Mission: Impossible, a franchise that is now almost two decades old, no doubt owes part of its sustained success to the fact that the sequels are released just far enough apart to prevent burnout. By the time Mission: Impossible 5 arrives in theaters next year, four years will have passed since Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol stormed into theaters and became the highest-grossing Mission: Impossible movie to date.

Little is known about the plot of Mission: Impossible 5 at this point, but we do have a good idea of which actors will appear in the movie. Tom Cruise will, of course, be reprising his role as Ethan Hunt, while Simon Pegg is once again playing fellow field agent Benji Dunn and Rebecca Ferguson (The White Queen) will be joining the franchise for the first time as Mission: Impossible 5's female lead. Jeremy Renner and Ving Rhames will also be returning as William Brandt and Luther Stickell, respectively.

One thing we do know for sure about Mission: Impossible 5's story is that it's set to continue the series' habit of globe-trotting. Mission: Impossible 5 has now begun production in Vienna, Austria, and the first set photos from filming in public locations - including a subway station and the roof of an opera house - have emerged over at Coming Soon. Click the link below for a first look at Cruise, Ferguson, Pegg and more preparing to embark on the next big mission.
