The nominees for the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards have been revealed – and Rebecca Ferguson received a nomination for “Best Actress in an Action Movie” for her role as Ilsa Faust in Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation! The film was also nominated for “Best Action Movie”, and Tom Cruise got one for “Best Actor in an Action Movie.” The awards will be handed out in January, next year, and Rebecca will battle with Emily Blunt (Sicario), Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World), Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2) and Charlize Theron (Mad Max: Fury Road) for the win. A big congrats to Rebecca for being nominated!
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.
Great news! Rebecca Ferguson is featured in the pages of the December issue of Swedish Elle magazine. It’s a brand new (absolutely stunning!) photoshoot and an interesting article on Rebecca’s year as well. Scans from the issue have been added to our photo gallery. Since Swedish is my native language, would you want me to translate the interview for the site? Let me know!
According to Variety, Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation writer-director Christopher McQuarrie will return to write as well as possibly direct the next installment. Paramount is also holding an option for Rebecca Ferguson to reprise her role as Ilsa Faust, one of the most-praised parts of the well-received last film. No word yet if Rebecca will sign on to do it (she is after all lining up project after project these days!), but M:I 6 is aiming to start filming in August next year, so we will know for sure by then. Do you want Ferguson to play Ilsa one more time?
Yesterday, one of this summer’s biggest hits – Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation – was released on Digital HD. To celebrate the long awaited release, I have added high-definition screen captures from Rebecca’s scenes in the film. Ferguson received rave reviews for her portrayal of the agent Ilsa Faust, a role that has opened doors to more fantastic projects that are in the pipeline for her. Click on the previews below to see the screen captures in the photo gallery.
What a cast this is turning out to be! Allison Janney and Lisa Kudrow have now joined the cast of DreamWorks’ adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ best-selling novel The Girl on the Train. They join an ensemble that already includes Emily Blunt, Rebecca Ferguson, Haley Bennett, Jared Leto and Justin Theroux, with Tate Taylor directing. Janney will play a police detective in the pic, while Kudrow is playing an unknown role as Monica.
The movie centers around Rachel, a troubled alcoholic whose husband left her for his mistress, who becomes fascinated by a seemingly perfect couple whose home she passes while riding the train. But after she thinks she witnesses a murder, she begins to realize that she may have been involved in the crime. The Girl on the Train starts filming today, and is set to arrive in theaters on October 7, next year.
