"The Incredibles" Director to Helm "Mission: Impossible 4"?

"The Incredibles" Director to Helm "Mission: Impossible 4"?Submit Comment
It was recently reported that Tom Cruise and producer JJ Abrams have met with "Zombieland" helmer Ruben Fleischer to direct the fourth "Mission: Impossible" movie.

Other people who have been considered are Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) and Pixar's Brad Bird (Ratatouille, The Incredibles). And according to THR, Bird has become the leading contender.

Bird has never directed a live-action film, but he has been praised for his storytelling skills and is known for his ability to stage thrilling and intricate action set-pieces, as well as mixing action with heart and emotion.

The helmer has been trying to make his live-action debut for a while and has long been developing "1906," set around the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. That project is set up at Warners and is rumored to be stalled because of budgetary reasons.

Great news!!! Hoped they followed this line of quality helmers with their own style and I think this is a very very good choice

It's a very interesting choice. But I would rather see the "1906"-movie instead.

I actually really liked Mission 3. I hope this one is just as good.

If he's gonna try and direct avengers, he better keep himself free and open. This may get in the way

I like Brad Bird The Incredibles is the best pixar film they have made and the The Simpsons hasn't been the same since he left back '97. I think he would do a good job what ever he did be it MI4 , 1906 (sounds good)or even The Avengers ....

Yes! Outstanding! Now finish the damn deal, cause if this man is onboard, the movie will succeed. I've been waiting for 1906 since 2005, but that's good enough too.
