Lea Seydoux has a ‘Mission’ which she is choosing to accept
HollywoodNews.com: She might have gotten passed over for the lead in the U.S. reboot of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” but French actress Lea Seydoux has reaped a wonderful runner-up prize: She’ll be starring as the lead villain in Paramount’s “Mission: Impossible 4.”
Seydoux recently appeared in Ridley Scott’s “Robin Hood” and also played in “Inglourious Basterds” last year.
“Mission” is currently lensing in Europe. Seydoux stars opposite Michael Nyqvist; the film’s other baddie, who was known for his work as journalist Mikael Blomkvist in the Swedish version of the “Dragon Tattoo” series.
Tom Cruise reprises his role as special agent Ethan Hunt in “Mission.” Each installment has featured a different director and this time around Brad Bird is taking a stab.
Seydoux, 25, recently wrapped production on Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris.”
