Mission Impossible 7 Character Return:
The Mission Impossible movie series is all about guns, glory, and world domination. It tells the story of a super spy called Ethan Hunt and his pals at the IMF (Impossible Mission Force) who are tasked with stopping megalomaniacs from destroying the world. Like any espionage thriller, the movie is filled with amazing action choreography, chase sequences, and amazing plot twists and turns.
Over the years, the Mission Impossible franchise has grown tremendously and like fine wine, has become better and better with each consecutive installment. The last movie – Mission Impossible: Fallout was a roaring success. The next movie – the untitled Mission Impossible 7, is also going to be a home run because it will bring back an iconic character from the previous movies. Presenting – Mission Impossible 7 to see Major character’s return that will change the franchise forever!!
The Mission Impossible series of movies have had an old habit of bringing back legacy characters for their newer movies. This time, Christopher McQuarrie, the Director of Mission Impossible 7, claims that the old legacy character from some of the first Mission Impossible movies that they intend to bring back is none other than Henry Czerny who played Eugene Kittridge in the franchise. McQuarrie released a new teaser picture for the new Mission Impossible 7 movie and it shows several references to the character of Eugene Kittridge.
Here is the official tweet from Christopher McQuarrie:
Agent Kittridge was always on the hunt for Ethan Hunt and this time it looks like he will finally catch up to him. Christopher McQuarrie stated that “There is no escaping the past” will be the new mantra of the new Mission Impossible movie. Looks like the new MI movie will be all about Ethan Hunt being ghosted by demons from a past he would like to forget and keep hidden.
Agent Eugene Kittridge was one of the thorns on Ethan Hunt’s sides during the first Mission Impossible movie. Christopher McQuarrie had already been involved in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation and Mission Impossible: Fallout, both of which have gone on to become some of the highest grossing movies in the franchise. McQuarrie intends to turn the next two movies into a continuation of the ballad of Ethan Hunt. Tom Cruise is reportedly leaving after the 8th Mission Impossible movie and will hand over the torch to a new actor who will take up the role.
With Kittridge’s return, McQuarrie intends to give Ethan Hunt some form of closure. The fans also need to realize the past of their favourite super spy. For that Kittridge serves to be the catalyst that will incite a reaction to engulf Ethan’s life in flames.
Mission Impossible, the first Mission Impossible movie saw the chief director of the Impossible Mission Force – Jim Phelps, who was also a mentor figure to Ethan Hunt fake his death. He would frame Ethan for the death of the IMF team and try to get away with it. In the end, Jim met with a gruesome death when he was literally spliced by a helicopter’s blades. There were a lot of other female antagonists in the movie.
There was Jim’s Wife Claire, played by Emmanuelle Beart, who was a co-conspirator that died of a gunshot wound. There is also Max, the Black Market Arms Dealer that Ethan captured during his pursuit of Jim Phelps. They could also see a return to the seventh Mission Impossible movie if need be. If McQuarrie is hell-bent on bringing back blasts from the past, they would act as possible vessels to do so.
The last Mission Impossible movie to be released was Mission Impossible: Fallout. The release date for the movie was 12th of July, 2018. The official film synopsis for the movie reads:
Ethan Hunt and the IMF team join forces with CIA assassin August Walker to prevent a disaster of epic proportions. Arms dealer John Lark and a group of terrorists known as the Apostles plan to use three plutonium cores for a simultaneous nuclear attack on the Vatican, Jerusalem and Mecca, Saudi Arabia. When the weapons go missing, Ethan and his crew find themselves in a desperate race against time to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands.
