Tom Cruise has two new recruits for Christopher McQuarrie's Mission: Impossible 5...

Production on Mission: Impossible 5 is set to begin later this year, with Tom Cruise reprising the role of Ethan Hunt, and Christopher McQuarrie directing this time. McQuarrie last directed Cruise in Jack Reacher.

The film is set to shoot mainly in the UK this time, with Simon Pegg also returning. And we now learn that there have been two big new additions to the cast.

Firstly, Alec Baldwin is joining the project, to play the head of the CIA (it'll apparently be a role not dissimilar to that of Laurence Fishburne's in Mission: Impossible III). Then Rebecca Ferguson, next to be seen in Brett Ratner's Hercules, is to take on the female lead role in the new film. Said role is described as "a deadly femme fatale", and it's the part originally linked with Jessica Chastain. Ferguson previously appeared in the TV take on The White Queen. Here she is from that production...

We'd post a picture of Alec Baldwin too, but we figure you all know what he looks like by now.

Mission: Impossible 5 is set to arrive in cinemas in December 2015.
