Tom Cruise teased another “Mission: Impossible” movie while appearing on “The Daily Show” on Tuesday night.
“We’re starting to work on it now,” Cruise told Jon Stewart. “We’ll probably start shooting it next summer.”
The sequel news came at the end of an interview during which the action star, who reprises his role as Ethan Hunt in “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” on Friday, gave the Comedy Central host some workout tips.
“You’re shirtless in some of this,” Stewart said. “You’re older than me, and I don’t take off my shirt even to shower!”
When Stewart asked the actor how many hours he puts in at the gym, Cruise said he spends “months training” for intense action sequences and stunts her pulls off in the “Mission: Impossible” movies.
“Let’s say I’m not doing a mission that’s impossible… I’m doing a mission that’s intermediate to beginner,” Stewart joked.
Cruise said that a good place to start is to look at his die, and “start out going for a walk.”
Stewart also asked the 53-year-old actor about his “vulnerable days,” and that he would like to see him in more dramatic projects.
“Remember yearning Tom Cruise, vulnerable Tom Cruise, ‘you complete me’ Tom Cruise?” Stewart asked, hinting at previous Cruise projects like “Jerry Maguire.” “Where’s that guy? Now it’s all, you’re hanging onto planes and shooting aliens.”
Cruise said his character is plenty vulnerable in the fifth installment of the action franchise, and added that he thought his character in “Edge of Tomorrow” was “pretty vulnerable” and a “total coward.”
