Paramount may not have anything to do with Fox’s Knight and Day, but since they’re back in the Tom Cruise business with both the upcoming Mission: Impossible 4 and their recently green-lit Len Grossman movie, they’re keeping close watch on its box office this week. According to Deadline’s Mike Fleming, a soft opening for Knight probably won’t mean the cancellation of M:I:4, though it might inspire the studio to “beef up the subplot that introduces a new and younger agent who becomes Ethan Hunt’s protege.” Great idea! Unless you’d like to see our chilling photo illustration turned into reality, you should probably go see Knight and Day immediately.
