Rebecca Ferguson Takes Another “Mission”

Rebecca Ferguson To Join Mib Spin Off

Rebecca Ferguson, appearing on the British talk show “Lorraine” (via Metro) to promote the UK release of “The Kid Who Would Be King,” was asked by the host if we’ll see her in the next “Mission: Impossible” film and Ferguson quickly confirmed that she’s returning, saying: “you will.”

Ferguson’s Ilsa Faust character was introduced in the fifth film “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” the first in the series to be directed by Christopher McQuarrie, and has become a love interest/foil for Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt.

The next two films in the series are being shot back-to-back next year under McQuarrie’s direction and Ferguson is the first confirmed supporting cast member returning. Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames are also expected to be back, while there’s been rumors of Henry Cavill and Alec Baldwin appearing in flashback scenes.
