Paramount taketh away, and it givith...

Paramount, having wisely cancelled it's proposed film version of The Watchmen (see below), has given the green light to Mission: Impossible 3. I have a lot more belief that they can pull off the latter than the former. Say what you will about Tom Cruise, but he's insanely focused on producing polished, well-made films, and has a better track record over the last ten years than about anyone else in Hollywood. According to what I've heard before--barring changes--J.J. Abrams, the guy behind TV's Alias, will write and direct this one.
