PROMETHEUS Actor Sean Harris Offered Villain Role in MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5


It seems Paramount and Skydance may have found the villain in upcoming fifth installment of the Mission Impossible franchise as Brit actor Sean Harris (Prometheus) has been offered the role.

Deadline reports that negotiations are underway, but nothing is set in stone just yet.

The fifth Mission Impossible flick is set to be directed by Chris McQuarrie from a script he co-wrote with Drew Pearce and Will Staples and starring Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt. Jeremy Renner as Brandt as well as the rest of the crew including Simon Pegg as Benji, Ving Rhames as Luther are coming back. Rebecca Ferguson and Alec Baldwin are joining the cast.

Best known as Micheletto from TV show The Borgias, one of the dumbass scientists in Prometheus will soon be seen alongside Jack O’Connell in Irish thriller ’71 and as Macduff opposite Michael Fassbender in a new film adaptation of Shakespeare’s play, Macbeth.

I’ll keep my fingers crossed this works out and there shouldn’t be any scheduling issues that would prevent Harris from reaching a deal.

Mission: Impossible 5 is scheduled to open on December 25th, 2015.
