Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie are returning for two more Mission: Impossible films after producing the highest box office grosses for a Mission: Impossible film yet. McQuarrie will write and direct both projects, which will be shot concurrently. Here’s all you need to know about the new Mission: Impossible flicks.
While 2021 appeared to be a good year for moviegoers, it appears that certain major releases are still being postponed owing to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. Two planned projects of Tom Cruise, Mission Impossible 7, and Top Gun: Maverick have been pushed back to 2022. Continue reading to learn everything there is to know about the delays.
Mission: Impossible 7 – When ‘Mission Impossible 7’ Is Coming Out?
Mission Impossible 7, which was supposed to be released in 2021, has now been pushed back to 2022. According to The New York Times, the delay is due to an increase in COVID-19 instances induced by the Delta Variant. Because Mission Impossible 7 is expected to draw a large crowd in theatres, Paramount Pictures appears to have done the prudent thing and postponed the film’s release.
Tom Cruise has also lately made news for undertaking perilous stunts for his upcoming film, such as driving off a cliff. The widespread coverage of the filming of Mission: Impossible 7 starring Tom Cruise has only contributed to the excitement surrounding the impending film. Mission Impossible 7 is scheduled to be released on September 30, 2022.
‘Mission Impossible 7’ Cast
Naturally, Cruise reprises his role as Ethan Hunt, as does another franchise mainstay, Ving Rhames, as Luther Stickell. Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Angela Bassett, Vanessa Kirby, and Frederick Schmidt will also reprise their roles in the next flicks. Eugene Kittridge, played by Henry Czerny, is a key returning character who hasn’t been in the franchise since the first episode in 1996. Kittridge was the IMF director on the hunt for Ethan, believing he was the agency’s mole. Czerny’s comeback was verified by McQuarrie on Instagram.
Hayley Atwell, Esai Morales, Pom Klementieff, Charles Parnell, Mark Gatiss, Indra Varma, Rob Delaney, Cary Elwes, and Shea Whigham are among the new faces joining the franchise, which McQuarrie also announced on Instagram. Morales will play Ethan Hunt’s next adversary, taking over for Nicholas Hoult, who left due to scheduling difficulties.
Mission: Impossible 7 Who’s New To The Cast?
For Mission Impossible 7, several new cast members have been added. Although McQuarrie has given us a few hints, we don’t know much about their characters. Hayley Atwell plays the role of Agent Carter, a “destructive force of nature,” as per the filmmaker, while Pom Klementieff will play a “femme fatale.”
Esai Morales plays the role of Titans, just replacing Nicolas Hoult, who used to step out owing to scheduling conflicts as the film’s major villain, and Shea Whigham has a role in Joker, Boardwalk Empire. It’s unclear whether these actors will participate in both forthcoming Missions Impossible films and simple ones.
Who Is The Creative Team?
Both Mission: Impossible 7 and Mission: Impossible 8 will be written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie. He previously wrote and directed Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation as well as Mission: Impossible Fallout. The next two instalments of the franchise, like the fifth and sixth, are being shot back-to-back.
What Will Happen In Mission: Impossible 7?
Although narrative details are scant, one thing you can count on is extraordinary stunts from Tom Cruise, who is apparently attempting to exceed his HALO jump and helicopter maneuvers from Mission: Impossible: Fallout.
In one scene from M: I 7, Cruise rides a motorcycle off the brink of a cliff, a stunt he said Empire is the single most hazardous thing he’s ever done, and that’s saying a lot!
He stated that if the wind was too strong, it would blow me off the ramp. The helicopter [filming the stunt] posed a challenge because he didn’t want to be smashing down that ramp at high speed and getting hit by a stone. Or if he left in an unusual manner, he had no idea what would happen to the bike. He just had about six seconds after leaving the ramp to pull the chute, and he doesn’t want to get tangled in the bike. If he does, it will not end well.
Aside from the jaw-dropping stunts, it’s also possible that recurring villain Solomon Lane (Sean Harris) may return as an antagonist after surviving the previous film.
Mission: Impossible 7 Trailer
Hold your horses, the film is still in production. Expect a trailer closer to the release date, which might be late 2021.
There are, however, some tantalizing pictures from the set that appears to suggest another death-flouting stunt for Ethan Hunt of Cruise in the upcoming film. Will Mission Impossible 8 and 9 be released?
Because the initial idea was to film MI8 concurrently with the seventh feature, you can surely anticipate it to materialize, possibly in 2023. However, there is no indication on whether or not a ninth Mission Impossible film will be made. With so much work ahead of the filmmakers at the moment, it’s unlikely that much attention has been given to where the series continues from here. However, if the films continue to be popular and Cruise is willing to endanger his life for the sake of entertainment, there will almost certainly be more to come.
