The Incredibles director Brad Bird talks about moving on to live-action with Not-MI:4

02.07.2011

At this weekend's (Disney/Pixar-boycotted) Annie Awards, director Brad Bird received a Winsor McCay award celebrating his work on IRON GIANT, THE INCREDIBLES and RATATOUILLE.

Bird couldn't be present because he's currently filming MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL, but he sent his thanks in a videotaped acceptance speech from the set of the movie.

The presentation's recap of his career is below, after which Bird cheerfully discusses his easy but final transition from animation to working with lifelike actors such as Tom Cruise -- check out exactly what he has to say at the 4:30 mark below.

Why am I so excited for this?

I can't believe how secret they've managed to keep MI4 and it's actually making me very curious to see what they're up to with this one. If the comment below is true and Wally Pfister really said that, than color me truly excited for the first time in this franchise. I've always thought the MI films have been too small for they're own good. This one needs to be on a scale of epic proportion.

That was genuinely funny

Love Brad Bird. Iron Giant is awesome.

BTW - Wally Pfister recently said Bird has an amazing widescreen/IMAX vision for MI4 - seriously can't wait

LMAO!

OMG! That was great! I laughed until I had tears in my eyes. Cruise is still da man! I just watched Knight & Day the other "night" too. I thought is was great. I can't believe so many people dissed it. Cruise was hilarious and made Diaz tolerable.

Cruise was great in it... but the movie itself died about halfway through. The movie ended up sucking, Cruise did not.

Awesome

Incredibles and Ratatouile were very good. And I see that MI4 will be equally as good.
Plus, its Tom F***ing Cruise we have here people.

Will always be a fan of Brad Bird. Director of arguably the two best animated films I've ever seen in Iron Giant and The Incredibles. And no, you can't beat simon pegg and tom f***ing cruise holding guns to someones head. Hilarious!!

Genius

This is the most clever, hilarious prank ever. Tom Cruise just scored major cool points in my book.

Brad Bird is the man. The Incredibles and Ratatouille were both awesome animated movies and I can't wait to see what he does with Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.

I'd like to see a Incredibles sequel.
