Michelle Monaghan is set to return for the sixth film in the “Mission: Impossible” franchise following a major role in the third film and a cameo in the fourth.
Monaghan’s character was married to Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt in J.J. Abrams’ “Mission: Impossible III” which gave Hunt a wife and a backstory that seemingly only consisted of the idea he liked holding barbeques with friends.
After that, she was mostly used as leverage. In Brad Bird’s “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” it was revealed they had separated and she had gone into hiding for her own protection.
Now she’s back for Christopher McQuarrie’s new film which is said to be a darker, more serious and more emotional tale than the two most recent entries.
Rebecca Ferguson, Henry Cavill, Vanessa Kirby, Alec Baldwin and Angela Bassett also star in the new film which is scheduled for release on July 27th 2018.
