The Crown's Vanessa Kirby to join Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible 6

Mission: Impossible 6 Vanessa Kirby Tom Cruise

Production on MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 6 is expected to get underway this spring, and Tom Cruise will undoubtedly astound us with yet another series of mind-boggling stunts. The cast for the upcoming sequel, who will likely be standing by as Cruise climbs or falls off of something very tall, is still coming together and Variety reports that Vanessa Kirby is in final talks to join the Christopher McQuarrie film.

Vanessa Kirby, who has received plenty of praise for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth's sister, Princess Margaret, in Netflix's The Crown, will be playing one of the new leads in MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 6. Details on her characters aren't yet known, but Variety says that the role will likely be on the same level as Rebecca Ferguson's in MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - ROGUE NATION. Speaking of Ferguson, she's expected to return along with Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner. As for who else will turn up, Christopher McQuarrie recently hinted that a few old faces will be returning as well, "including people you would not expect to be back." McQuarrie has also said that MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 6 will present us with a "very different" Ethan Hunt as it dives deeper into what makes the secret agent tick.

I’ve seen five of these movies and I don’t know who Ethan Hunt is. One movie sort of dealt with his personal life; the other movies are about people speculating what’s really going on in Ethan’s head. I want to know who Ethan is in this movie, I want an emotional journey for this character, and Tom really embraced it. I don’t want to string together a bunch of action scenes, I want to actually deal with character’. So I put Ethan in a bunch of complicated moral quandaries, and I’m trying to find ways to connect them – and then, ironically, the way to connect them was through giant action scenes.

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 6 is set for a July 27, 2018 release.
