As Mission Impossible 4 starring Tom Cruise continues through pre-production in preparation to start filming, some news has come out from Paramount Pictures regarding the film. Skydance Productions founded and headed by producer/actor David Ellison, has joined forces with the vaunted studio to finance the latest installment in the legendary action series!
Ellison previously produced and acted in the WWI action flick Flyboys starring James Franco. Now turning to the business end of show business, the young Hollywood player has partnered with Paramount not only on the next Mission Impossible, but in producing the next Coen Brother’s film, True Grit. Talk about youth being served! Getting to work with Tom Cruise and a pair of Oscar winning brothers marks a great start to a career.
The Mission Impossible action series enters its fourth episode with Tom reprising his role as Ethan Hunt – CIA super spy, master of disguise and all-out hero. The first three films in the series are worldwide hits, combining for over $1.4 billion in total box office revenue!
Tom is looking forward to ramping up the action again – returning to collaborate as on the story with J.J. Abrams. The Bad Robot chief also returns to team with Tom as a producer.
