The Mission: Impossible movies are odd in the sense that they appear to be getting better. While the first three movies range from “good” to “terrible” the second trilogy is proving much more consistent. The series improved when it abandoned the “one man against the world” storytelling for more team based stories.
Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg joined series mainstays Tom Cruise and Ving Rhames but the movies haven’t had a consistent female lead yet. Rebecca Ferguson in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation was considered to be the breakout star and while she is confirmed to return Variety confirmed that they are adding another woman to the cast. Vanessa Kirby, who is mostly known for her role as Princess Margaret on The Crown, was added to the cast in a mysterious new role similar to that of Ferguson in the previous movie in Mission: Impossible 6.
Mission: Impossible 6 will be released on July 28, 2018.
