Rogue Nation's Rebecca Ferguson to return for Mission: Impossible 6

With 5 entries in the Tom Cruise spy franchise, audience members may be wondering they could possibly go with a 6th film. I mean, Tom hung out of a freakin' plane! Clearly the man has more shit that he'd like to hang out of, as production on the 6th film will begin in 2016. Writer/director Christopher McQuarrie has already confirmed his involvement in the follow-up, marking the first time in the series that a director has returned. In another first, it seems as if the leading lady of the last film will be playing a bit part in the sequel. I'm, of course, referring to the lovely Rebecca Ferguson as Ilsa Faust.

Showbizz 411 reports that Ferguson's involvement is a done deal, and that the papers are already signed for her to return. Her character's equal mix of beauty and kick-assery proved to compliment Ethan Hunt in a really exciting way, helping to solidify an already great ensemble cast. Clearly Paramount felt the same way, as she was optioned to return if the need arose. Technically, we've never gotten a straight-up sequel in the MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE franchise, so I'm excited to see which story threads McQuarrie chooses to continue in MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 6.

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 6 will begin production in August of 2016.

Well that's a first for the franchise. Man, I wished Paula Patton would return as well. Even just for a small role or a nod that her character is still alive and well somewhere. It feels a bit unfair that everyone from Ghost Protocol returned in Rogue Nation except for her, though she was doing Warcraft at the time.

She was pretty good in Rogue Nation so that's positive news. I would like to see her and Paula Patton duke it out, but not sure how they'd do something like that. Rogue Nation was a great time at the movies and i can't wait for the next MI.

I would rather call it a step back. The villain was way better in MI:3 and the Team members had way more to do in MI:4, while MI:5 was once again a Tom Cruise solo-Show with a great first half and and lackluster final.

The thrid movie did have the best villain. The fourth had the best stunts, the fifth, the best balance (it's been Tom Cruise's show ever since the killed his team off in the first movie).

She was great, but I wish they'd bring back Paula Patton too. I definitely felt her absence in Rogue Nation.

Rogue Nation was a bit of a letdown compared to MI 3 and 4 but Ferguson was great. And while Im glad she will be back, Im curious what the writers got in store for her, now that her storyline was wraped up.

Ilsa in MI:5 is kind of in a bad spot so her character isn't very cheery, if not downright dour. I'm not familiar with the actress' other work, so maybe that's just her as a person, but I'm hoping Ilsa will be having a bit more fun the next go around.

Even though this is breaking formula, I'm excited to see this team back and Ferguson was terrific (and smokin' hot).

She wasn't very good in rouge nation, in fairness it wasn't a very good film. Easily one of the franchises low points.

And elder I don't think it's an awful film just not one of my favs from the franchise, I prefer the less actiony part 1 & 3.

Great news. She was easily one of the best parts of Rogue Nation and was able to keep her own against Cruise.

Sort of seems like Mission Impossible is perhaps pulling a Spectre.

Pulling a spectre lol. Showing how young and not very knowledgeable about cinema you really are if that's the only spy follow up you can think of.

I was using a reference that was recent. But thanks for the compliment. You seem like a really cool person.

Don't see why everyone gangs up on the Soloist. His comment here was pretty fair.

His comments are never fair. I'd say they are cringeworthy and usually miles off the mark. He tries to hard to be clever but comes off looking like a 12 trying to appear trying to impress his elders. Need to stop posting nonsense and people will leave him alone.

I agree with Filmazo 100%. Every comment is about how he saw something in an actor years prior to something that is now being revered, every other movie being his most anticipated movie of the year (or best, in retrospect)...basically Filmazo put it very accurately. He's like that annoying kid in school who acts like a know-it-all when in reality, most of what is said is either uninformed or incredibly superficial.
