Rebecca Ferguson to Return for Mission: Impossible 6 http://www.comingsoon.net/movies/ne...n-to-return-for-mission-impossible-6#/slide/1 Last week, it was confirmed Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation director and co-writer Christopher McQuarrie would return to helm the upcoming sixth film in the long running series, and now ShowBiz411 reports that Rogue Nation star Rebecca Ferguson will also return. This marks the first time that a leading lady has reprised her role in a Mission: Impossible film, though Mission: Impossible III‘s Michelle Monaghan did re-appear in an uncredited cameo for Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. It was previously reported that production on the film could begin as early as August 2016. McQuarrie will write and direct the film, which will see the return of Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt. This also marks the first time a director has helmed more than one film in the franchise. Brian De Palma directed the first Mission: Impossible, which was followed by sequels directed by John Woo, J.J, Abrams and Brad Bird.
