The buzz surrounding the fourth installment of the franchise is actually pretty good, which would be a blessing for both Tom Cruise and director Brad Bird (making the leap to non-animated movies).
Scheduled for release December 16, the film stars Tom Cruise and Jeremy Renner, with Paula Patton, Josh Holloway, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Michael Nyqvist, Anil Kapoor, Lea Seydoux and Vladimir Mashkov.
Looks decent, enough. Obviously, the franchise is positioning Jeremy Renner to take over for Tom Cruise after this one, which if this movie is a success that plan really only works if they kill off Ethan Hunt. [via slashfilm]
