The cast for the next two Mission: Impossible movies has just added some star power. Pom Klementieff, best known for her role as Mantis in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has been tapped for a role in both Mission: Impossible 7 and Mission: Impossible 8. We learned earlier this year that Paramount Pictures had locked down a deal with both star Tom Cruise and writer/director Christopher McQuarrie to shoot both installments back-to-back. Now, Klementieff is poised to get in on the action.

‘Punisher’ Star Jon Bernthal Says ‘It’s a Crime’ Not to Have Oscars for Stunt Performers

‘Punisher’ Star Jon Bernthal Says ‘It’s a Crime’ Not to Have Oscars for Stunt Performers
Add Jon Bernthal’s name to the list of directors and actors who believe the Academy should give stunt performers their own Oscars category. Bernthal starred as Frank Castle/Punisher in Netflix’s Marvel drama series “The Punisher,” which ran for two seasons before being cancelled earlier this year. The comic book series made it clear to Bernthal just how instrumental the work of stunt performers is to a show or film’s success. In a recent interview with Men’s Health magazine (via CinemaBlend), Bernthal lobbied for the Academy to create an Oscar for stunt work.

“They’re my brothers, they’re the people I’m closest with on set. I think it’s absolutely a crime there’s not an Academy Award for stunt performers,” Bernthal said. “The stunt community, they’re the ones really putting it on the line. The creativity that comes out of the stunt community is mind-boggling.

Robert Evans Remembered by Francis Ford Coppola: ‘May the Kid Always Stay in the Picture’
Francis Ford Coppola, Brett Morgen, actress Ali MacGraw and many more are mourning the Monday death of Robert Evans, the legendary film producer and Paramount Pictures chief in the ’60s and ’70s.

Coppola honored Evans for his contributions to “The Godfather” films when he was at Paramount and for his help as an independent producer on Coppola’s “The Cotton Club” from 1984.

“I remember Bob Evans’ charm, good looks, enthusiasm, style, and sense of humor. He had strong instincts as evidenced by the long list of great films in his career,” Coppola said in a statement to TheWrap. “When I worked with Bob, some of his helpful ideas included suggesting John Marley as Woltz and Sterling Hayden as the Police Captain, and his ultimate realization that ‘The Godfather’ could be 2 hours and 45 minutes in length; also, making a movie out of ‘The Cotton Club’ — casting Richard Gere and Gregory Hines,

In a recent interview with Cbm, director Doug Liman revealed that he has completed a script for a sequel to Edge of Tomorrow, and is basically just waiting for Tom Cruise’s schedule to clear up. But nailing that specific window of Cruise availability, and hoping it syncs up with the schedule of his Edge of Tomorrow costar Emily Blunt, may prove to be a... challenging mission? Cruise is currently locked down filming back-to-back Mission: Impossible sequels with writer-director Christopher McQuarrie.

The Script For Edge Of Tomorrow 2 is Complete and Doug Liman Hopes to Start Shooting After Mission: Impossible 8

The first film turned out so good, that the excitement for a sequel is high. The fans want this movie to happen and it’s one step closer to becoming a reality.

Earlier this year we learned that the movie was going to development under the title Live, Die, Repeat and Repeat, and now director Doug Liman has revealed that the script is complete. During an interview with Cbm, the filmmaker was asked about the script and he said, “Yeah, The script is ready.”

Edge Of Tomorrow 2 Script Now Complete And Ready To Shoot

Edge of Tomorrow is a really underrated movie. It’s got giant mechs fighting monsters, a bizarre Groundhog Day-esque plot, one of Bill Paxton’s final roles and Tom Cruise pulling some exceptionally silly faces. The only flaw is its dull as dishwater title, which was changed at the last minute from the excellent Live. Die. Repeat (and then there’s the even cooler original title All You Need Is Kill).

Anyhow, the film was released to a relatively warm critical reception, but didn’t exactly set the box office on fire, making $370 million on a budget of $178 million. So not a flop, but not great, either. Still, it’s enough to warrant more and now, we’re hearing that Edge of Tomorrow 2 is finally getting ready to head into production.

Director Doug Liman spoke about the project’s status while on the press tour for Impulse and explained that “Yeah,

Edge of Tomorrow 2 Script Is Ready, May Shoot After Mission: Impossible 8
We've got a bit of a good news, bad news update on Edge of Tomorrow 2. The good news? Director Doug Liman still wants to make the movie and it even has a script! The bad news? If it happens, it's going to be quite some time, as Tom Cruise has two Mission: Impossible movies to finish before he'll have time to get around to this already long-awaited sequel. Cruise, for the moment is, understandably, going with the hot hand.

Doug Liman is currently promoting the new season of his series Impulse. During a recent interview, he was asked about the status of Edge of Tomorrow 2. For starters, he was asked if the plan was to get this one up and running after Tom Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie finish up work on Mission: Impossible 7 and Mission: Impossible 8, which will be shot back-to-back. Here's what Liman had to say about it.
