J.J. Abrams Update – Mission: Impossible IV

« 1 2»


In a decisively smaller update than the one above, Abrams gave an update on the status of M:I IV. With regards to a fourth in the franchise that he says he’s, “Open to anything,” when he was asked whether or not he’d direct another, Abrams gave the following little status report:

“Yeah, we have a really cool story. It’s being written right now by Andre Nemec and Josh Applebaum… We’re hoping to get it soon, like by the end of the year.”

The writers Abrams mentions, Nemec and Applebaum, we first heard about writing M:I IV at the beginning of last month. Although no plot was given at the time, it was revealed that the script was being written working from a story treatment by the two writers along with Abrams himself.

Even though Abrams is not yet confirmed for directorial duties on Mission Impossible 4 (due out in a couple of years), I’m very glad to hear he’s open to directing it. Even if the third film in the franchise (which Abrams directed) wasn’t a perfect action movie, I still found it to be hugely entertaining and would openly welcome Abrams back to direct another.

All of the three M:I films so far have had different directors (Brian De Palma did the first, John Woo did the second, and Abrams did the third), so I wonder if that’s any sort of indication that there will be yet another different director brought on-board for the fourth. Or were those three previous change-ups meaningless?

What do you think of these two Abrams updates: Do you think the next Star Trek should deal with modern day issues (such as war and terrorism)? Or should it just stick to good sci-fi adventure, without bothering with any of that stuff? And do you think Abrams should direct another Mission Impossible?

The next Star Trek currently is in the early stages of development and doesn’t have a set release date yet. Mission: Impossible IV is scheduled for a release sometime in 2011.
