Paula Patton Lands Mission: Impossible

Paula Patton will play the female lead in the fourth 'Mission: Impossible' movie

The 'Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire' actress will play a young operative who works with Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) on his fourth tough assignment, Deadline.com reports.

According to the website, the movie will also not be called 'Mission: Impossible 4', with producer J. J. Abrams and Cruise thinking of it as a reboot of the franchise rather than a continuation.

Director Brad Bird is to begin shooting the $140 million project in the autumn, with Jeremy Renner also lined-up to star in the project.

Paula, 34, only began her acting career in 2005, and has since starred in a number of movies including 'Hitch' and 'London' and was most recently seen alongside Queen Latifah and Common in romantic comedy 'Just Wright'.

She is currently filming comedy movie 'Jump the Broom' ahead of her work on the fourth 'Mission: Impossible' movie, which is due for release in December 2011.
