Since Reckoning is intended to be the first of a two-part closer to Hunt’s saga, it’s bringing back some old faces from previous movies: in addition to Hunt’s team of Benji (Simon Pegg), Luther (Ving Rhames), and Ilsa (Rebecca Ferguson), returning castmates include Vanessa Kirby’s White Widow from Fallout, along with Henry Czerny as Eugene Kittridge from the original film. New to the film are Marvel alums Pom Klementieff and Haley Atwell, beloved character actor Shea Whigham, and Esai Morales as the film’s primary baddie. Those characters are all expected to return for Dead Reckoning’s second installment in 2024.


Mission: Impossible—Dead Reckoning Part One will release in theaters on July 14, 2023.
