Pom Klementieff has joined the Mission: Impossible film franchise, set to appear in the upcoming seventh and eighth offerings.
Pom Klementieff will temporarily take leave of the Guardians of the Galaxy film franchise to accept the mission of tackling a new film franchise, joining Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt and company in the upcoming Mission: Impossible movies.
Director Christopher McQuarrie has made the casting of Klementieff official, confirming her presence for not just 2021’s untitled Mission: Impossible 7, but 2022’s (also untitled) follow-up, Mission: Impossible 8. The director dropped the news in a tweet that, while short on specific character details, did provide a potent tease asking, “How do you spell femme fatale?” Afterwards, Klementieff would further tease in her reply, stating, “Mischief: Accepted.”
