The next film will mark the sixth installment in the action franchise, which started in 1996 and is based on a 1960s TV series.

“Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” — opens Friday with Cruise’s Impossible Missions Force being dismantled by the U.S. government but carrying on anyway to save the world. It co-stars Baldwin, Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner and Ving Rhames.
