J.J. Abrams take on the Mission: Impossible film franchise is one of my favorites in the series. The third installment provided the audiences with an evil Phillip Seymour Hoffman (which he’s great in), and introduced a wife for Ethan Hunt. The inclusion of Michelle Monaghan not only fit the overall tone of the film, but also provided some emotional heft (something lacking in previous installments, quite frankly). And it appears that she’ll be making a comeback in Christopher McQuarrie’s follow up to Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation. McQuarrie shared the news on his Instagram account:
I’m glad she’s back.
