Seriously? What on EARTH are they thinking?
Tom Cruise revealed today that instead of keeping the title for his latest flick Mission: Impossible IV, which we think works just fine, the new installment in the spy franchise has been re-coined Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol!
Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol?!
What is this, a reality show on TLC?!
Sounds to us like they've just given up completely on trying to take this one remotely seriously!
Which is fine by us, because let's be real - nobody else is!

A salary cut!
Paramount has supposedly lost so much faith in Tom Cruise that they cut half of Mission: Impossible 4's expected $135 million production budget!
Cruise is also rumored to have agreed to be paid "scale", taking nearly no salary up front and paid only after the studio makes money on the movie!
Not good, Tommy boy! We think it has to do with Knight and Day's abysmal showing at the box office.
Is Hollywood finished with Tom Cruise?
