Now Tom Cruise is really dangling from a wire.

The Hollywood Reporter brings news that Cruise is confirmed to reprise his role of Ethan Hunt in the fourth installment of the 'Mission: Impossible' franchise. However, Paramount has something of an escape clause.

The studio has taken notice of the underwhelming domestic box office performance of Cruise's latest action movie, 'Knight and Day,' and will be watching the overseas numbers of the film very closely. If 'Knight and Day' doesn't bring in at least $200 million in foreign dollars, Paramount may consider recasting the role of Ethan Hunt or rebooting the franchise completely.
