Mission: Impossible – Fallout, the sixth installment of the franchise.
With Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation) returning to the helm, the film finds Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team (Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames) along with some familiar allies (Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan) in a race against time after a mission gone wrong.
Also included in the cast are Sean Harris, Vanessa Kirby, Wes Bentley, and Frederick Schmidt.
Ving Rhames will reprise his role as Luther Stickell, Ethan Hunt’s oldest friend, continuing his streak as the only original cast member to appear in every film, outside of the face of the franchise, Tom Cruise.
Bassett will portray the new C.I.A. director, taking over for Alan Hunley (Alec Baldwin), who took over the IMF at the end of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation
The Mission: Impossible franchise launched in 1966 with the original CBS television series, which ran for seven seasons and 171 episodes. Mission: Impossible returned in 1988 with a rebooted series on ABC. It failed to find an audience, however, and was cancelled after two seasons. It was nearly a decade later that the Tom Cruise-led Mission: Impossible feature film would turn the small screen spy series into a hugely-successful cinematic franchise.
Mission: Impossible – Fallout will open in theaters on July 27, 2018
