Tom Cruise reprises his role as IMF agent Ethan Hunt in the fourth installment of the “Mission Impossible” franchise subtitled “Ghost Protocol.”
The film, directed by Brad Bird, has been written by Christopher McQuarrie, André Nemec and Josh Appelbaum. It is produced by Abrams, Cruise and Bryan Burke, and will be released in the United States on December 16, 2011.
When a terrorist bombing destroys the Kremlin, the United States government activates “Ghost Protocol” and disavows the entire Impossible Mission Force. Ethan Hunt and his team are blamed for the attack, but are allowed to escape as part of a plan to enable them to operate outside their agency. Hunt is warned that if any member of his team is captured or compromised, they will be charged as terrorists planning a nuclear strike. He is forced to work with fellow IMF agent Brandt, who knows much more about Hunt and his past than Hunt himself.
