Variety reported that megastar Tom Cruise has his eye on the next director in the "Mission: Impossible" franchise and it's none other than "Se7en" director David Fincher. Cruise, who has acting projects like "The Last Samurai" and "Ghost Soldiers" currently on his plate, said that he always intended to continue the M:I franchise with a different director in each outting. Brian De Palma helmed the first film in 1996, while John Woo directed the even more successful follow-up in 2000. Cruise has apparently had his eye on working with Fincher for some time due to the director's unique style. Personally, I would love to see Fincher do M:I-3. I can only imagine how distintive a look the movie would have. Apparently, Fincher is at the top of Cruise's wish list. Rumor has it that Oliver Stone was also being "considered". Cruise's next film is expected to be "The Last Samurai" for director Edward Zwick. After that he may reuinite with "Minoirty Report" director Steven Spielberg on the WWII film "Ghost Soldiers". Depending on Cruise's schedule, M:I-3 probably won't go before cameras until early 2003.
