M:I4 gets official

06.17.2009

We heard the rumor the other day, and the mission has officially been accepted.

JJ Abrams and Tom Cruise will attempt to light the wick again on MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 4 for Paramount. The collaboration won't be as extensive as M:I3 -- at the moment Abrams is only on board to produce, since he's going to be busy with his successfully relaunched STAR TREK franchise and the dozen or so TV shows and other film projects he's producing. 

Despite previous reports, the duo apparently doesn't have a clear direction for another convoluted espionage tale -- they may stick with the ensemble approach of the original series, or have Cruise's superagent Ethan Hunt acting as mentor to a young new IMF crew. Either way, they'll probably all be chasing something with a catchy name but inevitably superfluous to the plot. (We have to get the "Toothpick"! Tell me where the "Charm Bracelet" is!?)

The studio is hoping for a 2011 release date, which seems hugely optimistic considering Abrams' schedule and Cruise's interest in a handful of other high-profile projects.

Extra Tidbit: Even Cruise playing a Nazi made $200 million worldwide.

Valkyrie

I thought Valkyrie was a fantastic movie. Well told story, very tense and engaging. I personally can get over the Tom Cruise factor and focus on purely his acting ability which is top notch regardless of what you think about him. I do think this teaming will be a great idea, and hopefully they can think of something fresh for MI4 that keeps all the fans satisfied

JJ Abrams fucking sucks. He deserves very little of the praise he's getting. I'm happy Tom Cruise will star in a high profile movie once again tough.

This sounds good to me...

I really hope they don't do that Ethan training a younger group of agents. Where did you get that info from Joblo? And out of curiousity, why IN GENERAL are you guys so in favor of passing the torch stories? First Ghostbusters, now this too? Christ, these actors aren't that old here. And why the Tom Cruise hate? Oh, I forgot since he's a scientologist that he's no longer a good actor and all his movies are now terrible. Out of all seriousness, I hope they make this. I like how each movie has

I like how each movie has had a different style so far, that's such an awesome concept that no other franchise has done before. I just hope they don't get somebody like John Woo again. I don't know who they could get, but somebody who isn't going to just copy what worked in M:i:III.

I like this!

I would like to see another, as M:I-3 proved to be not only the best of the trilogy, but ends Ethan Hunt on a good note.


I hope they bring back Ving Rhames and/or Jonathan Rhys Myers (I thought Maggie Q was an okay addition), and I hope they introduce a new IMF agent to take over for Cruise.

My suggestion would be Jonathan's "Tudors" co-star: Natalie Dormer. She's young, a virtual unknown, and would make a great replacement if the series should continue.

Sweet. I liked MI-3 and after seeing what JJ Abrams did for Star Trek, I'm sure he and Cruise can top MI-3

SPOILER!

Just found out the plot to Mission Impossible 4. Ethan Hunt attempts to re-write the G.I. Joe movie into something worth watching.

It's finally good to know Tom Cruise is actually making another movie, not just thinking about it. Even if the last one arguably sunk him (the movie was good, but I think people just wanted to punish the man for making as ass of himself).

Wonder who they'll get to direct this puppy. That's what I wanna know.
