Los Angeles: Superstar Tom Cruise has officially signed on to reprise his role as Ethan Hunt in `Mission: Impossible 5` and Christopher McQuarrie may direct the film.

The 50-year-old is officially set for fifth instalment of the action franchise after inking a deal with Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions, reported Deadline.

Cruise could re-team with Christopher McQuarrie - who directed him in last year`s `Jack Reacher` - on the project.

The new film would follow 2011`s hit blockbuster `Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol` which was well received by critics and earned nearly USD 700 million worldwide.

That film was directed by Brad Bird and saw `Avengers` star Jeremy Renner join the franchise while Simon Pegg reprised his role as technician Benji Dunn.

Meanwhile, Paramount and Skydance are also reportedly mulling a sequel to action flick `Jack Reacher`, which grossed over USD 200 million.
