Atwell Confirms Double Impossible Role

The news broke last week that fan-favorite actress Hayley Atwell (“Agent Carter,” “Captain America: The First Avenger”) was joining the “Mission: Impossible” franchise with her being linked to Christopher McQuarrie’s seventh film in the series.

Now, using her social media account (via CBM), she has confirmed that her role involves her serving as the female lead of both the seventh and eighth films in the series which will be shot back to back from early next year.

Rebecca Ferguson is widely expected to reprise her role as Ilsa Faust for the new film as well but no cast beyond Cruise and Atwell are announced at this point.

“Mission: Impossible 7” opens in cinemas July 23rd 2021 while “Mission: Impossible 8” is expected to begin August 5th 2022.
