Tom Cruise is going to quit the Mission: Impossible franchise, according to Simon Pegg, to explore “completely different” innovative chances. Cruise has a reputation for pushing himself in his performances by performing his stunts, some of which have included risking death. And Pegg has been present for many of them, having played Benji Dunn in every Mission: Impossible movie from the 2006 original. The Boys star was questioned if he would anticipate himself working with Cruise again after Mission: Impossible, any time that may be, during an earlier interview with The Independent.
“I don’t know,” he said. “I love working with Tom, and he’s really good fun to work with but I get the feeling that when Tom goes off and does other things, it’ll be a completely different thing.” “He has a whole other age to come in his career,” he elaborated. “He’s a very good actor, a very, very good actor — as we’ve seen in Magnolia and Jerry Maguire… I think when he finally stops jumping off shit, he’ll have a third act. And yes, it’d be nice to be a part of that.”
Since the 1986 film Top Gun, Cruise has been pushing the boundaries of his acting and physical capabilities in an attempt to experience the rush of performing his stunts. However, the action actor has no intention of leaving his role as Ethan Hunt shortly. Cruise revealed previously this year that he hopes to continue creating Mission: Impossible films well into his 80s, much like Harrison Ford did with the Indiana Jones flicks. In an interview from July, Cruise stated to the Sydney Morning Herald, “Harrison Ford is a legend. I hope to be still going, I’ve got 20 years to catch up with him. hope to keep making Mission: Impossible films until I’m his age.”
