Mission: Impossile 3: According to The Hollywood Reporter, J.J. Abrams is reteaming with "Alias" writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who are coming on board to work on the script of Mission: Impossible 3.

The move comes in the wake of the announcement last month that "Alias" creator Abrams will helm the second sequel in the successful franchise after Joe Carnahan dropped out. Several writers have been involved with the project, including Dean Georgaris, Dan Gilroy, Robert Towne and Frank Darabont.
