Kanye Does “Mission Impossible III” Theme

Grammy Award-winner Kanye West will interpret the theme to “Mission: Impossible III,” bringing his inventive, masterful, and dynamic style to the iconic song.  Dubbed “the smartest man in pop music” in an October ‘05 TIME Magazine cover story, West, who is also nominated for an additional eight GRAMMYs at the upcoming 48th annual ceremony, continues the tradition of groundbreaking and innovative artists performing the classic theme, as members of U2 did in 1996 for “Mission: Impossible,” followed by Limp Bizkit in 2000 for “M:I-2.”

Tom Cruise said, “As a fan of Kanye’s work, I was thrilled at the prospect
of him contributing his talents to ‘M:i:III.’ We wanted to take this
installment of ‘Mission’ to the next level and Kanye’s music definitely added to accomplishing that goal.  As we’ve done with the film, what he’s done with the ‘Mission’ theme is going to blow people away.”

Director J.J. Abrams said, “My goal is to take the ‘Mission’ franchise and
re-interpret it to make a movie that is familiar, but absolutely brand new.
Kanye has done just that with his version of the classic Lalo Schifrin theme, and we’re thrilled to be working with him.”
Producer Paula Wagner added, “With each ‘Mission’ installment, we have
always put a team together that was representative of the very best at their respective crafts.  With the addition of Kanye West’s music to ‘M:i:III,’ we continue that tradition.  His powerful, emotional style is the perfect complement for the mix of drama and action that is in this film.”

“Mission: Impossible III” stars Tom Cruise and is directed by J.J. Abrams.
The film also stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Ving Rhames, Billy Crudup,
Michelle Monaghan, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Keri Russell, Maggie Q, and Laurence Fishburne.  The action thriller was shot on location in Shanghai, Rome, Berlin, and parts of the United States.  “Mission: Impossible III” is
scheduled for release on May 5, 2006.  Tom Cruise returns as Special Agent Ethan Hunt, who faces the mission of his life in “Mission: Impossible III.” Director J.J. Abrams ("Lost," “Alias")brings his unique blend of action and drama to the billion-dollar franchise.
Paramount Pictures presents a Cruise|Wagner production, “Mission:
Impossible III.” The film is directed by J.J. Abrams, from a screenplay
