Friday evening, Academy Award Winner Christopher Mcquarrie took to Instagram to post a headshot of actress Hayley Atwell with the caption, “Should you choose to accept…”
This seemingly confirms that the actress will indeed be appearing in the next installment of the hit franchise.
This isn’t the first time that McQuarrie has used social media to break major news though. Back in January, McQuarrie revealed to his followers on Twitter that he had signed on to write and direct not just one, but the next two Mission: Impossible films.
While Tom Cruise is expected to reprise his role as the infamous Ethan Hunt, this is only the first bit of casting news we’ve received for the film. We’re sure there’ll be more soon though.
