Tom Cruise, J.J. Abrams to Again Make Film Based on Classic TV Show Variety
Tom Cruise has been signed to co-produce the third sequel of the motion picture version of “Mission Impossibe.”
He will re-team with J.J. Abrams—creator of “Fringe” on TV and the blockbuster “Star Trek” movie this summer—to make “Mission Impossible IV” in 2011, Variety reports. Cruise and Abrams made “Mission Impossible III” together.
The deal is somewhat surprising because “Mission Impossible” is a Paramount property, and Cruise had a very public falling out with the studio a few years ago.
But in Hollywood, the only events more popular than break-ups are the getting’s back together.
