Cruise Set for Fourth ‘Mission: Impossible’

Tom Cruise has signed up to reprise his producing role for the fourth Mission: Impossible movie.

The actor has starred as secret agent Ethan Hunt in all three movies of the action franchise, and has co-produced the trilogy, which has grossed $1.4 billion worldwide.

And while Cruise has not yet confirmed that he will take on the tough-guy role again, he is re-teaming with director J.J. Abrams to co-produce the fourth installment, which is slated for a 2011 release.
