“Mission: Impossible 3” and “Star Trek” director J.J. Abrams tells TV Guide via Spoiler TV that he’s set to produce “Mission: Impossible 4”
“I am incredibly honored that Tom [Cruise] has invited me back as a producer on ‘Mission: Impossible 4′. Tom and I have come up with a really cool idea we are pursuing” said Abrams who directed 2006′s “Mission: Impossible 3″.
Earlier this year, Cruise revealed that he would reprise his role of Ethan Hunt in the film.
Yet with a $134 million from the domestic market and $397.9 million worldwide, almost triple its $150M budget, the franchise has been highly profitable for the studio so interest in a fourth outing comes as no surprise.
