“The Crown” actress Vanessa Kirby is final talks for one of the new leading roles in the upcoming sixth installment in the “Mission: Impossible” film franchise at Paramount and Skydance.
Tom Cruise and Rebecca Ferguson are confirmed to return, while Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner are also expected back though to what extent is unclear. “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” writer/director Christopher McQuarrie returns to both pen and direct the film.
Details of whom Kirby will play are unknown, but the role is expected to be as large as Ferguson’s was in ‘Rogue Nation’.
Cruise will produce along with David Ellison and shooting is slated this spring ahead of a Summer 2018 release.
