Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible 4 just landed another great new cast member! LOST star Josh Holloway is currently in negotiations to join Tom Cruise and Jeremey Renner in the film. Holloway will end up playing one of the members of Ehtan Hunt's Impossible Mission Force.
The cast also includes Paula Patton and Vladimir Mashkov as well as franchise vets Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg.
J.J. Abrams is producing the film, he also came up with the story that ended up being adapted into a screenplay by Andre Nemec and Josh Appelbaum. There is still no information on what the story for this fourth film will entail, but I'm sure it will be fun.
This will actually be the first major studio film for Holloway, who as you know spent six seasons playing the character Sawyer on LOST, which Abrams was also executive producer on.
M:I4 will start shooting in Fall in Vancouver, Prague and Dubai doe a December 2011 release. I'm looking forward to this movie! It's seems to be coming together very well as far as the talent that has been brought on board to develop it.
