Tom Cruise's 'Mission: Impossible 8' Adds 'Mandalorian' and 'Love Lies Bleeding' Star

Tom Cruise’s new movie, Mission: Impossible 8, is in the process of being filmed, and the sequel to last year’s Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One promises to deliver us yet another action-packed installment. And while the release date has been pushed back a whole year, updates are coming in quickly, and we have learned that Katy O’Brian has joined the movie cast in an unspecified role, as of the time of writing.

This piece of information is definitely welcome, as O’Brian has recently received praise for playing Jackie in the romantic thriller Love Lies Bleeding alongside Kristen Stewart, with Jena Malone, Anna Baryshnikov, Dave Franco, and Ed Harris also starring. Disney and MCU fans might know O’Brian from Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, appearing as Jetorra, but also from The Mandalorian, where O’Brien played the treacherous Elia Kane. Earlier television appearances include The Walking Dead, How to Get Away with Murder, Black Lightning, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Westworld.

This is all we know about O’Brian’s involvement in Cruise’s upcoming film, but more updates are sure to come in the upcoming months. The movie itself was initially titled Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two, but the title has since been changed to Mission: Impossible 8, pending a new official title. The change suggests that the movie will explore a different narrative, aside from finishing what has been started in the previous movie. The initial release date was  June 28, 2024, but was ultimately pushed back to May 23, 2025.

Aside from O’Brian and Cruise, the movie will also probably see the return of Hayley Atwell, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, and Vanessa Kirby, so fans can be excited about the sequel. Knowing Cruise’s dedication to his work, we have no doubt that the upcoming sequel will be a great one and that O’Brian’s role will be a fitting one in every aspect imaginable.

This is all we have as of the time of writing, but be sure to keep following us for more information on the upcoming sequel to one of the biggest franchises in movie history.
