Brad Bird Is Top Choice to Direct 'Mission: Impossible 4'
Though he's never directed a live-action film, Brad Bird is the top choice to direct Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible 4. That's an inspired choice. Bird's animated works have shown off his flair for combining crazy action with touching characters. The Iron Giant and The Incredibles are instant classics and Ratatouille made me so afraid of germs on my food that I've lived a Howard Hughes existence ever since seeing it. Ever since seeing it. Ever since seeing it. *pees into milk bottle*
Bird has been trying for quite some time to get disaster drama 1906 in front of cameras, but that has been bogged down with budgetary issues. Hopefully, he'll get M:I 4 and that will lead to bigger and better projects. I say give this guy the gig. There have been so many subpar action thrillers released in the last decade, it's time for a few more great ones. Our eyeballs deserve at least that much. (Heat Vision)
