It looks like another pair of writers who worked with J.J. Abrams are being tasked with the screenplay for Mission: Impossible IV. Variety is reporting that Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec, formerly co-exec producers on Alias, are working on the next entry in the MI series which will be co-produced by Abrams and Tom Cruise (as we’ve reported earlier). They will be taking over screenwriting duties for Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who are currently busy with Fringe and the next Star Trek film. There is no confirmed director as of yet (Abrams is pretty busy these days, after all), and it seems that we’re not even sure how involved Cruise’s Ethan Hunt will be in the film.
