Monaghan starred in 2006’s “Mission: Impossible III” as a doctor named Julia Meade, the fiance of Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt character. Following a gun battle in which she successfully dispatched two attackers, Hunt revealed to her that he works as a secret agent. The movie ended with the pair heading for a honeymoon. She also appeared at the end of 2011’s “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol.”

McQuarrie began shooting the Paramount tentpole on April 8 in Paris. Producers are J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, Tom Cruise, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger.

Rebecca Ferguson, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Alec Baldwin and Sean Harris are reprising their roles from previous films while Henry Cavill, Vanessa Kirby and Sian Brooke have come on board as new characters. Paramount has set a July 27, 2018 release date.

Monaghan stars in Hulu’s drama “The Path” with Aaron Paul and Hugh Dancy. She  was recently seen in “Patriots Day” and “Sleepless.” She recently wrapped production on “Saint Judy,” starring as immigration attorney Judy Wood.

    It’s about time to bring Michelle back to MI series. Underrated, talented actress who should deserve more roles in more movies. But Chris McQuarrie- please give her a stronger role this time instead of making her the hostage and seeing her crying throughout the movie.

    Rewatch the last 10 minutes of the movie.

    I commented on related articles I didn’t (& still don’t) recall seeing her in “Ghost Protocol”. However, I still say that one should have marked the end for Hunt (for any reason) & Renner’s character to take over as the leader.

    That said/written, Michelle is among the best parts of “Due Date”, “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang”, & any “Mission” film she appears in.
