Hayley Atwell Confirms She'll Be in Both of the Upcoming MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE Sequels
Not long ago we learned that Agent Carter star Hayley Atwell joined the cast of the upcoming Mission: Impossible sequel. What we didn’t know is if she would be in both of the upcoming sequels. Well, Atwell has confirmed that she will, if fact, be in both films. She recently shared the following 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.”
I’m a fan of Atwell, and I love that she is joining this franchise. We don’t know who she’s playing in the series, but it seems like she will be a natural fit for the franchise. It’ll be interesting to see who she’ll be playing, but I kinda hope that she will be a villain.
The upcoming Mission: Impossible sequels will continue Ethan Hunt’s adventures, and Christopher McQuarrie is directing both of them. The seventh film will be released on July 23rd, 2021, while an eighth installment will be released on August 5th, 2022.
While I’m excited that Atwell is joining the films, I’m more excited about seeing what kind of insane stunts are being planned for Tom Cruise!
