mission_impossible 4 jj abrams

Yesterday, we posted some Star Trek sequel news from director JJ Abrams, but what about his other long awaited follow up? It’s confirmed that Mission Impossible 4 has been green lit for production and will reunite Abrams with Tom Cruise for another no nonsense action fest. Over at Sci-Fi Wire, Abrams gave a little update on the status of MI:4, and spoke on whether or not he plans on directing the film.

Here’s what Abrams had to say about the progress of Mission Impossible 4.

Yeah, we have a really cool story. It’s being written right now by Andre Nemec and Josh Applebaum.  We’re hoping to get it soon, like by the end of the year.

At the moment Abrams is only on board as a producer, but when asked if would be open to direct he said, “I’m open to anything.”I’d love to see Abrams behind the camera again for another Mission Impossible. Granted MI:3 looked like a long episode of Alias, (which I loved), it worked for the movie. At the moment everything appears calm on the pre-production front of the new film. Hopefully we’ll start hearing some casting rumors sooner than later. I wonder who Ethan Hunt will be teamed up with this time?

Do you think JJ Abrams should direct MI:4?
