According to Variety's sources Cavill is set to play some kind of right hand man to Cruise's unit, which is expected to be comprised of the returning stars from previous films - like Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, and Jeremy Renner, although it is has not been made clear in what capacity they will return in.

The sixth instalment of the Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions franchise will be produced by Cruise and David Ellison. It is expected to begin production in April.
