Tom Cruise has confirmed 'Mission: Impossible 6' is in pre-production stages.

The 'Edge of Tomorrow' star was promoting the current 'Mission: Impossible - Rouge Nation', while on America's 'The Daily Show' when he shared progress has been made on the next film in the franchise.

He said: ''We're starting to work on it now. We'll probably start shooting it next summer.''

However, Paramount are yet to comment on the actor's claims.

Meanwhile, the 53-year-old actor also hinted it would be ''fun'' to reprise his role in 'Top Gun'.

He shared: ''It would be fun. I would like to get back into those jets.''

But he previously said he would only want to take the role back if it's shot ''like the first one''

Tom said: ''It would have to be practical. I don't want any CGI jets. I want to shoot it like how we shot the first one.''

The film's producer, David Ellison also commented on a possible 'Top Gun 2' and Tom Cruise starring in it again.

He shared: ''I think this is a movie that should be in 3D and in Imax, and again something that you can shoot practically. As everyone knows with Tom, he is 100% going to want to be in those airplanes, shooting it practically.''
