The female characters in the Mission: Impossible movies have been mostly interchangeable. Rebecca Ferguson stood out as Ilsa in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, however. Ferguson proved to be such a welcome addition to the M:I formula that she’s coming back for another mission.
According to Showbiz 411, Ferguson will reprise her role in Mission: Impossible 6 and notably become the franchise’s first leading lady to return for a second outing. Ferguson was also one of our choices for 2015’s breakout stars.
Mission: Impossible 6 will hit theaters in 2017 with Christopher McQuarrie returning to direct and Tom Cruise returning as Ethan Hunt.
