British funny man Simon Pegg has confirmed that he will return again to his role of tech-nut Benji Dunn in the latest installment of the action-packed movie series.
Probed by MTV on his inclusion, he replied “Yes, absolutely. I’m looking forward to that. I’ve already started eating one carrot a day in order to be in shape.” He will once again join Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt, while Ghost Protocol’s Jeremy Renner and Paula Patton have yet to be confirmed. Christopher McQuarrie, director of Tom’s Jack Reacher, as well as writer on his Valkryie and forthcoming Edge Of Tomorrow, and the classic crime thriller The Usual Suspects, has signed on to direct M:i:5, which is set for a Christmas 2015 release.
