Mission: Impossible 3: In a recent interview with Empire Online, screenwriter Frank Darabont talked about the next Mission: Impossible film, which currently has no director attached, and which is also scheduled to begin shooting next month...
"This is going into a very character-driven and gritty — much grittier than the first two — kind of place. Dealing in a more immediately graspable and relevant reality, globally speaking. It's much more in line with certain things that are going on in the headlines and if I said any more than that I think Tom might have me killed."
"I think it's going to be really terrific whoever directs it," insists Darabont. "The choices so far for director have been very interesting, which just shows where Tom's head is. He wants all of these to be very different, and indeed the first two were, but I think the third is going to just kick the ass of the first two."
Mission: Impossible III was released May 5th, 2006 and stars Tom Cruise, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Ving Rhames, Billy Crudup, Michelle Monaghan, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Keri Russell, Maggie Q. The film is directed by J.J. Abrams.
