Actress Pom Klementieff, who broke out as fan-favorite Mantis in the MCU movies, has accepted a new mission: a Mission: Impossible. Better yet, two of them.
Deadline.com first broke the news regarding the actress signing on for two movies from the franchise. The news was later announced and confirmed via M:I writer/director Christopher McQuarrie‘s own Twitter account featuring a headshot of the actress.
Klementieff will be playing an unspecified role in the next two films, starring alongside Tom Cruise, who plays agent Ethan Hunt, as part of a team of agents that basically jump all over the world, risking their lives stopping evil scheming bad guys, while listening to self-destructing devices in the process.
McQuarrie has been overseeing the franchise since he took over with 2015’s Rogue Nation. He also confirmed back in January that despite his intention to step away, he’ll be back for the seventh and eighth installments, as a result of the succes of his last entry, last year’s Fallout.
Joining Klementieff in the franchise as a newcomer will be another MCU alum: Hayley Atwell, who portrayed Agent Sharon Carter. Atwell joined the cast previously about two mobths ago. Her character role is also undisclosed at the moment but her experience as a field agent in one universe will definitely transcend really well into the M:I universe.
The two new films will also see the return of actress Rebecca Ferguson and actors Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames, are also expected to return.
