FALSE: Mission: Impossible 5 halts production to improve ending

UPDATE: “Mission: Impossible 5” director Christopher McQuarrie has taken to Twitter to shut down reports of a halt in production as reported by THR yesterday.

 

2/21/2015: With “Mission: Impossible 5” slated for release in just over five months and production still underway, it would seem a remarkable idea to halt filming, right?

Well according to The Hollywood Reporter, production did shut down for about a week in order to allow director Christopher McQuarrie and an unidentified writer to come up with a “new and improved” finale for the blockbuster.

“Chris, Tom [Cruise] and a third person wanted to take a minute to get from what they thought was a good place to a more perfect place,” quotes THR.

So, all eyes on the finale come release time.

“Mission: Impossible 5” is due to hit cinemas on July 31.
