17 Mar – As if Tom Cruise alone is not reason enough to catch "Mission Impossible 6", another dose of action hunk just got thrown into the mix.
Henry Cavill, better known as the current silver screen Superman, has accepted the mission to star in the movie alongside Cruise.
The news was revealed by director Christopher McQuarrie himself, whose latest post on Instagram is filled with funny exchanges between him and the actor, much to fans' delight.
"Say, @henrycavill. Had a thought. Curious if you're interested in a role in the 6th installment of Mission: Impossible. No pressure," read the post by McQuarrie.
"How can I say no to a man with such perfect hair....." was Cavill's reply in the post's comment section.
In what would probably go down as the most casual contract negotiation, McQuarrie then listed "must enjoy extreme heights, high speeds, motor vehicles of all varieties (especially aircraft), practical stunts, firearms, and sporadic exposition" as the requirements the 33-year-old will need to meet in order to play the undisclosed part.
After several more comments back and forth to each other, the duo finally sealed the deal with Cavill agreeing to join and McQuarrie, in true "Mission Impossible" spirit, saying, "Outstanding. Welcome aboard. Your social media account will self destruct in 5 seconds."
This will not be the first time for Cavill to play a spy as he previously starred in "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.". He can be seen reprising his Superman role again in the upcoming "Justice League Part One".
"Mission Impossible 6" is expected to hit cinemas on 26 July 2018.
