'Hot Fuzz' lead to reprise lab role
Simon Pegg is in talks to reprise his role as lab technician Benji Dunn for Mission: Impossible IIII.
The film, helmed by The Incredibles and Ratatouille director Brad Bird in his first live action project, once again sees Tom Cruise leading the way as secret agent Ethan Hunt, reports Empire.
The plot is currently under wraps, but the film is being produced by Lost creator JJ Abrams, who produced Mission: Impossible III and also worked with Pegg on the 2009 remake of Star Trek.
Pegg will attend this year’s comic convention, Comic-Con, (July 22-25) in San Diego to showcase his new film Paul, a comedy about two geeks who encounter an alien while travelling across the US to a comic convention.
