Simon Pegg accepts a new Mission

November 20th, 2013 by bash Comments

Simon Pegg has told MTV that he’ll be reprising his role as Benji Dunn opposite Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible 5.

When asked if he’d be back for the Christopher McQuarrie directed actioner, he replied: “Yes, absolutely.”

“I’m looking forward to that,” he said. “I’ve already started eating one carrot a day in order to be in shape.”

The Dunn character made his debut in J.J. Abrams’ Mission: Impossible III and returned for Brad Bird’s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.

Mission: Impossible 5 features a screenplay by Iron Man 3 scribe Drew Pearce .

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
