Tom Cruise's new girlfriend Katie Holmes is being tipped to play the actor's love interest in the third installment of "Mission Impossible" reports Ananova.

Scarlett Johansson was previously attached to an earlier script version, and this week teen actress Lindsay Lohan said she was very keen on grabbing the part.

Now, according to the New York Post - insiders say the "Batman Begins" and "Dawson's Creek" star "will step up as the leading lady." Shooting is scheduled to begin shortly.

Thanks to 'Baby'.
