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.”

    I am disappointed that his hair isn’t short like it was in the first and third films in the series.
    The cast is lacking more female characters and young male characters.
    It has been reported that Tom Cruise and Michael Nyqvist have a 5 page fight sequence at the end of the film. I hope that Tom Cruise uses a few KFM (Keysi Fighting Method) moves like he did in M:i:III.
    I wish that they would film this in Armenia as well. Hollywood never does films there. In addition, It would be good if the plot is based on current affairs and the IMF battles a real world threat such as Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, Iranian or North Korean extremists, Somali pirates, etc.

    It would be good if they include Henry Czerny, Thandie Newton, Anthony Hopkins, John Polson, Michelle Monaghan, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Maggie Q and Laurence Fishburne and hopefully conclude the series.
    I hope that the main villain’s name will be Vanning which was originally going to be the name of the main villain in M:i:III before they changed it to Owen Davian.
    I hope that Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts appear in M:i:IV as I’ve always wanted to see Tom Cruise do a movie with each of them.
