A new image of the upcoming action movie sequel Mission: Impossible 7 features the return of a character not seen since 1996: Eugene Kittridge. Set to be replayed by Mission Impossible star Henry Czerny, the character’s return is sure to be a blast from the past for both the audience and Tom Cruise’s unstoppable secret agent Ethan Hunt.
While Kittridge’s role in Mission: Impossible 7 remains a mystery, director Christopher McQuarrie has previously teased that both this sequel and Mission: Impossible 8 will be the final installments of Ethan Hunt’s story, taking the hero back to the beginning and providing a much more emotional journey for the seemingly indestructible action hero.
The last time the public saw Eugene Kittridge, the dowdy former director of the Impossible Mission Force, was sitting quite comfortably in the role of antagonist, chasing Cruise’s IMF agent around the world, believing him to be a mole. Of course, Hunt does what he does best, running around non-stop, blowing everything up and stealing all kinds of classified documents to clear his name, with Kittridge ultimately being proved wrong and Hunt back in the IMF. Since it was a thorn in the side of the much younger, less experienced Ethan Hunt, it should be interesting to see how the relationship between the pair has changed after all these years, especially since the agent now so often has an impending apocalypse. stopped .
“I’ve been thinking about Kittridge going all the way back to Rogue Nation,” Christopher McQuarrie said of the character’s comeback last year. “I’m much more interested in finding something great for that character to do. Early on in this process, I felt there could be a place for Kittridge – the tone of the movie, the shape of the movie lent I realized, ‘Kittridge must be in this scene.’ I had written it without knowing who was in it, and then suddenly Kittridge came in and the scene changed, it was really fun I got to call Henry Czerny and say ‘You’re in! Are you in?’ He was great there in.”
Aside from Hunt’s past rearing its head in the form of Eugene Kittridge, Mission: Impossible 7 will have ties to more of Hunt’s past, and Vanessa Kirby will repeat her too Mission: Impossible – Fallout role as Alanna Mitsopolis, a black market arms dealer known as the White Widow and daughter of “Max”, a character also featured in the very first Mission Impossible.
