Simon Pegg talks Mission Impossible 4
Simon Pegg has spoken out about what we should expect from the fourth Mission: Impossible movie, revealing it’s more of a series “rebirth” than a sequel. Talking with Screen Crave, the Brit actor revealed that one of the most exciting aspects of the fourth Impossible film (subtitled Ghost Protocol) was working with first-time live-action director Brad Bird (The Incredibles).
“When a film goes into number four you’re like, ‘Isn’t this just like flogging a dead horse now?’”, Pegg admits. “But what they’ve done is they’ve brought in a director [Brad Bird] who’s never done live action before but who’s had a 100% hit rate for his previous movies. It’s a rebirth for the series. In the same way with what they’ve done with Spider-Man. I feel like it’s a reinvigoration of this particular story.”
