According to Showbiz 411, the contract for Rebecca Ferguson is “signed, sealed and delivered” – which means that Ilsa Faust will get back into action in Mission: Impossible 6! Ferguson is also the first leading lady to appear in more than one M:I film (other than Michelle Monaghan’s small cameo in Ghost Protocol), which further proves how much everyone — audiences, the studio, Cruise, et al. — loves her.
Neither Paramount nor Ferguson’s rep have confirmed her return for the sequel, says Screen Crush. It begins production next August for a 2017 release. Ferguson is in high-demand right now thanks to Rogue Nation; she’s appearing next opposite Emily Blunt in the thriller The Girl on the Train and with Michael Fassbender in The Snowman. She’s also been rumored for a part in Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant.
