Brad Bird has dampened expectations of another new 'Mission Impossible,' for a very short while at least, by confirming that he will not be coming back to be involved in the hugely successful Hollywood franchise. It was Bird at the helm for the hugely successful reboot of the series that was released last year, 'Ghost Protocol' proving a commercial and critical smash with Bird making a successful leap from animated films like 'The Incredibles' to live-action.
It would appear though that he's less enthused about continuing in the role; he told Crave "I think that one of the things that's fun about the series is that they always pull in a different director and try to get a different kind of take on the premise."
