Mission: Impossible 5 - Find Out When And Where It Shoots image
Mission: Impossible 5 currently has several major pieces in place. It痴 scheduled for release on December 25, 2015. It will be helmed by Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher), and will have franchise staple Tom Cruise back in the lead role. There were rumors that the movie would break new ground by filming in the Houses of Parliament, and Mission: Impossible co-star Simon Pegg shared information that brings that rumor a little closer to fact.

We spoke with Simon Pegg this afternoon on behalf of his self-reflection journey dramedy Hector and the Search for Happiness. Before signing off, I asked him if he knew when he would begin filming the fifth installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise, where he値l reprise his role as Benji Dunn. Pegg confirmed:
"We池e all ready to go on August 24, which is what I知 being told. Which is why I知 here doing a little press right now, and I知 available because I might become unavailable very soon. As far as I know, we池e all set to go. We致e got location work first, and then the bulk of the filming will be in Leavesden [Studios], north of London. It痴 a nice one for me, to be near home."

Quick timeout. There were rumors a while back that Christopher McQuarrie痴 Mission: Impossible 5 would be the first movie to actually film inside the Houses of Parliament. (Metro UK reported this back in June.) The paper claims this would be an historic accomplishment, though its one that Simon Pegg couldn稚 exactly confirm. He told us:
I can稚 confirm that because I haven稚 been told. But we are shooting in London, so it would make sense, if they were looking to film in places like that, that it would be the case. I don稚 know for definite, but I do know that we are shooting on location in London, so that should be the case. Which would be great."

Simon Pegg can tell you that shooting on location helps bring an added thrill to the Mission: Impossible sequels. After all, he was a part of the amazing Burj Khalifa scene for Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol.



How will they top that? No idea. But I know that I知 dying to see them try when Mission: Impossible 5 opens in theaters on Christmas Day next year.
