Next "Mission" still to be confirmed

Seems thing’s aren’t as full speed ahead on a “Mission: Impossible 3” as rumoured. Talking with Sci Fi Wire, Tom Cruise said he hasn’t yet committed to it. "Mission is always tough to do," Cruise said in an interview. "If I don’t feel that I can do it, [then I won't]." Cruise added, "I hope I can, because I like producing those movies. They’re just fun to produce." In the previous two Mission: Impossible movies, Cruise has headlined as superspy Ethan Hunt and has also worked behind the scenes with producing partner Paula Wagner. Cruise said that he and Wagner are working with writers on the script for a third film now, but declined to name them. A spring production start is eyed. Is it possible that Cruise might let an MI:3 happen without Ethan Hunt? Sounds possible doesn’t it? In our interview with Cruise today, writer Paul Fischer actually says he got the impression that Cruise isn’t likely to be doing it anytime soon.
