Ving Rhames Returns for MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 5

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol felt like a mini-reboot for the franchise as it came off more like a team movie rather than Ethan Hunt and Friends.  Oddly, it was a team movie missing Hunt’s long-running teammate, Luther Stickell, who was played by Ving Rhames, although he did have a cameo at the end.

Thankfully, it looks like Luther is back in the IMF as Mission: Impossible 5 director Christopher McQuarrie has tweeted “Welcome Back, Mr. Rhames” and then CC’ing the Twitter handles for co-stars Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, and Jeremy Renner.  While I’m a little bummed that Paula Patton isn’t returning, I’m glad Rhames is back in the mix.  As previously reported, Alec Baldwin and Rebecca Ferguson may also join the picture.  Mission: Impossible 5 opens December 25, 2015.
