Haley Atwell joins new ‘Mission Impossible films, fans question Rebecca Ferguson’s future

Paramount Pictures signed Rogue Nation and Fallout writer/director Christopher McQuarrie to return for both Mission: Impossible 7 and Mission: Impossible 8, to be shot back-to-back and now adds Agent Carter star Haley Atwell for a key role in both films.

Atwell posted this on Instagram: “I had a go at a ‘photo grid’ in an attempt to display some tech-savvy-millennial skills. For those of you who don’t know, this involves nine separate posts loaded one at a time which only come together as a complete image when someone views the profile page. Some of the comments were of the ‘wot-is-goin-on-u-can’t-frame-a-picture, mate’ variety SO, to ease the confusion, here is my news in one post….. I’m thrilled to have joined @tomcruise and @christophermcquarrie for the next TWO Mission Impossible movies. To have gone from a classical play in the west-end to an audio book recording of a great new novel to a Disney/Marvel animation and now the female lead in a huge action franchise is the kind of variety that fuels my curiosity and keeps me learning and striving to be better and do better. I can’t wait to start sharing this adventure with you. Mostly in the form of effusive, sweaty ranting about stunt training while spontaneously vomiting with excitement/exhaustion. Lucky you. 🕺”

Collider communicated the question most fans are already asking: “That raises some questions regarding Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), who was the female lead in both Rogue Nation and Fallout and is returning for the Mission sequels. Will she be killed off mid-movie, or is Ilsa more of a supporting character this time around? ”

Later adding “Vanessa Kirby was a wonderful addition to Fallout as White Widow, and Angela Bassett made a terrific new IMF director. It’s unconfirmed if one or both of them will be back, but here’s hoping. One imagines Michelle Monaghan is done, as it was nice to see the Ethan/Julie relationship finally find closure at the end of Fallout with Monaghan’s emotional return.”

Mission: Impossible 7 is due out in theaters on July 23, 2021. We expect Mission: Impossible 8 to follow the following year on August 5, 2022.
