Slashfilms attended an event where JJ Abrams and composer Michael Giacchino were speaking about the new footage from Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.
The event held at the Hammer Museum. JJ Abrams had nothing but good things to say for this installment and its director, Brad Bird. This will be Brad Bird’s first live-action directorial debut, and it will be a Mission Impossible film and in IMAX.

Here is what Abrams had to say about what he’d seen:

“It’s going great. Brad Bird directed an incredibly fun movie. To watch him do his first live-action movie is kind of surreal because you see these moments that are really funny, and specific and  about character — and you think, “WOW, that’s so Brad Bird”… but then you think, “God, I’ve never seen a Brad Bird live action movie, ever.” So its a weird thing to see stuff that feels… He’s a great filmmaker who just happens to have been using the tools of animation. It’s going great. And the IMAX footage in particular is looking INSANE.”

I love the Mission Impossible franchise. I’m collecting them all. And after Brad has gotten the proverbial thumbs up from one of my favourite producers and directors this should be an awesome addition to this franchise.
