Paula Patton Cast In “Mission: Impossible 4″ As Female Lead

paula_patton_unleashed_4On Sunday, we alerted you to Paula Patton’s potential involvement in Mission: Impossible 4. At the time, she was 1 of 3 actresses being considered for the female lead role, described as “a young operative” playing alongside (and likely under, and/or on-top of ;)) Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt.

I’ve just learned that Patton has officially been cast! She’s in like Flynn!

Deadline also says that the film actually will not be a sequel, and won’t be called Mission: Impossible 4. Tom Cruise and wunderkind producer/director J.J. Abrams have reportedly long-envisioned the project as a “franchise reboot;” essentially, it’s like they’re starting from scratch.

Production is scheduled to begin on the $140 million film this fall with Brad Bird directing. The Hurt Locker’s Jeremy Renner also stars.

Recall Tom Cruise danced with a Thandie Newton in Mission: Impossible 2.
