“Mission Impossible” producer Paula Wagner just plunked down $7.4 million for a Beverly Hills home, real estate gossip Yolanda Yakketyyak told The Real Deal.

Wagner — who was Tom Cruise’s agent before getting into the production business — and her husband, Rick Nicita, purchased the nearly 9,000-square-foot home from performance consultant Erik Bertrand Larssen and his wife, medical entrepreneur Louise Mohn, records show. 
An LLC attached to Mohn acquired the property for $4.2 million in 2008, property records show.

The contemporary Spanish-style abode features a library with black granite wall, an interior courtyard with a fountain and a saltwater pool with spa.

Built in 1989, the property was first listed in January for $8.9 million. Vanessa Sandin of Hilton & Hyland had the listing.

After Wagner left the Creative Artists Agency in the early 1990s, she created Cruise/Wagner Productions (C/W) with Cruise, producing films such as the original “Mission Impossible” trilogy, “Vanilla Sky,” and “The Last Samurai.”
