Mission Impossible 7: After earning the best box office grosses for a Mission Impossible film yet, Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie return for two more Mission Impossible films, the Mission Impossible 7 and 8. McQuarrie will write and direct both projects, which will be shot simultaneously.
Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his team have faced numerous impossible obstacles in the Mission Impossible franchise. Every mission is eventually completed, regardless of the franchise’s name.
Only completing production on Mission Impossible 7 appears to be impossible. The COVID-19 outbreak, like every other Hollywood blockbuster filming in 2020, made several projects incredibly impossible to complete.
This stumbling block led to the now-famous incident on set where Tom Cruise lost his cool and swore at a crew member for breaking COVID-19 regulations.
Here’s everything we’ve learned thus far about Mission Impossible 7.
What is Mission Impossible All About?
The American action spy film series Mission Impossible is based on a sequel to Bruce Geller’s television series. The series’ major producer and star is Tom Cruise, who plays Ethan Hunt, an agent of the Impossible Missions Force (IMF).
The films were filmed, written, and composed by various filmmakers and crews, and they feature musical themes from Lalo Schifrin’s original series.
The films, which begin in 1996 and end six years after the events of the last TV sequel series, chronicle the missions of the IMF’s principal field team, led by Hunt, to stop a hostile force while averting a global catastrophe.
Although certain characters from the television series, such as Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames) and Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg), appear in the movie, the series concentrates on Hunt as the lead character rather than the ensemble cast structure.
The Mission Impossible franchise has proven to be a gold mine for Paramount, with Mission Impossible: Fallout becoming the series’ highest-grossing film with $791.6 million worldwide in 2018. The “Mission Impossible” franchise has grossed over $3.5 billion for Paramount.
Mission Impossible 7 Plot
The forthcoming Mission Impossible 7 film’s actors and crew have been tight-lipped about anything that may be considered a spoiler. As a result, we don’t know much other than Ethan Hunt and his team will embark on another epic quest to save the world from chaos.
It’s worth mentioning that the franchise’s seventh chapter will not be the final one. The studio announced that Mission: Impossible 8 would be released shortly after Mission Impossible 7. The eighth film is still under development and will begin shooting after Mission Impossible 7 is finished.
Despite the lack of plot details, we can expect spectacular acrobatics from Tom Cruise. He appears to be trying to outdo his HALO jump and helicopter maneuvers from Mission: Impossible: Fallout.
In one of Mission Impossible 7 stunts, Cruise will ride a motorcycle off the edge of a cliff, which he thinks is the single most dangerous thing he’s ever done—and that’s saying a lot!
Aside from the jaw-dropping stunts, it’s likely that recurring villain Solomon Lane (Sean Harris), who survived the previous film, would return as an opponent.
It may be a while before the next “Mission: Impossible” film is out, but if the team behind Mission Impossible 7 is any indicator, the wait will be well worth it.
Mission Impossible 7 Cast
Ethan Hunt is played by Cruise again, and Ving Rhames plays Luther Stickell. Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Angela Bassett, and Frederick Schmidt will all return in the sequel.
Henry Czerny’s Eugene Kittridge is a major returning character who hasn’t been seen in the franchise since the first film in 1996. Kittridge, the IMF director, was on the lookout for Ethan, suspecting he was a snitch for the agency. McQuarrie announced Czerny’s return on Instagram.
Hayley Atwell, Esai Morales, Pom Klementieff, Charles Parnell, Indra Varma, Mark Gatiss, Rob Delaney, Cary Elwes, and Shea Whigham are among the franchise’s recruits, as announced by McQuarrie on Instagram. As a result, Morales will take over as Ethan Hunt’s next rival from Nicholas Hoult, who left due to scheduling conflicts.
Mission Impossible 7 Release Date
Mission Impossible 7 will be released on July 14, 2023, assuming no further delays.
The film’s release date has been pushed back numerous times, from July 23, 2021, to November 19, 2021, and then again to May 27, 2022, before finally being pushed again to September 30, 2022.
The deadline was moved back to July 2023 in January 2022, the latest current postponement.
At the very least, we know that filming for Mission Impossible 7 wrapped in September 2021, but it wasn’t an easy task.
Filming was set to begin in February 2020, but owing to scheduling conflicts, it will instead begin in September 2020. The filming was overshadowed by the controversy surrounding the suspected damage to a 111-year-old bridge and Tom Cruise’s on-set tantrum.
The film was shot worldwide, as is common for a Mission: Impossible film, including Italy, Poland, and the United Kingdom, which added to the shoot length due to COVID regulations in each nation.
Every time the seventh film has been delayed, Mission: Impossible 8 has been pushed back and will currently be released on June 28, 2024.
Both films were supposed to be shot simultaneously, but that was confirmed in February 2021. McQuarrie announced in November 2021 that he was currently rewriting the eighth feature.
Mission Impossible 7 Trailer
Unfortunately, the answer is no. Although production is finished, we won’t see a teaser this year because the release date has been pushed back to July 2023.
