Writer/Director Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects, Jack Reacher, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) took to instagram to drop a cryptic announcement inviting Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) to join the cast of Mission: Impossible 6. Cavill will join Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner for the sequel to the critically acclaimed Rogue Nation.
The twitter conversation between McQuarrie and Cavill continued and transpired as follows (via Deadline):
“@henrycavill excellent. Just a few caveats: must enjoy extreme heights, high speeds, motor vehicles of all varieties (especially aircraft), practical stunts, firearms, and sporadic exposition. All good?”
“@christophermcquarrie only if I get to fly for real.”
“@henrycavill I do believe I specified practical stunts. You in?”
“Oh ok…..I’m in!” Cavill replied.
The director then capped off the convo in a Mission:Impossible-esque fashion. “@henrycavill Outstanding. Welcome aboard. Your social media account will self destruct in 5 seconds.”
