Henry Cavill Joins Mission: Impossible 6

March 17, 2017 | Posted by Joseph Lee

In a post on Instagram, director and writer Christopher McQuarrie asked Superman himself to join the cast of Mission: Impossible 6. It appears he has, because Variety reports that Henry Cavill is now officially on board the film.

The Paramount and Skydance film stars Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, and Jeremy Renner. Cavill is expected to play a “right hand” to the head of Cruise’s unit. Alec Baldwin played the boss in Rogue Nation but the role is generally recast with each film. Anthony Hopkins, Laurence Fishburne and Tom Wilkinson have also played the part in the past. Cruise will also produce the film with David Ellison.

Say, @henrycavill. Had a thought. Curious if you're interested in a role in the 6th installment of Mission: Impossible. No pressure.
