‘Mission: Impossible 4′ Gets A New Title (Again)

When Tom Cruise proclaimed that The Mission is the title of  Mission: Impossible 4, word quickly got out that the globe-trotting spy-thriller would likely have an entirely different name at the end of the day.

Now the Mission: Impossible 4 production has moved to Dubai and Cruise has announced that the project will actually be called Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, not The Mission – so no one should mistake it for a film that chronicles the experiences of young people on a quest to convert others to their religion. icon wink Mission: Impossible 4 Gets A New Title (Again)

Cruise and his Mission: Impossible 3 director, J.J. Abrams – who will produce the fourth movie – visited the city of Dubai last year and eventually decided to use the scenic location as “the centerpiece of ['Mission: Impossible 4']“. The latest chapter in the successful TV show-turned-blockbuster franchise will be the first major Hollywood production set in Dubai, which is located just south of the Persian Gulf on the Arabian Peninsula in the Middle East.

Plot details on Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol are being kept under wraps for now, though we know that Ethan Hunt (Cruise) will work in collaboration with another agent (Jeremy Renner), who may become a prominent player in future installments of the series. The fourth Mission: Impossible flick will feature several newcomers to the franchise, including Russian actor Vladimir Mashkov, Girl With the Dragon Tattoo star Michael Nyqvist, as well as American thespians Paula Patton and Josh Holloway.

Ving Rhames, center, and Simon Pegg, right, will join Cruise in 'M:I 4" as well.

A different director has been onboard for every entry in this franchise, so the tone and design has varied significantly from film to film. Brian De Palma’s Mission: Impossible was more atmospheric and featured bursts of thrilling action; John Woo’s Mission: Impossible 2 went with slo-mo fight sequences and over-the-top stunts; and J.J. Abrams mixed domestic scenes of Ethan Hunt’s personal life with fast-paced action and set pieces in Mission: Impossible 3.

Pixar’s Brad Bird will try his hand at helming a live-action film with the fourth Mission: Impossible, so we’ll have to see how his approach differs or resembles that of his predecessors – with a solid cast at his side, the results should be pretty good.

Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol will arrive in theaters in the U.S. by December 2011.

  1. Is the Ghost Tom Cruises career?

    But seriously, it’s an awful title.

  2. Better than the mission, let’s see where they go with this. I like the mission impossible series just hope this isn’t a trainwreck.

  3. I think this one will be closer in tone to MI3.

  4. I hope they change the batman title too

  5. The only movie in this series that was any good was the first one. The rest were pure junk. Might as well name this Mission: Impossible-Charlie’s Angels because that is how bad it’s going to be.

  6. LET’S NOT GET CRAZY ANDY S, TO PUT THIS SERIES IN THE SAME BOAT AS CHARLIES ANGELS IS A COMPLETELY STUPID STATEMENT. ON THE CONTRARY, I THINK MI4 IS GOING TO BE THE BEST OF THE SERIES, WITH THIS CAST AND BRAD BIRD HELMING, IT WILL BE A HIT

    • LOL….

  7. Why call just call this movie Alpha Protocol, lol. I mean seriously Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol? Here’s an Idea, Just call the movie Mission:Impossible 4.

  8. they just might as well call it misson:blow it out your ass

    • Omg that made me crack up!

  9. Better than ” The Mission “. I think they’ll come around to change the Batman title too, it’s not the first time they release working titles that sound awful and rename them later on.
