“Mission: Impossible 4” has official start date, new subtitle
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Brad Bird’s “Mission: Impossible 4” has an official start date. Does it have a subtitle, as well?
We have been learning bits and pieces about this sequel. We learned that Tom Cruise, indeed, will return as special agent Ethan Hunt, and that he’ll be joined by regular “Impossible” contributor Ving Rhames. This morning, Production Weekly revealed that “M:I 4” will begin shooting on Dec. 1, near a newly-opened production office at the Canadian Motion Picture Park in British Columbia.
But the PW tweet also referred to “M:I 4” as “Aries,” and that’s something we haven’t heard before. I wonder what that refers to? A villain? A secret weapon? A new identity for Cruise, or a younger agent ready to take his place?
IMDB says Bird will work from a script by Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec, based on an idea credited to Cruise and J.J. Abrams.
Right now, “M:I 4” will be in theaters on Dec. 16, 2011.
