Cinema Blend   has spoken with Simon Pegg this afternoon on behalf of his self-reflection journey dramedy Hector and the Search for Happiness. Before signing off, they asked him if he knew when he would begin filming the fifth installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise, where he’ll reprise his role as Benji Dunn. Pegg confirmed:

“We’re all ready to go on August 24, which is what I’m being told. Which is why I’m here doing a little press right now, and I’m available – because I might become unavailable very soon. As far as I know, we’re all set to go. We’ve got location work first, and then the bulk of the filming will be in Leavesden [Studios], north of London. It’s a nice one for me, to be near home.”

Quick timeout. There were rumors a while back that Christopher McQuarrie’s Mission: Impossible 5 would be the first movie to actually film inside the Houses of Parliament, though Simon Pegg couldn’t exactly confirm. He said:

I can’t confirm that because I haven’t been told. But we are shooting in London, so it would make sense, if they were looking to film in places like that, that it would be the case. I don’t know for definite, but I do know that we are shooting on location in London, so that should be the case. Which would be great.”
