Tom Cruise, director Christopher McQuarrie and the main crew of "Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One" will visit Korea later this month.

Cruise, who visited Korea last year to promote "Top Gun: Maverick," will be accompanied by the film's director McQuarrie and four lead actors, Simon Pegg, Hayley Atwell, Vanessa Kirby and Pom Klementieff, on June 29.

They will speak at a press conference and attend a red carpet event to celebrate the film's Korean release on July 12, the film's Korean distributor Lotte Entertainment announced Thursday.

It will be Cruise's 11th time visiting Korea after the American actor first visited Korea in 1994. McQuarrie, Klementieff and Pegg have all visited Korea multiple times and it is Kirby and Atwell's first time visiting Korea for movie promotions.

Written and directed by McQuarrie, the film is the seventh in the popular "Mission: Impossible" movie franchise starring the American actor and producer Cruise and the first part in the "Dead Reckoning" set of films.
