Hayley Atwell set to join Tom Cruise in the seventh Mission: Impossible film

Hayley Atwell is set to join the cast of the next Mission: Impossible film, the seventh in the franchise.

The news was confirmed by director Christopher McQuarrie via Instagram on Friday, where he shared a snap of the actress' headshot and the iconic movie quote: 'Should you choose to accept...'

The Captain America star, 37, also went on to share the same image as she added to his caption by writing, 'Mission: Accepted. Though I’m not the sort to follow orders...'

Hayley made a name for herself as Agent Carter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, while she has also starred in shows like Conviction and Howard's End.

She will join lead star Tom Cruise, who has already been confirmed to reprise his role as secret agent Ethan Hunt, continuing the character's dramatic storyline.

Meanwhile, the director, who made both Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation and Fallout, is on board to write and make the next two films in the franchise.

Last month, the actor was seen getting taught how to paraglide under the watchful eye of an instructor.

Sporting a safety helmet and sunglasses, the actor, 57, was guided through take-offs and landings as he sat in a safety harness beneath the enormous, wing shaped sail.

The actor was believed to be taking tuition ahead of his involvement in the new film, and his decision to train in the French Alps suggests the area may well play a part in his latest blockbuster. 

Accompanied by small crew, Cruise looked completely focused on the task at hand as he worked on his posture and balance while hovering several feet above the ground.

He was also seen attempting to seamlessly land without losing his footing on the uneven ground as his team looked on from the sidelines.

Paragliding involves navigating a large fabric canopy, traditionally made from non-porous polyester or nylon, while suspended below in a buckled harness.

Without the use of an engine, paragliders can often cover hundreds of kilometres while gliding at altitudes of up to 24,000 ft.

While Cruise didn't quite reach those heights, but he appeared to be comfortable in the harness while working on his movement both in the air and on the ground.
