Brad Pitt as Ethan Hunt?

by | September 19, 2006 | Comments

Well, we all know that Paramount’s not really interested in the Tom Cruise business anymore, but JoBlo’s sharing a piece of gossip from across the pond that might not be true — but it is kinda fun. Unsubstantiated buzz indicates that Paramount wants none other than Brad Pitt to step into the lead for "Mission: Impossible 4."

From JoBlo’s: "According to a report on, Paramount is so desperate to land Pitt, they’re willing to shell out more money than any studio’s ever given any actor ever (close to 40 million duckets)…"

Maybe I’m confused but … isn’t it that kind of star-lust and money-flinging what soured the Cruise/Paramount relationship in the first place?
