Actor Hannah Waddingham, famous for her role in 'Ted Lasso', will be next seen in 'Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part Two'.
Christopher McQuarrie, the writer of the two upcoming 'Dead Reckoning' films, revealed the casting on his Instagram account on Friday.
He captioned the photo of Waddingham with a cryptic tease, writing "God Speed Dead Reckoning."
Franchise star Tom Cruise returns as Ethan Hunt in the seventh, and penultimate, instalment of his long-standing, action franchise.
It was previously reported that he was filming the eighth movie aboard a U.S. aircraft carrier in the Adriatic Sea, which is where the photo of Waddingham appears to be taken.
Dead Reckoning Part One is set to hit theatres on July 14, 2023, and the final film, currently titled Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part Two', is already scheduled less than a year later for June 28, 2024.
Actor Ving Rhames, who plays Luther Stickell, Simon Pegg's Benjji Dunn and Rebecca Ferguson's Ilsa Faust are all returning for 'Dead Reckoning Part One'.
The seventh film has a few callbacks from the past, including Vanessa Kirby as Alanna Mitsopolis, a black-market arms dealer who's the daughter of Max Mitsopolis, played by Vanessa Redgraves in the first 'Mission: Impossible' in 1996.
Henry Czerny also returns as Eugene Kittridge, the former director of the IMF who's mysteriously back from the original 'Mission: Impossible'.
There's also Hayley Atwell, Shea Wigham, Frederick Schmidt and Esai Morales, who plays the villain.
Pom Klementieff, Rob Delaney, Cary Elwes, Indira Varma, Mark Gatiss, Charles Parnell, Greg Davis, Marcin Dorocinski, Lampros Kalfuntzos, Mariela Garriga and Antonio Bustorff are also featured in the cast.
