Talking to HitFix, Scott makes his intentions clear as to the direction he wants to take the sequel in.
“I don’t want to do a remake. I don’t want to do a reinvention. I want to do a new movie.”
He stay’s tight-lipped about Cruise’s involvement, but does reveal that this feature wouldn’t be his next project, but could possibly be the one after. I wonder if pre-production would get bumped up on this if Mission: Impossible 4 underperforms at the box office?
In the meantime, if you’re in need of a Tony Scott fix, his new film Unstoppable (with Denzel Washington and Chris Pine) is released in the UK on 24th November.
