Scarlett Johansson and Carrie-Anne Moss have quit to star in the 2nd "Mission: Impossible" sequel because of ongoing delays
Scarlett Johansson and Carrie-Anne Moss have both decided to quit the second "Mission: Impossible" sequel because of ongoing delays. The two actresses are actually slated to team up with Tom Cruise in "M:I 3." Unfortunately, the movie director JJ Abrams has a scheduling problems around the film's script.
Because of that Abrams has to reluctantly let them go. He tells website About.com, "The script was rewritten. I'm a huge fan of each actor that they cast originally, but to have kept the actors when we are reinventing the story would have been an odd process. To say, write a script with these people in mind for characters that haven't been written,' just felt like we had to start over with a clean slate."
However, Abrams, who not yet announce his replacements for the project, is planned to starting the shoot in July.
