It's Mission Impossible once again for Tom Cruise

by Matt Z

In a move that makes complete sense, Tom Cruise has signed on for Mission: Impossible 5.  Those are the only details we really know at this point with the exception of what studios are involved.

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol made over $700 million worldwide and was received very favorably by critics and audiences.  I'm not a huge follower of the franchise but saw M:I-GP on the big screen and really enjoyed it.  It was a lot of fun, just like an action movie is supposed to be.  It's plot was ridiculous and at times made absolutely no sense, but that wasn't the point.  It was meant to be over the top and silly at times.  The recipe for success was have great gadgets and a plot that wouldn't confuse my 5 month old niece.  It worked.
