Rebecca Ferguson confirmed for a return in ‘MI6’ with Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise may be the headliner on the Mission Impossible adventures, but Swedish actress Rebecca Ferguson won over fans in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, landing her a chance to be considered for the female lead in Gambit before returning to the franchise.

Now Showbiz 411 has the scoop that Ferguson’s deal is “signed, sealed and delivered for part 6,” meaning that her character Isla Faust will play some kind of role in the sequel.

Ferguson will be making history for the Mission: Impossible franchise as the first female star to return for a second time in a major role. Michelle Monaghan previously reprised her Mission: Impossible III role for a cameo in Ghost Protocol, but Ferguson’s return should be much different.

Set to start production in August 2016, Ferguson will be seen in the upcoming thriller The Girl on the Train, and also picked up the female lead in The Snowman starring Michael Fassbender.

There’s even a rumor that she’s wanted to play Captain Marvel in Marvel’s new film project.

In the past couple MI movies, it’s become much more of an ensemble effort, rather than just Cruise carrying the whole movie. So it wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility for the franchise to continue without him. After all, when his appeal seemed to be fading, Jeremy Renner was supposed to be set up to inherit the franchise, though that turned out not to be necessary.

Christopher McQuarrie will be back to write and direct Mission: Impossible 6, making him the first director to take on two films in the franchise, he and Ferguson are both shaking things up for the series.

No release date has been set yet, but a release sometime in the summer or Christmas season of 2017 seems most likely.
