Mission Impossible 4 with Tom Cruise and Jeremy Renner is a Go

Paramount Pictures has announced that Hurtlocker star Jeremy Renner will co-star with Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible 4.

Not too long after Mission Impossible 3 had been released, there had been initial reports that Cruise will not be appearing in this fourth movie but now it seems that Paramount has confirmed his presence and involvement in this new movie. Although it is yet unofficial, but it is highly likely that Ving Rhames will reprise his role as Luther Stickwell.

Mission Impossible 4 is produced by J.J. Abrams and will be directed by Brad Bird. It is scheduled for release on December 16, 2011.


Because Tom Cruise will be reprising his role, that means the movie will probably have the same format as with the rest of the other Mission Impossible movies with Cruise on it; it all focuses on one main character, Ethan Hunt. Personally, I hate these Mission Impossible movies because anybody who is familiar with the original Mission Impossible TV series knows fully well that this series is all about teamwork. How a crack team of secret agents are able to pull off incredible flawless missions just to fool their enemies in a very dangerously indiscreet, undetectable manner. Each and every mission is pulled off incredibly leaving zero traces of the team's handiwork. Cruise's version, on the other hand, is nothing but a childish James Bond rip-off, needlessly explosive, and ridiculously ballistic. As I said; childish James Bond. What was originally concieved as a spy concept that mirrors real espionage work has devolved into what looks like cartoons.
