Tom Cruise Confirms M:i4 Director

Tom Cruise has revealed the director for 'Mission: Impossible IV'.

The Hollywood megastar confirmed the movie - in which Tom will reprise his role as US special agent Ethan Hunt - will be helmed by Brad Bird and scripted by British writer Edgar Wright.

He said: "I dig Edgar. Very nice guy, very smart, very talented. I'd really like to do something with him.

"I met Edgar on the set of 'Mission: Impossible III' - Simon Pegg and those guys are hilarious. I love 'Shaun of the Dead'. It's amazing. But we're working on Brad right now. I don't know if I'm allowed to talk about it but everything's signed. Brad is doing it."

The 47-year-old actor is looking forward to starting work on the project, which has a preliminary release date of May 2011.

He told website Empire Online: "We're having a lot of fun. I like working with people I just love hanging out with. You get to hang out and laugh and talk stories and movies and technology."

'Star Trek' director J.J. Abrams is also working on the film as a writer - but no storyline details have yet been confirmed."
