'Mission: Impossible 4' Recruits Two Writers


'Alias' co-executive producers, Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec, have been tapped to write the screenplay for the fourth installment of the action series about IMF agent Ethan Hunt.

"Mission: Impossible 4" is definitely moving forward into materialization with the picking up of its writers. Coming up with the scribes' recruitment news was Variety, which reported that Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec have both been set to pen the screenplay based on a story producer J.J. Abrams wrote with them.

Josh and Andre have previously worked with Abrams as the executive producers of season four of ABC's series "Alias". On the chance to team up once again with the two, Abrams said, "I've been looking forward to working with Josh and Andre again for years. Their sense of balance between character and action is wonderful, which I know is hugely important to Tom as well. We're off to an exciting start, so, as usual, fingers crossed."

For this "Mission: Impossible 4", "Star Trek" director J.J. Abrams is set to produce with the star of the "Mission: Impossible" series, Tom Cruise. While no other detail has been confirmed just yet, Variety reported that "Cruise's character, Ethan Hunt, will certainly be involved in an on-screen capacity." The movie is targeting a 2011 U.S. release.

The last "Mission: Impossible" movie hitting the big screen was "Mission: Impossible 3". Widely released in the United States on May 5, 2006, the spy-themed action film that follows IMF agent Ethan Hunt collected $134 million from the domestic market and $397.9 million worldwide. Aside from Tom Cruise, the film was supported by Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Ving Rhames and Michelle Monaghan among others.
