Jonathan Rhys-Meyers Would Never Say Never to Another 'Mission: Impossible' Movie

Jonathan Rhys-Meyers walks the red carpet at the screening of his movie London Town during the 2016 BFI London Film Festival on Tuesday (October 11) at Haymarket Cinema in London, England.

The 39-year-old actor was joined by co-stars Dougray Scott (with wife Claire Forlani), Natascha McElhone, and Daniel Huttlestone.

While on the carpet, Jonathan opened up about possible returning to the Mission: Impossible franchise.

“I like Tom. He’s a really, really nice man and a really hard worker. Actually, I’ve been in the industry 24 years and I doubt I’ve met anyone who works as hard as Tom Cruise. Nobody has approached me, but I’d never say never,” Jonathan said. “I had a great experience with Tom on Mission: Impossible III and so I recommend any actor do a Mission: Impossible. They’re a lot of fun.”

The movie is out now in the U.S. via IFC Films.
