MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5 Close to Super Creepy Villain in Sean Harris

I’m more excited for Mission: Impossible 5 than I have been for any other film in the franchise.  It seems like the series finally hit a nice stride in the 4th installment, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, so hopefully they used what worked about that film as a blueprint moving forward.  It’s also great news that Christopher McQuarrie is directing this time out.  I really enjoyed his prior collaboration with Tom Cruse, the adaptation of Jack Reacher, and he’s also coming off some seriously high praise for his script work on Edge of Tomorrow.

We’ve known for a while that Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner will be returning and that Ving Rhames is also going to rejoin the team.  We also know Alec Baldwin and Rebecca Ferguson will show up.  But what we haven’t heard much about until today is the villain, and now we’re getting word that Paramount has offered that part to Sean Harris (Deliver us From Evil, Prometheus).  Mission: Impossible 5 opens December 25, 2015.  Hit the jump for more on Sean Harris potentially signing on as the film’s villain.

mission-impossible-5Per Deadline:

Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions have offered the villain role in the Christopher McQuarrie-directed Mission: Impossible 5to Sean Harris. They are negotiating, though I’m being told don’t dress for it just yet. The Troika-repped British actor is best known for his work in The Borgias, and for such films as Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, 24 Hour Party People and Red Riding Trilogy.

If this pans out I think it will be an excellent fit. The Mission: Impossible franchise isn’t really known for its great villains, Philip Seymour Hoffman being the exception, so it would be nice to see someone suitably menacing fill that void.  And anyone who has seen Deliver us From Evil (or even his performance as Ian Curtis in 24 Hour Party People) knows that Harris fits that bill.

    Awesome. I wanted him as a Bond villain, but I think he would make a great addition as a memorable villain in the M:I series. He is a very frightening guy. He’s playing MacDuff in MacBeth, and I think he will be excellent.

    Cool, I’m on board. Harris is an intense actor. Played the shit out of his character on the Borgias. He should be an interesting villain.
