Lea Seydoux To Play Female Villain In MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 4
French actress Lea Seydoux has been tapped to play a female villain in the upcoming “Mission: Impossible 4.” The role pits Seydoux against Tom Cruise’s super agent character in the fourth installment of the “M: I” franchise from Paramount.
Seydoux will join actor Michael Nyqvist as a lead villain in the film taking on Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his team of top agents. Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg return to the cast alongside Cruise, with Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton and Vladimir Mashkov providing fresh faces to the franchise. Production on the film is already underway in Europe.
Seydoux previously appeared in “Robin Hood” and the opening sequence of “Inglourious Basterds.” She recently completed her role in Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris.”
