Is Brad's Mission to Replace Tom?

Is Brad's Mission to Replace Tom?

Rumors are flying that Paramount wants Brad to star in the next Mission Impossible movie, after they dumped Tom. If this is true, it will make Brad the highest paid actor in history. Maybe this is why Brad and Angelina were looking so happy for their date night last week. Here's more:

An insider told London Lite: "MI:IV will not include Cruise's character, agent Ethan Hunt.

They're considering a brief mention, saying Hunt retired to live a safe life with his new wife.

"They're set on Brad taking over as a gutsy new head operative who puts together his own unique team of specialists."

Sources say Paramount is prepared to do whatever it takes to get Pitt on board, and is even willing to make him the highest-paid movie star in history, with a salary topping £21 million.

They say that with Cruise now off the lot, Pitt - whose production company Plan B is based at Paramount - is clearly the biggest star with a deal at the studio.

"Everything's being kept top secret, but they're offering Brad a deal no one could possibly refuse. There's no doubt, this would make Brad Pitt the biggest and highest paid star in the world."

So it sounds like Tom might not be the only one benefiting from the Paramount breakup. I am a bit surprised they would just write off Ethan Hunt like that but I guess the delays from MI3 and the recent break up between Tom and Paramount leave the franchise in limbo. Can Brad step in and save it? Lots more pics of Brad looking hot for Esquire so

That would be sweet to have Brad in Mission. I do think they should find a Tom look a like... cast him as Ethan and Have him die in the first 10 minutes. That would be cool. Him training Brad, then a stunt gone terribly wrong. Like fallin on a fence with his eye... or up his nose.

I think he would be awesome in the Patriot game movies.. what was that guys name that Harrison Ford played? Ethan Hunt would be tainted with gay TinyTom comparisons.. BP does not need anything LEFT over.. or taken away. hahahah.. from TinyTom!!

i perfer brad to be wearing as little as possible. no sound needed, don't care what "part" he's playing. just like my brad to be "there" on the big screen.

I'd prefer Brad to be a new character than for him to be Ethan Hunt 'cause that would be too weird. And the only time I would ever compare Johnny Depp to Micheal Jackson is regarding his performance as Willy Wonka.

thanks Jen.. I have broken out into a sweat and would desperately love to go stare lovingly and longingly at his abs in my suite.. I mean.. what were we talking about.. it must not have been important since I have already forgotton the subject. Yeah!

I totally agree with you Ima. Not that we're biased.

I like how the interviewer says that most stars are not as attractive in person..that their features show up better on film..but that Brad seems even more incredibly gorgeous in person and yet down to earth like a normal joe from Shawnee OK.. he is getting better with age I think..the next Robert Redford minus the skin problem (sorry RR for that last statement).

Tom and Brad need to get lost..cant stand that psycho Tom and a leash dog Brad.
Imabeliever Imabeliever 10 years
I love it! I can see him doing it. And I would actually go see it. Dislike Tiny Tom...Love Brad.. he does have the acting chops to pull it off.. I think Babel has great nomination potentialfor him as well. And he does movies like Ocean's so that he can then focus on movies that are important to him.. like Babel and Dallas Buyers Club..ect.

Why on Earth would anyone want to have their name associated with something that Crazy Cruise has done in the past?

I think it's been reported that Johnny Depp may have used Michael Jackson as a reference for the character of Willy Wonka. I'm not sure if that's even true. That would be the only reason to use Johnny Depp and Michael Jackson in the same sentence.

Not crazy. Just my opinion radarkitty.

Daisy! How can you put Johnny Depp in the same sentence as Michael Jackson?! You are crazy. Johnny Depp is nothing like Michael. He's a great dad for one. Doesn't dangle them out a high window, give them "jesus juice" or god knows what else. That was a low blow. BOO!
