by | June 21, 2005 | Comments

The Hollywood Reporter brings some nifty casting news regarding the long-gestating second sequel to "Mission: Impossible." Laurence Fishburne ("The Matrix") and Philip Seymour Hoffman ("Boogie Nights") will co-star in "Mission: Impossible 3" alongside Tom Cruise ("War of the Worlds"), Ving Rhames ("Pulp Fiction"), and Keri Russell ("We Were Soldiers").

Mr. Fishburne plays a good guy; Hoffman a baddie. Director J.J. Abrams (TV’s "Alias") plans to get the Paramount production underway next month.
