Vaneesa Kirby won BAFTA for her role as Princess Margaret in Netflix series The Crown in May. And before we get to see her in action in 2019, she has a movie already lined up for release as she will be appearing in this summer’s upcoming Mission: Impossible- Fallout alongside Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Alec Baldwin, and Rebecca Ferguson as a character listed on IMDb as “White Widow.”
What an action film without a bad guy? Idris Alba will be paying the villain against Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in the said spin off. The spinoff is being directed by David Leitch and produced by Chris Morgan who is also doing the script.
When you have two beasts in @TheRock & #JasonStatham it requires you to search high and low to find the villain that can push them to the limit. Excited to say we found that guy! Thrilled to welcome @idriselba to our #HobbsAndShaw team. Let’s go!! @SevenBucksProd @UniversalPics https://t.co/s8fHGdCsrR
