie confirmed during the Q&A that the official subtitle and first trailer will be released soon.
During the Mission: Impossible 5 Q&A session, McQuarrie also confirmed that actresses Paula Patton and Maggie Q will not be reprising their respective roles in the new film. However, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, and Jeremy Renner are all returning to the franchise in the new film, along with actor Sean Harris as the villain.
The Biggest Challenge
When asked to identify the biggest challenge of filming Mission: Impossible 5, the Jack Reacher director did not hesitate to admit that time was his biggest challenge. In January, 2015, Variety confirmed that Paramount Studios moved the premiere of Mission: Impossible 5 forward five months — giving the film its current release date of July 31. It is not surprising that the five-month reduction has added stress to an already stressful workload for the cast and crew — especially McQuarrie.
A Touch of Nostalgia
McQuarrie also revealed during the Q&A session that Mission: Impossible 5 would have a very nostalgic feel — especially for fans of the 1996 original film directed by Brian de Palma. In addition to the new movie giving an abundance of “nods” to the original movie, according to Collider, McQuarrie states that the film is also going to flow more like an episode of the original 1960s television series.
