Filming on Mission Impossible 6 is well underway, but that won’t stop a few surprise casting announcements. Michelle Monaghan has revealed that she will return as Ethan Hunt’s wife Julia Meade in the sixth instalment of the Tom Cruise franchise. Other than a small appearance in Ghost Protocol, Monaghan hasn’t appeared in a Mission Impossible movie since she was introduced as Hunt’s wife in Mission Impossible III.
Director Christopher McQuarrie recently claimed that he wanted to make this the most emotional chapter of the franchise, and wanted to explore who Ethan Hunt is. Obviously, Monaghan’s re-introduction to the franchise will have an impact on the emotional side of Hunt’s character and it will be interesting to see how Julia is weaved into the narrative of Mission Impossible 6.
