Mission Impossible turning into a quasi reboot?

Posted on August 27, 2010 by admin | No Comments


Yesterday news hit the web suggesting that Hurt Locker star Jeremy Renner would be sharing lead billing on the 4th installment of Mission Impossible:4.

Now it looks like that might only be partially true. According to smart web writer people, Renner WILL star alongside the couch jumper in the flick BUT the film won’t be called Mission Impossible: 4. Instead, Paramount is looking to use the film as a sort of reboot for the franchise and will do what we all assumed they were doing with Shia LeBeouf in Indiana Jones and the Stupid Glass Aliens… passing the torch to the younger guy for a new set of installments.

Renner will reportedly share equal screen time in this Mission Impossible flick with Tom Cruise, but in future installments Renner would take top billing and Cruise would slip into more of a mentor capacity.

The title for the new film will likely follow the path of the Batman series and use a title completely unrelated to previous naming conventions (i.e. The Dark Knight).

I feel like this whole Renner Fever following The Hurt Locker is a little ridiculous. He wasn’t THAT great in that movie… calm the hell down Hollywood.
