Not Such An Impossible Mission?

First came the news that The Hurt Locker's Jeremy Renner will join Tom Cruise in the next Mission: Impossible movie and today Variety reports that the film won't be a Mission: Impossible movie at all.

Huh? Stick with us.

There were talks early on in the development that the project would introduce a younger agent to take over from fading star Cruise when he leaves the franchise. That way the producers wouldn't need to do a traditional reboot per say, but the series could still keep going.

It looks like that time is coming sooner as opposed to later. Mission: Impossible 4 won't be called Mission: Impossible 4 at all. Variety says neither word, nor the : or 4 will appear in the title. Paramount intends to explore new titles that would relaunch the series, kinda like what Warner Bros. did with Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.

Might we in The Basement suggest The Death of Ethan Hunt?

The new-non Mission: Impossible movie is directed by Brad (The Incredible) Bird and is scheduled to open Dec. 16, 2011.
