Paramount Taps Iron Man 3 Co-writer for MI: 5

Considering that British screenwriter Drew Pearce’s last project, Iron Man 3, posted the second highest opening weekend in US box office history, it is hardly surprising that high profile Hollywood offers are starting to arrive at his doorstep.

Perhaps thinking that Pearce can bring the same cash-flavored magic to their film, the folks over at Paramount has recently hired Drew Pearce to take on the next installment of spy action mega-franchise Mission Impossible.

While the project has yet to announce a director, lead star Tom Cruise has already confirmed his return, fresh off a successful stint in Ghost Protocol, which earned somewhere near the $700m range.
