MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 7 & 8 Add Rob Delaney, Charles Parnell, Indira Varma, Mark Gatiss, & Cary Elwes
Breaking news from the set of Mission: Impossible 7, as director Chris McQuarrie has announced the additions of Rob Delaney, Charles Parnell, Indira Varma, Mark Gatiss, & Cary Elwes to the all-star cast!
The cast of Mission: Impossible 7 & 8 just got a whole lot bigger, as director Chris McQuarrie has now announced the additions of Rob Delaney (Deadpool 2; Hobbs & Shaw), Charles Parnell (Top Gun: Maverick; Transformers: Age of Extinction), Indira Varma (Game of Thrones; Carnival Row), Mark Gatiss (The Father; The Favourite), and Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride; Saw).
Further details on their respective characters are currently being held under lock-and-key at the IMF, but they join an extremely star-studded cast led by 3x Academy Award-nominee Tom Cruise (Top Gun: Maverick; Mission: Impossible - Fallout) as Ethan Hunt.
McQuarrie notes that all five franchise newcomers will appear in both the currently filming Mission: Impossible 7 and its already announced sequel Mission: Impossible 8, which is tentatively expected to begin production at the tail-end of this calendar year or early 2022 after the cast and crew take a well-deserved hiatus and Cruise completes his promotional commitments for Joseph Kosinski's upcoming summer actioner Top Gun: Maverick.
Additionally, over the past few days, McQuarrie has shared a first look at the return of Henry Czerny as Eugene Kittridge and possibly teased a cameo from Alec Baldwin as Alan Hunley...
In addition to Cruise as the headliner, the highly anticipated McQ-directed action blockbuster also stars Ving Rhames (Mission: Impossible - Fallout, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation), Simon Pegg (Mission: Impossible - Fallout, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible - Fallout, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation), Hayley Atwell (Avengers: Endgame; Captain America: The First Avenger), Pom Klementieff (Avengers: Endgame; Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2), Vanessa Kirby (Mission: Impossible - Fallout; Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw), Shea Whigham (Perry Mason; Marvel's Agent Carter), Henry Czerny (Mission: Impossible; Supergirl), Esai Morales (Titans; La Bamba), and Angela Bassett (Soul; Mission: Impossible - Fallout).
Mission: Impossible 7 lights the fuse in theaters on November 19, 2021; followed by Mission: Impossible 8 on November 4, 2022.
