Tom Cruise talks Mission: Impossible 5

Tom Cruise is named Icon Of Our Life time in issue 200 of Total Film magazine , and inside we chat in depth with the man himself on his movie past, present and future.

The world’s biggest movie actor is this month's cover star, and you can read the complete feature inside the latest issue (available for just £1.99 on your iPad) (opens in new tab) .

Cruise chats about all of his upcoming films, including Jack Reacher , Van Helsing , and the long-mooted Top Gun 2 . And we also pressed him on the possibility of another Mission: Impossible installment, not least as Ghost Protocol was Cruise’s biggest hit to date.

On the fourquel’s success, Cruise told us, “Seeing an audience respond… to have that experience is really wonderful.

“I started Mission: Impossible hoping I could make many of them. It’s a character that I can grow with. At that time it was the most expensive film in the history of Paramount Pictures, and the first film I was producing.

“It’s been pretty exciting. I’ll make a bunch of those. I’ll make as many as people want to see... because they’re very challenging, and so much fun to make.”

Any ideas for the plot and set-pieces? “We’re already working on different images. Talking conceptually. I love travelling around promoting different movies because I’m always looking at different places, and I always walk around to see the city. I look at architecture, subways… coming up with different sequences.”

Jack Reacher
opens in the UK on 26 December 2012.
