Tom Cruise confirms Brad Bird for fourth “Mission: Impossible”


Hollywoodnews.com: Tom Cruise confirmed it. Brad Bird, Oscar-winning director of the animated gems “Ratatouille,” “The Incredibles” and “The Iron Giant,” will helm the fourth “Mission: Impossible” film for Paramount Pictures.

One piece of the ever-forming “Impossible” puzzle dropped yesterday when the studio announced that the planned sequel would open from Memorial Day 2011 to Christmas. Needless to say, Cruise would return to his role of super spy Ethan Hunt. But the studio’s news did not mention who was going to direct the sequel, even though Bird had been attached to the project (via rumors) for some time now.

But the A-lister let the cat out of the bag, telling Empire, “We’re working with Brad right now. I don’t know if I’m allowed to talk about it but everything’s signed. … Brad is doing it.”

Now we’re left to wonder who else will be back doing it for a “Mission” sequel. The plot of the third film, directed by J.J. Abrams, revolved around Hunt fighting to protect girlfriend Michelle Monaghan, so it would seem silly to drop her character. Unless it’s a laser-focused mission that take Ethan and his team to a remote area, in which case we can probably count on seeing Ving Rhames again.

“Mission: Impossible IV” will be in theaters in 2011.
