Mission: Impossible IV – Brad Bird is almost on board
Posted by LiveFor on April 9, 2010
Vulture have the news that Brad Bird (Ratatouille, The Incredibles) is in final negotiations with Paramount Pictures to direct Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible IV.
It looks as if the only problem could be Bird’s asking price. Animated projects take three years of work meaning he gets paid a lot more money. Plus he’s won two Oscars and that would whack his asking price up again. Since, Mission: Impossible IV will take less time, Paramount hopes Bird will reduce his asking price.
I’m still not sure how well Bird’s skills at directing an animated movie will translate to live action. At the very least it should make interesting viewing.
Mission: Impossible IV is due out on 27th May 2011 and J J Abrams is producing.
