‘Mission: Impossible 6’ Adds Frederick Schmidt; Jeremy Renner confirmed ‘out’

Supergirl actor Frederick Schmidt has joined Paramount’s Mission:Impossible 6, the sequel to the Tom Cruise-starring franchise. Meanwhile, some fans may be disappointed to learn that Jeremy Renner will indeed be absent from the new film.

Christopher McQuarrie returns as director in the film, with the plot still held under wraps.

McQuarrie is producing alongside Cruise, Don Granger, J.J. Abrams and Skydance Production’s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg.

Tom Cruise will be joined by Ving Rhames in the new MI film.

Renner has co-starred in both Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation as a member of Ethan Hunt’s Impossible Mission Force, however shooting on Avengers: Infinity War, and additional entries including Ant-Man and the Wasp have forced the actor to drop out the production.

Cruise will star with Rebecca Ferguson (Ilsa Faust), Simon Pegg (Benji Dunn), Ving Rhames (Luther Stickell), Alec Baldwin (Alan Hunley), plus Sean Harris will reprise the role of Rogue Nation villain, Solomon Lane.

Henry Cavill (Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Man of Steel), Sian Brooke (BBC’s Sherlock), and Vanessa Kirby (Netflix’s The Crown) are all newcomers to the MI franchise.

Schmidt, who made his film debut in 2014’s Snow In Paradise, recently appeared in Martin Koolhoven’s film Brimstone, which stars Dakota Fanning and Kit Harington and will star in Patient Zero with Natalie Dormer, Stanley Tucci and Matt Smith for Screen Gems.

The new film, nicknamed Mission:Impossible 6 is scheduled for release July 27, 2018.
