Star Trek director J.J. Abrams tells TV Guide that he will be producing the fourth “Mission: Impossible” film.
“I am incredibly honored that Tom has invited me back as a producer on ‘Mission: Impossible 4,'” said Abrams, who directed 2006’s Mission: Impossible III, but hasn’t yet committed to directing the fourth.
“Tom and I have come up with a really cool idea we are pursuing,” he added.
The third film cost about $150 million to make and earned $397.8 million worldwide. The first pic pulled in $457.7 million worldwide on a $80 million budget and the second took in $546.3 million on a $125 million budget.
Abrams’ credits include TV shows “Fringe,” “Lost,” “Alias” and “Felicity.”
