Mission: Impossible 7 And 8 Are Bringing Back A Key Character From The 1996 Movie

Mission: Impossible 7 And 8 Are Bringing Back A Key Character From The 1996 Movie

The Mission: Impossible series has given fans plenty of excitement, twists and surprises over the years. But as the franchise has grown, it’s also stayed true to its roots. And that is clearer than ever, now that we’ve learned that Mission: Impossible 7 and 8 will feature the return of a key character from the very first film.

On February 1, Christopher McQuarrie -- who is directing both of the upcoming installments -- shared an exciting, yet cryptic, bit of casting news on Twitter. First, there was the message:

There is no escaping the past... #MI7MI8

Then, there was the accompanying picture -- of Henry Czerny, circa 1996. The picture of the actor, who has most recently appeared in Sharp Objects and Ready or Not, was enough for long-standing fans of the franchise to jump into action, because that all but confirms we will see Mission: Impossible’s IMF Director Eugene Kittridge once more. And it has been a while. The character played a key role in the original film, first suspecting, and then working with Ethan Hunt to root out Jim Phelps’ identity as the mole. But Kittridge was replaced as IMF Director in subsequent films, first by Swanbeck, and then later by Theodore Brassel.
