She can currently be seen playing the young Princess Margaret in Netflix's The Crown, but Vanessa Kirby has accepted an assignment that will see her go from royal duty to blockbuster espionage, with news arriving via Variety that she has joined the cast of the next Mission Impossible movie.
Chris McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation) is preparing the sixth outing for the franchise, having developed the idea and script with Tom Cruise, and written it to once again direct. The story details, are, somewhat naturally, being kept in a hidden vault accessible only by lowering yourself down on a wire and entering several codes, but we do know the film will once more see Cruise's Ethan Hunt on a globe-trotting mission, including scenes shot in Paris.
Rebecca Ferguson is expected to return as the mysterious Ilsa Faust, and we would certainly figure on Simon Pegg and possibly Jeremy Renner slipping back into their roles. The cameras should be rolling this spring and the movie will be out in July next year.
