Even though it might have given some strong competition for a certain Martini-swirling super agent, Mission: Impossible failed to light the fuse when it came to villains. Besides the late and ever so great Phillip Seymour Hoffman in Mission: Impossible 3 there hasn’t really been a big bad we’ve hoped Ethan Hunt would take out other than Owen Davian but all that could change thanks to the recent addition of Sean Harris in Mission: Impossible 5.
Whilst trades might still be reporting that the Prometheus and Deliver Us From Evil star might not be on board just yet, director Christopher McQuarrie has confirmed on that social soapbox known as Twitter that is indeed on board.
Welcome, Sean Harris #MI5Diary

Expect further details to trickle out as filming continues for Mission: Impossible – The Super Secret Something Something that’s set for release December next year.
