This news has come out that the studio has planned to drop the name Mission Impossible from the fourth sequel. This makes no sense to me. Rumors have been they are trying to further themselves from Tom Cruise’s name recognition with the franchise. My problem is really that Cruise isn’t exactly BO poison. Knight and Day didn’t blow up the box office but it also didn’t bomb. This movie I think will fail. Mission Impossible 3 was a lot of fun and is well received but yet they want to drop MI from the new title. My question is what will you call the movie? “Spy Movie”? Or how about “Mission Sort Of Possible”? Studio’s are making some weird moves recently but this goes down as one of the worst. Just keep it Mission Impossible 4. Why don’t you worry about giving us a great action movie instead of what it’s going to be called?
Wait… Mission Impossible 4 won’t be called Mission Impossible?
