Vanessa Kirby’s White Widow Returning for Mission: Impossible

-

Actress Vanessa Kirby has revealed in an interview with Glamour UK that she’ll be returning for either one or both of the two upcoming Mission: Impossible movies as the White Widow.

In the interview, she says: “I just wrapped filming a movie (Pieces of a Woman) about a couple who lose a baby with Shia LaBeouf who is now one of my best friends – I love him so much. It was extremely intense and very dark so going into training for Mission Impossible is slightly going to release it all.”

Kirby played Alanna Mitsopolis, a black market arms dealer also known as the White Widow, in the 2018 blockbuster Mission: Impossible – Fallout opposite Tom Cruise. Her credits also include The CrownFast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw and BBC’s Great Expectations.

She joins previously-announced cast members Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, Shea Whigham, Nicholas Hoult and Henry Czerny. Of course, Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg are expected to return as well.

Writer and director Christopher McQuarrie is returning to write and direct the next two Mission: Impossible movies, with the seventh and eighth films arriving on July 23, 2021 and August 5, 2022. Skydance Media founder and CEO David Ellison will again produce. The next two Mission: Impossible movies are expected to be shot back-to-back.

McQuarrie has written and directed the last two films, which were both big hits. Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation was released in 2015 and earned $682.7 million worldwide, while Mission: Impossible – Fallout grossed $791.1 million globally last year and is the biggest film in the franchise.

In Fallout, on a dangerous assignment to recover stolen plutonium, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) chooses to save his friends over the mission, allowing it to fall into the hands of a deadly network of highly skilled operatives intent on destroying civilization.

Now, with the world at risk, Ethan and his IMF team (Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson) are forced to work with a hard-hitting CIA agent (Henry Cavill) as they race against time to stop the nuclear threat.

The film also stars Sean Harris, Angela Bassett, Michelle Monaghan and Alec Baldwin.
