Brad Bird Out Of Mission Impossible 5?
It would appear though that he's less enthused about continuing in the role; he told Crave "I think that one of the things that's fun about the series is that they always pull in a different director and try to get a different kind of take on the premise.""I'd probably be open to looking at it, but I think that part of one of the successes of the franchises is that they're always reassessing it with a new director. That was one of the things that attracted me to it. It's not a franchise where it was about dismissing your style in order to get the style of the franchise. It was more about [having] each director influence the franchise," he continued, adding "Because whatever you think about the Mission: Impossible films, they don't look like they were made by the same person. They're the same premise and the same lead actor and all of that, but they feel like four distinctly different movies, style-wise." Bird makes a good point, but a sombre one too; whoever does replace him will have tough boots to fill.
