Paula Patton is the latest cast addition to Paramount Pictures upcoming franchise reboot Mission: Impossible. Deadline is reporting that she will play a young operative who teams up with Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt.

In the same story, Deadline claims that Tom Cruise and producer J.J. Abrams, who came up with the story together, have decided to remove the IV from the title. This is to ensure that audiences clearly recognize that the film is a reboot, which both parties intended when they first sat down to collaborated on the script.

The movie begins shooting this fall with director Brad Bird at the helm. It will be Tom Cruise's first film with Paramount since he left the studio in 2007.

Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol was released December 21st, 2011 and stars Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton, Michael Nyqvist, Vladimir Mashkov, Samuli Edelmann, Ivan Shvedoff. The film is directed by Brad Bird.

    Agreed with @Insert, and how is it a reboot anyway when it still has Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, and Simon Pegg from the last movie starring? That doesn't make any sense.

    Dropping the number from the title doesn't make it a reboot.

    Its a reboot with the same lead actor (tom cruise) and supporting actor (ving rhames). That makes a lot of sense. Its a sequel......same characters...different setting....all they need to say.

    If its a reboot, then it shouldnt have tom cruise in it. Jeremy Renner should take his place.
