Joe Carnahan Drops Out On 'Mission: Impossible 3'[Monday, July 19th, 2004]
Joe Carnahan (Narc) has dropped out of directing Mission: Impossible 3, due to creative differences, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
According to Rob Friedman, vice chairman of the Paramount Pictures Motion Picture Group, the film remains scheduled to begin shooting as planned next month at Berlin's Babelsberg Studios.
Babelsberg has had its own share of problems, with a recent takeover prompting a letter of protest sent to German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder from a committee representing the studios' 220 full-time employees.
Committee chairman Jan-Peter Schmarje said that big-budget productions planned for the studio, including Aeon Flux and Mission: Impossible 3, will go ahead as planned.
