Remember how great J.J. Abrams’ Mission: Impossible 3 was? Well so does Tom Cruise, which is why the smily Scientologist is working with the Star Trek director to produce a new Mission: Impossible film.
I really kind of like the idea behind the MI film series–allowing a new director to helm each installment and bring his own flavor to the table. This move, though, implies that Cruise is hoping to keep the franchise more in line with the previous movie. Check out the rest of the story at Spoiler TV.
You should have grabbed J.J. a few months earlier, Tom. I’m guessing his rate’s gone up considerably now that he has a successful space opera under his belt.
So now we can start speculating about directors. Who would you guys want? Personally I’d like to see Zack Snyder or Michael “Shoot ‘em Up” Davis.
Or Darron Aronofsky. But I’d like to see him direct just about anything.
