Mission: Impossible 7 is coming and its writer and director, Christopher McQuarrie has revealed that Agent Eugene Kittridge will be making a comeback.
It’s been 25 years since the character was last seen in a Mission: Impossible movie.
Henry Czerny played the character in the very first Mission: Impossible movie that came out back in 1996.
He hasn’t been seen in the franchise since and it’s about time he is brought back into the fold.
Christopher McQuarrie has been revealing these casting details via his Twitter account.
Another director doing this has been Matt Reeves who’s been announcing casting news for his upcoming DC Comics movie The Batman.
Here’s what McQuarrie wrote in his tweet: “There is no escaping the past… #MI7MI8.”
It seems as though Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt is going to be coming up against a villain from his past.

This will be fun to see. McQuarrie’s tweet also confirms that Czerny’s Kittridge will be both in Mission: Impossible 7 and 8.
Will Kittridge be teaming up with Hunt in this upcoming Mission: Impossible movie? We don’t know yet.
He might actually end up going against Hunt, which means he would be having to deal with his past.
This would be an interesting twist in the Mission: Impossible franchise.
Therefore, this movie should then be part of a two-movie story arch.
I like the idea of McQuarrie and Cruise developing a Mission: Impossible story which will span over two movies.
What do you make of this news? Are you looking forward to watching Mission: Impossible 7?
