Aug 7 (IBNS) The stage is all set for the production of Mission Impossible IV. Paramount Pictures and producers Tom Cruise and J.J. Abrams have officially started the groundwork of the production of the “Mission: Impossible IV,” and they have appointed Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec to write the screenplay.

Variety.com reported that the duo aren’t big feature names yet, but they join a list of writers who transitioned from Abrams TV series creations to pen the features he directs and produces through his Bad Robot banner.

Applebaum and Nemec had pent four seasons with Abrams as co-exec producers of “Alias,” and they will script “MI 4″ based on a story Abrams wrote with them.

Besides hiring script writers the only other commitments so far are for Cruise and Abrams to produce the film together. Sources revealed that Cruise’s character, Ethan Hunt, will certainly be involved in an onscreen capacity and the movie is set for a 2011 release.

Applebaum and Nemec are the creators of the new ABC series “Happy Town” and previously created “October Road” and the U.S. version of “Life on Mars” for ABC.

“I’ve been looking forward to working with Josh and Andre again for years. Their sense of balance between character and action is wonderful, which I know is hugely important to Tom as well. We’re off to an exciting start, so, as usual, fingers crossed,” Abrams was quoted as saying.
