Is it an Impossible task to bring a successful tv show to film?   Come with us as we dissect the first Mission: Impossible movie!

For the most part, Spy Movies have had their origin from books:  James Bond, Bourne Identity, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan stories, John Le Carre’s books, etc.   However, in 1996, Paramount Pictures and Cruise/Wagner Productions, released the first film of the Mission: Impossible series, based on the TV show.   Other spy-based tv shows wouldn’t get their US big-screen debuts until years later (namely I Spy in 2002 and Get Smart in 2008, even the Man From Uncle in 2013).
