Thereâ€™s been umpteen rumours regarding a fourth â€˜â€™Mission : Impossibleâ€™â€™ since, well… the moment they announced production on â€˜â€™Mission : Impossible IIIâ€™â€™ in 2006 .
At one stage (granted this was the British Press) Brad Pitt was rumoured to be taking over from Tom Cruise as the seriesâ€™ star, and later, word (not sure how reliable that word was, but it was word none-the-less) was Paramount were considering rebooting the series â€“ which probably shouldnâ€™t surprise us, considering the success theyâ€™ve had with the â€œStar Trekâ€ prequel.
Now, according to TV Guide magazine, â€œMI:3â€ director J.J Abrams (ironically the director of Paramountâ€™s successful â€œTrekâ€ relaunch) is back onboard the franchise for the fourth installment.
â€œI am incredibly honoured that Tom has invited me back as a producer on MI 4â€, Abrams told the mag. â€œTom and I have a really cool idea that we are pursuingâ€.
Now that doesnâ€™t mean Cruise is returning as Ethan Hunt, it could simply mean Cruise will be producing alongside Abrams. For all we know, this â€œcool ideaâ€ could indeed be the oft-rumoured â€˜prequelâ€™ idea. We shall see.
