Rumor: Jessica Chastain offered lead role in Mission Impossible 5

04.24.2014

Tom Cruise will be back for MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 5 with his JACK REACHER director Christopher McQuarrie, and Schmoes Know has learned the filmmakers may be eyeing Jessica Chastain for a starring role in their film. There aren't many details on what her role might be in the fifth MISSION IMPOSSIBLE flick, but the site's source says "the offer is out to Miss Chastain to become Tom Cruise’s right hand woman," so it's probably as an IMF agent, and not as a love interest.

There's obviously a high demand for the talented actress, and we're going to be seeing a lot of Jessica Chastain in the upcoming months. Her ELEANOR RIGBY will be shown at this year's Cannes Film Festival, and she has three other films hitting theaters this year with INTERSTELLAR, MISS JULIE and A MOST VIOLENT YEAR. Chastain will also appear in Guillermo Del Toro's CRIMSON PEAK, and yesterday it was reported she's being considered to play Marilyn Monroe in Andrew Dominik's BLONDE as well.

While I enjoyed MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL, I didn't love it like most people (MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 3 is still my favorite from the franchise), however I'm definitely game for another adventure with Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt. MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 5 won't be in theaters until 2015, but there will likely be some more details and news on the Christopher McQuarrie film in the next few months.

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 5 will open on December 25th, 2015.

One day, before I die, I hope to see a Mission: Impossible movie that actually follows the old show's storytelling structure

I think the third one's my favourite. The fourth one was good, had excellent team dynamics and some memorable action sequences, but had a weak villain. Chastain would make a great addition to Ethan Hunt's crew. I hope Maggie Q gets a cameo!

I'm really hoping they stick with the same team they had in Ghost Protocol. I'm tired of the team member change-ups. It felt like at the end of GP they would stick with that team for future movies.

I really hope they bring back more characters from the other movies too, like Renner, Pegg, Rhames, Patton, etc.

I don't know about her being Hunt's right hand woman. I can see her as the villain though. She was very powerful in Zero Dark Thirty.

Ya MI3 was my fav by far, but honestly, I've enjoyed all to an extent. 2 was obviously so silly, but I like the each director has imprinted their own style on their entry in the franchise (but, I'm guessing that's kinda over - ohhhh man get Refn to do one).
Anyway, I really like these movies, but I think just Toms right hand woman is below her. I think she'd be better as a Phillip Hoffman like baddie. All the females from the MI movies really haven't been incredible award winning

All the females from the MI movies really haven't been incredible award winning actresses (but certainly haven't been bad), but Chastain is. I'll prolly be checking this out if they cast Bieber, but if I was Chastain I don't think I'd take that role, at least as it sounds.

I hope this is true and she gets the role. She's a great actress and one of the best working today.
