Simon Pegg in Talks to Return to Mission Impossible 4

I guess the rumors were true: “Mission Impossible 4″ really is chugging towards a greenlight at Paramount, despite Tom Cruise’s recent box office difficulties (ala “Knight and Day’s” failure to get notice). News has it that Simon Pegg, who co-starred with Cruise in “Mission Impossible 3″, is in talks with the studio to reprise his role of IMF tech geek Benji Dunn.

“Mission Impossible 4″ will of course return Tom Cruise as IMF superspy Ethan Hunt, with part three’s writer/director J.J. Abrams producing. Directing duty on part four will be by Brad Bird (“The Incredibles”), who has been attached to the sequel for seemingly forever.

If all goes well, “Mission Impossible 4″ will be accepting a brand new mission sometime in September of this year.

    Honestly,it's not about the star that make the box office failure, it's about the director that don't have enough vision to direct that story. The star can only help so much. The biggest star like Tom and Cameron might only help 70 or 80% at the box office,but director must bright his talented 110% to bring the story alive. Another word,if the story is suck it will fails at the box office,it's doesn't matter this star is top of all stars. Agreeable with me or not,but that how I see.
