SHOCKING? Tom Cruise To Return In MI-4

In what is the biggest news since M&M’s announced a blue colored candy coated shell, Paramount Pictures issued a press release on Tom Cruise returning for one more go as Ethan Hunt in Mission Impossible 4.

Honestly, didn’t we already know he’d be back? I mean, no one is going to see a Mission Impossible movie unless the guy was in it. I know I wouldn’t.


Here’s the press release:

HOLLYWOOD, CA (February 9, 2010) – Paramount Pictures announced today that it is making “Mission Impossible IV.” The film, which will be produced by Tom Cruise, J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot Productions and will star Cruise, will be released Memorial Day weekend 2011.

“Tom and J.J. are great talents and we are excited to be working with them to re-launch this legendary franchise,” said Paramount Pictures Chairman & CEO Brad Grey.

Screenwriters Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec are attached to write the script, from an original idea by Cruise and Abrams.
The studio, Cruise and Abrams are in now the process of identifying a director for the film.

Abrams’s last project with Paramount was “Star Trek,” which he produced and directed. The film grossed $385 million globally.  Cruise’s “Mission Impossible” franchise has grossed over 1.4 billion globally.

“Mission Impossible IV” will be co-financed by David Ellison’s Skydance Productions.

Cruise is represented by CAA. Abrams, Applebaum and Nemec are represented by WME.

Not exactly shocking. Without Tom Cruise as the star, Mission Impossible 4 turns into Agent Cody Banks 3.
