Other Actors Fans Can Anticipate Seeing in the Mission: Impossible Sequel

Taking the most obvious ones out of the way, Ethan’s IMF partners, Ving Rhames as Luther Stickell and Simon Pegg’s Benji Dunn are set to make a comeback in the next mission as expected. However, the unfortunate demise of Rebecca Ferguson’s character, Ilsa Faust, at the hands of Gabriel means she won’t be returning for the upcoming installment, unlike Paris. Speaking to Empire Magazine, director Christopher McQuarrie said,

“It’s a very heroic death for that character. It is not in any way, shape, or form disposable. It’s a noble and heroic death. That, to me, is the hardest thing to find for a character. Her death was one of the first things we shot. But the reasons came later – and we were not satisfied the first time I cut the scene together without those reasons in place. As a scene all by itself in a vacuum, [it] didn’t work.”

Well, that certainly clarifies why Rebecca Ferguson won’t be making a return, disappointing fans who were hoping for a miraculous comeback. On the brighter side, Hayley Atwell will reprise her role as Grace. Additionally, Henry Czerny as Kittridge, Shea Whigham as Jasper Briggs, and Greg Tarzan Davis as Degas are all set to reunite for this thrilling journey as well. Additionally, Holt McCallany and Nick Offerman will also be joining the roaster!

With the strike being concluded now fans are anticipating an update following the sequel being pushed back to May 2025.
