Tom Cruise fans, get ready to bounce on your sofas. According to B.C. production lists, Mission: Impossible IV is set to shoot in Vancouver this fall under the Blue Floor Productions label. The film is listed as Aries on production sites, with a budget vaguely described as over $20 million. A few blogs attribute the name Aries as the rumoured subtitle for the latest instalment of the Mission: Impossible franchise. IMDB reveals the movie will be directed by Brad Bird, and the 48-year-old Cruise will again star as the unstoppable Ethan Hunt. The Hurt Locker’s Jeremy Renner and Precious’s Paula Patton will also star in the film. Returning Mission: Impossible names include Maggie Q, Ving Rhames, Jonathan Rhys Meyers. A tweet from Production Weekly revealed that an office has been opened in Canada Motion Picture Park in Burnaby. The production office would not comment on the plot synopsis. According to an article in Us Weekly, Cruise’s wife Katie Holmes has admitted she’s never spent more than a week-and-a-half away from her husband. If this holds true, star spotters can also look forward to seeing Holmes and daughter Suri around town. Mission: Impossible IV is scheduled to be in production from Dec. 6 to March 7.
