Tom Cruise and “Mission: Impossible” crew heading to Dubai


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Fresh off the news that “Lost” star Josh Holloway would be joining the cast of Brad Bird’s “Mission: Impossible” sequel, we now know one of the many places the globetrotting adventure will be filming.

The Gulf Arab emirate’s media office (courtesy of Reuters) revealed that the Tom Cruise action thriller – the fourth in the popular franchise — will be partly filmed in Dubai.

“Preparations for filming in Dubai have been agreed with the production company, Paramount, following two months of meetings and location scouting,” the media office said in a statement. “Actual filming of the project, that will attract more than 400 industry professionals, is expected to commence within a few weeks.”

This is a major step in Dubai’s ongoing initiative to a global business and movie hub. Reuters reports that government-run Dubai Media Incorporated “will provide technical and staff support for the production of the movie,” while the local Dubai Studio City will assist with technical and logistic support.

Bird’s “Mission,” based on a story credited to “M:I 3” director J.J. Abrams, also stars Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, and Michael Nyqvist. It is eyeballing a Dec. 16, 2011 release date.
