New Set Photos from Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol
12.15.10 by Ryan
The last "spy" footage from the production of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, the fourth Mission: Impossible movie, showed franchise star Tom Cruise performing a stunt from the Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai (prior to that Cruise was ziplining in Prague). With the production shifting to Vancouver, the latest set photos show the arrival of Simon Pegg and Paula Patton, as Pegg drives Cruise and Patton in a van with Russian characters written on the side.
The sequel marks the return of Pegg as computer geek Benji Dunn, though it appears that Pegg will be seeing more action in than he did in Mission: Impossible III. Pegg commemorated his return to the Mission: Impossible franchise on his Twitter page.
I have now filled out into Benji Dunne 2.0. Mission 4 is endless fun. Les Grossman as Ethan Hunt has to be seen to be believed. I.M.F.M.Fs!!
Two days later, Pegg was tweeting about the time he's having in Vancouver.
Another epic day on Grouse, carving up the powder and s**t with M:I and Trek stunt co-ordinator and fight choreographer, Rob Alonzo. Sick!!!
Pegg has continued to tweet about skiing on Vancouver's Grouse mountain, so expect to see Pegg ski in the movie — or to appear in only few scenes, providing him with plenty of downtime.
Ghost Protocol opens December 16, 2011. Brad Bird (The Incredibles) makes his live-action directorial debut with J.J. Abrams producing. Ving Rhames, Josh Holloway, Jeremy Renner, Vladimir Mashkov, Michael Nyqvist, and Anil Kapoor co-star.
