New Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol Featurette All About Simon Pegg
"I have arrived at the party," says Simon Pegg in the latest featurette for Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, and while Pegg is talking in character, in a way, the Shaun of the Dead actor is talking about himself. The movie's advertising has basically ignored Pegg so far, and has instead focused on Tom Cruise's stunt work outside the Burj Khalifa building in Dubai (featured in the first featurette and the sequel's trailers), and Jeremy Renner's leap into an air shaft (shown in two preview clips).
The latest featurette concentrates solely on Pegg's character of Impossible Mission Force (IMF) computer expert Benji Dunn, who originally appeared in Mission: Impossible III, and offers new footage from the movie as well. Up next has to be something for Paula Patton, the fourth member of the IMF team.
Brad Bird (The Incredibles) makes his live-action directorial debut in Ghost Protocol which was produced by Mission: Impossible III director J.J. Abrams, and written by screenwriters Josh Appelbaum, Andre Nemec and Christopher McQuarrie . Josh Holloway (Lost), Vladimir Mashkov (Behind Enemy Lines), Michael Nyqvist (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), and Anil Kapoor (Slumdog Millionaire) co-star.
