Mission Impossible IV Announced

Mission Impossible IV

Well, this is interesting. Paramount dropped the official dime today that Tom Cruise will be returning as Ethan Hunt in a fourth Mission Impossible outing. But what’s really interesting is the producer at the helm: Lost‘s J.J. Abrams. Abrams took a moribund franchise and elevated it with last year’s Star Trek, so hopes are high that he can inject some new blood into the Impossible series, which was cutting-edge in 1996 but hasn’t aged particularly well. No director is attached yet, but we do know the writing team: Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec, who worked with Abrams on Alias. More news as it develops.
