“Agent Carter” and “Captain America” star Hayley Atwell appears to be joining the cast of the next “Mission: Impossible” film at Paramount Pictures and Skydance.
Christopher McQuarrie, who penned and directed both the fifth film (‘Rogue Nation’) and last year’s sixth entry ‘Fallout’, has signed a deal to return to write and direct the next two films. Today he teased Atwell’s involvement with a black-and-white headshot on top of a file folder with the IMF logo stamped on it and the caption “should you choose to accept”.
The plan is for both films to be shot back-to-back over much of next year. The seventh film will premiere July 23rd 2021 and the eighth will hit August 5th 2022.
