Cruise is starring once again in the successful Mission Impossible franchise. This fourth, and possibly final, instalment has been called Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.
Plot details of the film have been kept securely under wraps. However last week we saw Cruise filming scenes in the freezing Vitava river, Prague with co-star Jeremy Renner.
It is rumoured that Renner has a role as big as Cruise’s and is lined up to replace Cruise in any further Mission Impossible movies.
What we do know is that Brit actor Simon Pegg is in the film as is Lea Seydoux, Paula Patton, Ving Rhames and Michael Nyqvist.
Josh Holloway, who we know from Lost, also stars in the film. This is not surprising considering the Lost creator J. J. Abrams is co-producer with Cruise on the movie.
Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol will be released in America in December 2011, but there is no UK release date as of yet.
In other Tom Cruise news, it has been suggested that Tom is going to appear in an adaptation of the Broadway musical, Rock Of Ages.
Rock of Ages is the story of a small town girl who moves to LA and falls in love with a bus boy, who dreams of being a rock star. It features music from Bon Jovi, Twisted Sister and Journey.
If Cruise is to star in the film, he will have a singing part which will make quite a change from his hard man act in the Mission Impossible films. But it sounds interesting, doesn’t it?
