It’s not the solo Agent Carter movie we’re all (still) secretly holding out for, but the icon that is Hayley Atwell has confirmed that she’s heading back to the big screen not once, but twice.
Following last week’s news that Hayley is set to star in the next Mission: Impossible jaunt alongside Tom Cruise, the Marvel star has now revealed that she’ll be taking on a bigger role than we first thought.
Sharing the exciting news on Instagram, Hayley bemoaned her failed “tech-savvy-millennial skills” before telling fans that she has officially joined the cast for the next “TWO” Mission: Impossible movies.
“To have gone from a classical play in the west-end to an audio book recording of a great new novel to a Disney/Marvel animation and now the female lead in a huge action franchise is the kind of variety that fuels my curiosity and keeps me learning and striving to be better and do better,” she wrote.
Joking about the physical challenges her next “adventure” will present, the actress promised to share every moment of her M:I journey with fans – even the stuff they probably don’t want to see.
Hayley added: “I can’t wait to start sharing this adventure with you. Mostly in the form of effusive, sweaty ranting about stunt training while spontaneously vomiting with excitement/exhaustion. Lucky you.”
Thought Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt was the coolest character in the M:I franchise? Think again, folks.
Mission: Impossible 7 is currently due for a release on July 23, 2021, while an eighth film has already been pencilled in for a release on August 5, 2022.
