Episode Thirty-Nine - Brad Bird Interview, Part 1 (Director of ‘Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol’)

This is it! The first part of our epic conversation with the one and only Brad Bird, director of “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol!” In this episode we discuss what made him choose “Mission: Impossible” for his first live action-feature, his vision for the title sequence and how he wanted it to be different from other entries, and just how close Vanessa Redgrave came to reprising her role of Max in the sequel (it’s probably much closer than you’d think). Bird also recounts an alternate opening that had us shook. All of this and much more in this very special episode!
