May 2005 Release Expected For 'Mission Impossible 3'

Paramount Pictures are stepping away from a May 2004 opening date for Mission: Impossible 3, according to Variety.

The studio are said to have moved off the date recently after Michael Mann announced plans to direct Collateral for DreamWorks, with Tom Cruise expected to topline and shooting expected to start in the fall.

As a result, 'M:I 3' is now expected to begin shooting in January, which makes the previously planned May 21 release unlikely.

According to the trade, the studio has not set a new release date, but the most likely scenario would be for 'M:I 3' to open during the 2004 holiday season or in May 2005.
