Hayley Atwell has joined the cast of Tom Cruise's next "Mission: Impossible" film. Director Christopher McQuarrie made the announcement on his Instagram account Friday.
McQuarrie posted a photo of Atwell's headshot resting on top of an Impossible Missions Force binder, with the caption "Should you choose to accept…" Atwell didn't wait long before responding "Mission: Accepted. Though I'm not the sort to follow orders…"
Having taken the franchise to critical and commercial highs with Mission: Impossible - Fallout, McQuarrie and Cruise are set to reunite on the two new movies, which are set for release in July 2021 and August 2022 respectively. So far, the only other confirmed cast member for Mission: Impossible 7 is Rebecca Ferguson, who will be reprising her Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and Fallout role as Ilsa Faust.
