She will next be seen in Brett Ratner's Hercules, to be released on July 25.
Actor Alec Baldwin is amidst talks to join the fifth installment of the action franchise as the head of the CIA.
The plot is under wraps but he will be playing a high-ranking CIA officer who oversees Tom's division, very much like Laurence Fishburne's role in Mission: Impossible 3, reported Deadline.
Chris McQuarrie will direct the film scripted by Drew Pearce. Paramount has slated it for December 25, 2015 release.
Tom will reprise his role as Ethan Hunt. Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg will also return to the franchise.
