Michelle Monaghan | Michelle Monaghan in the cast of The Family Plan


Michelle Monaghan will play with Mark Wahlberg in ‘The Family Plan’.

The 46-year-old star has joined the cast of the action-comedy film which will star Wahlberg as a suburban dad who takes his family on the run when his past catches up with him.

Michelle’s role has yet to be confirmed but is expected to play Mark’s character’s wife.

The film was written by David Coggeshall and Wahlberg is set to produce with David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger.

Simon CellanJones – who worked with Mark on the upcoming ‘Arthur the King’ film – is to direct the film.

Michelle has already starred in three “Mission: Impossible” films as Julia Meade – the love interest of Tom CruiseEthan Hunt – and described being in the franchise as an “amazing experience” as she recalled working on the 2006 film “Mission: Impossible III”.

She recalls, “It was such an amazing experience from start to finish. Definitely this movie. One of my first days was the opening scene with Philip Seymour Hoffman and Tom and it was as intense as it sounded. Philip was such a great actor and such a talent that we were lucky to be honored.

“It’s a franchise and a group of people I’m so proud to be associated with, including Tom and director JJ Abrams who launched my career. To continue to be part of this franchise, and for it to still be strong, that’s very cool.”

Michelle revealed that she’s a big fan of the “Mission: Impossible” franchise and even watches movies she wasn’t involved in.

She said: “I’m as much a fan as I’m proud to work there. Tom is an amazing actor and a great friend. I’m not surprised he’s still going, he just can. He’s not like the rest of us. As long as he continues, we will continue to watch.
