Tom Cruise has recruited ALIAS creator Jj Abrams to take charge of his third MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE movie.

Abrams admits he was both thrilled and shocked when the movie superstar asked him to direct MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 3 after the pair became friends.

The thrilled director, who will make his big screen debut with the movie, says, "I keep thinking I'm going to wake up and be really embarrassed that I had this dream."

Cruise is convinced he's made a good choice: "I'm a big fan of his... It's going to be very cool."
