Actor Tom Cruise is set to reprise his role as Ethan Hunt in the action packed Mission: Impossible movie franchise. Cruise, 47, last appeared in Mission: Impossible III, after which he was fired by Paramount studio head Sumner Redstone, reports Radar Online.
Redstone had publicly blasted Cruise for his actions — his highly publicised jumping on the couch on Oprah Winfrey’s Show as he declared his love for Katie Holmes and his rants about Scientology.
The Mission: Impossible franchise has grossed $1.4 billion world wide. Mission Impossible IV is slated to be shot this summer and will release in 2011.
