Mission Impossible III
To kick this article off, I should point out that Mission Impossible III is my favorite of all three films. I love JJ Abrams' style, and was relieved to see Tom Cruise's hair a bit shorter. The action was also terrific, the threat felt real, and there were some thrills that didn't feel as campy as the middle installment.
I just liked it a whole lot better.
If the franchise were to continue with another installment, I could only hope that J.J. Abrams is onboard. While I would love to see him back behind the camera, J.J. has so far only agreed to produce. Eh, it's a start.
JJ Abrams Back for Another Mission Impossible
The good people at Spoiler TV scanned a small tidbit from a recent issue of TV Guide. Here's what it had to say:
The man behind Lost, Fringe and the latest Star Trek smash is reteaming with Tom Cruise to resurrect superspy Ethan Hunt for a fourth installment of the popular franchise. "I am incredibly honored that Tom has invited me back as a producer on Mission Impossible 4," says J.J. Abrams, who direct 2006's MI: 3, but hasn't yet committed to directing the fourth. "Tom and I have come up with a really cool idea we are pursuing."
Looks like the franchise is continuing to head in the right direction. Now I can only wonder if audiences are ready for a new Mission Impossible. Though I thought the third installment was WAY better than the second, the film still only did about half as well at the box office.
