Filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie is deep in the midst of production on the sixth “Mission: Impossible” film and has posted some new behind-the-scenes shots on his Instagram account.

The most notable is one featuring the four key women of the film – Vanessa Kirby as the new female lead, Angela Bassett as the director of the CIA, Rebecca Ferguson returning as Agent Ilsa Faust, and Michelle Monaghan returning as Julia Meade.

The four join Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Sean Harris and Alec Baldwin in the film which marks the first time a director has helmed more than one entry in the series.

“Mission: Impossible 6” opens July next year.
