Believe it or not Tom Cruise is back in business with Paramount Pictures, after they pretty much forced him off the studio lot after Mission Impossible 3. J.J. Abrams is also officially on board as a producer on the film for now, not sure if he will be directing again or not. He is probably the only reason Paramount is up for working with Cruise again, without his I doubt this would have ever happened. They have brought in Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec to write the screenplay for the fourth installment of Mission Impossible. This will be there first time writing for a feature film, they have worked on TV shows such as Life on Mars, October Road, Alias, and Fastlane. hey have obviously worked with Abrams before, which is how they got the gig. They will write the script based on a story that Abrams wrote with them, so it looks like Abrams has got something cool up his sleeve. Abrams says of the writers:
"I’ve been looking forward to working with Josh and Andre again for years. Their sense of balance between character and action is wonderful, which I know is hugely important to Tom as well. We’re off to an exciting start, so, as usual, fingers crossed."
They are looking to get the movie released sometime in 2011. I really enjoyed the third Mission Impossible film, and I hope they can bring the same kind of awesomness to the fourth one. I don't have any probelems with another Mission Impossible film as long as it is good, and entertaining. But, the movie is movie forward and it is going to happen, so are you ready for Ethan Hunt to go on his most impossible mission yet?
