While out doing the press rounds for his upcoming sci-fi road trip comedy Paul, popular British comedian and actor Simon Pegg offered his thoughts on the upcoming reboot Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol.
He wants to make it very clear that this is not a sequel, and he then compared it to what Sony is currently doing with The Amazing Spider-Man. Here are his thoughts.
"It's a rebirth for the series. In the same way with what they've done with The Amazing Spider-Man. I feel like it's a reinvigoration of this particular story. It was a series when it was on TV, so it's a story that can have so many iterations. There are so many adventures to get into with this team of impossible mission fighters. When a film goes into number four you're like, 'Isn't this just like flogging a dead horse now?' But what they've done is they've brought in a director who's never done live action before but who's had a 100 percent hit rate for his previous movies: Ratatouille, The Incredibles, and The Iron Giant are all just five star films. Brad Bird has just brought that sensibility to this film. And the fact that's it's Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, it's not Mission: Impossible 4."
