While it’s expected he’ll take on the next MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE instalment, reuniting again with his JACK REACHER lead Tom Cruise, writer/director Christopher McQuarrie will first helm a remake of the Cold War thriller ICE STATION ZEBRA for Warner Bros.

The original 1968 movie, directed by the legendary John Sturges and based on the same-titled, best-selling novel by Alistair McLean, centred on an American Naval submarine attempting to retrieve top secret photographic material with the Russians also hot on their trail. The all-star action-thriller included a cast of Rock Hudson, Ernest Borgnine, Patrick McGoohan and Jim Brown.

Any fans of the original film happy with Oscar-winner McQuarrie onboard?
