Les Grossman Won't Be a One-Joke Film
(Aug 2010) So says the movie's screenwriter, Michael Bacall.

Les Grossman Gets His Own Film

Adam Shankman ("Hairspray") is set to direct, and filming will begin this May.

New Title for "Mission Impossible 4"
(Oct 2010) "Mission Impossible 4" is no more. From now on we'll have to refer to the fourth film of the action adventure franchise as "Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol" - or maybe it's "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" - which, either way, reminds me of a "Scooby Doo" episode.

"Mission Impossible 4" is No Longer Impossible
(June 2009) Pigs are flying and hell has frozen over... Tom Cruise and Paramount Pictures parted ways back in 2006 after Viacom's Sumner Redstone put an end to Cruise's production deal with the studio, an act which didn't sit well with the Cruise camp. But it looks like all has been forgiven, or at least hurt feelings have been put aside in order to move forward on "Mission Impossible 4."
