The sixth instalment of Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible franchise is back on track.

Pre-production on Mission: Impossible 6 was halted last month due to a salary dispute between the Hollywood star and Paramount Pictures.

The issue related to back-end profits. Cruise reportedly demanded a pay equal or higher to what Universal was offering him for starring in the upcoming monster flick, The Mummy.

Well, apparently Cruise is getting the amount he was after, with THR reporting that the dilemma has been resolved and M:I6 is being put back on the production path. The new start is scheduled for around March/April next year.

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation director and writer Christopher McQuarrie is back at the helm for sixth chapter, which will also see Rebecca Ferguson reprising her role as Ilsa Faust.

Cruise will next be seen in Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, arriving in Australia on October 20 and hitting the U.S. on October 21.
