While we still wait on official word of whether or not Christopher McQuarrie will direct Mission: Impossible 5, the filmmaker has been tapped to write and direct a remake of Ice Station Zebra for Warner Bros.

The original classic debuted in 1968, starring Rock Hudson, Ernest Borgnine, Patrick McGoohan, and Jim Brown. Adapted from the novel of the same name by Alistair McLean, Ice Station Zebra followed the crew of an American submarine, in a race against a Russian sub to recover sensitive materials in the Arctic.

Since there is no concrete timetable set for both Ice Station Zebra and Mission: Impossible 5, it remains to be see how the scheduling will play out. The filmmaker has not been confirmed to take the helm on Mission: Impossible 5, but he is believed to be a front runner for the job. Christopher McQuarrie most recently directed Mission: Impossible 5 star Tom Cruise in Jack Reacher.

Ice Station Zebra was released October 23rd, 1968 and stars Rock Hudson, Ernest Borgnine, Patrick McGoohan, Jim Brown, Tony Bill, Lloyd Nolan, Alf Kjellin, Gerald S. O'Loughlin. The film is directed by John Sturges.
