Kanye West joins Tom Cruise's 'Mission'
The Mission: Impossible franchise has one of the all-time great theme songs, but apparently, there’s no piece of music that Kanye West can’t improve. Paramount announced this morning that West’s cover of Lalo Schifrin’s composition will be featured in this summer’s Mission: Impossible III. In Paramount’s press release, Tom Cruise assures us that West’s rendition will ”blow people away.” Cruise, by the way, is a big Kanye fan, according to this MTV News account of Cruise’s enthusiastic presence at West’s pre-Grammy concert in Hollywood on Monday. How enthusiastic? Let’s just say it’s good there wasn’t a couch nearby.
