The 53-year-old action star stopped by The Daily Show this week where he that more films in the lucrative series are already in development.
"It's pretty amazing because [Rogue Nation is] the one where I thought, ‘If I could keep making these kinds of movies...,’" Cruise told Jon Stewart.
"If I may, and I don't mean to be presumptuous, but I think you can," Stewart said, laughing. "Do you [have] plans to do another one?"
"Yeah, we're gonna start -- we're starting work on it now. Probably start shooting it next summer," Cruise said.
"How about this one, they drop you in a volcano?" Stewart joked.
Although Stewart makes a good suggestion, Cruise getting dropped into an active volcano is the only step up from him getting strapped to the side of a plane as it takes off.
The first Mission: Impossible film, which was also the first movie Cruise produced, hit screens in 1996. Cruise was 33 years old and eager to do all of his own stunts. It’s almost 20 years later and Cruise is still a producer and still doing his own stunts -- only now they’re way crazier!
