Mumbai: Tom Cruise made a mark for himself as an actor and filmmaker in Hollwyood and the star confesses that he dreamt of making films ever since he was four years old.
His next production venture "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol", in which he plays the lead role, is ready to hit screens Dec 21.
"I think it`s about the 20th film I have produced. I love cinema, I love movies and my whole life. Since when I was 4 years old, I remember I dreamt of making movies, so I started producing," said the 49-year-old actor who turned producer with "Mission Impossible" and continued it with movie like "Vanilla Sky", "The Last Samurai" and "Mission Impossible III".
"`Mission Impossible` was the film I produced and I came up with the idea of making the series into movies because, as a child, I saw the series and I thought it would make a great film because there wasn`t anything like that. And you know it`s fun hiring directors, writers and being involved in casting and story," he added.
"Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol" also features Paula Patton, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Michael Nyqvist and Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor.
Meanwhile, Cruise is very clear about continuing with the "Mission Impossible" franchise.
"There are lots of stories and lots of places to go," said the actor who has spent 30 long years in the movie industry.
Cruise made his acting debut with the 1981 movie "Endless Love" and so far he has worked in 30-odd films. His next release will be "Rock Of Ages" directed by Adam Shankman.
