Kanye West has been chosen to reinterpret the classic “Mission: Impossible” theme song for the third installment in the Tom Cruise film franchise, which opens May 5 in U.S. theaters.

The theme was previously performed by the U2 rhythm section of Larry Mullen Jr. and Adam Clayton for the 1996 original, and by Limp Bizkit for the 2000 sequel.

There has yet to be an announcement on which label will release the “M:I III” soundtrack. The previous albums in the series have sold a combined 2 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
