Just a tidbit regarding everyone's favourite operating thetan... Tom Cruise was on the popular SMAP SMAP program here in Japan (HERE), and when asked about the Mission Impossible franchise he revealed that he has started work on the fourth installment...he's working on the story right now. He also commented that during his visit here he'd been thinking about how to stage a big action sequence in downtown Tokyo..dunno if he was just being polite, but sounds like a cool setting for the series, what? Tom seemed like an all-round nice guy, by the by. If you use this call me supastringNot sure how I feel about this. The first M:I film was boring...the second one was aloof and OTT...I rather liked the third one even though no one else seemed to...so I don't know how to relate the the concept of a fourth movie. Always kinda wondered how Oliver Stone's MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE II would've shaken out if he'd remained attached to the project. If memory serves, it was about a sentient supercomputer which convinces the world that all IMF are bad guys. Or, something like that.
