The French actress is no stranger to the action genre as she made her Hollywood debut in Oscar winner Spike Lee’s 2013 American remake of Oldboy. Klementieff will next be seen in Netflix’s superhero film Thunder Force starring alongside Octavia Spencer and Melissa McCarthy, and in the highly-anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 reprising her role as Mantis.

Joining Cruise and Atwell are returning cast members Rebecca Ferguson (Doctor Sleep), Simon Pegg (Ready Player One) and Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction).

Following the large critical and commercial success of the past two installments, writer/director Christopher McQuarrie signed a new deal with Paramount to return to write and direct the next two installments, turning down other studio offers to continue his long-running partnership with franchise star Tom Cruise. Skydance Media, who joined the franchise with the fourth installment, Ghost Protocol, will be returning to produce the next two entries.

The Mission: Impossible franchise spans almost 25 years and six films, starting off with modest critical and major box office success in the first two films before launching its lead protagonist into grittier and more explosive stories, each film getting progressively better reviews than its predecessor, with the most recent installment, Fallout, earning the highest reviews for both the franchise and the action genre, currently maintaining a 97% approval rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes while also acquiring the highest box office gross of the franchise at over $790 million worldwide.
