The seventh film, which Skydance co-produced, was scheduled to debut on July 23, 2021, but got continually postponed as the public health situation changed.

COVID-19 has also created a delay in the film’s production. Mission: Impossible films are famously tough to shoot due to the various stunts and effects, with the filmmaking team striving to use their green screen as possible. They also fly from one foreign port of call to the next regularly.

The firm stated, “We look forward to offering moviegoers with an exceptional theatre experience.”

The cruise will reprise his role as Ethan Hunt. The IMF agent with nine lives and estimation for hanging off airplanes, skyscrapers, mountains, and pretty much any high-altitude edifice or projectile he can get his hands on in the two films in the series.

The two movies of the action franchise will get directed by Christopher McQuarrie, who previously directed Mission: Impossible – Fallout and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.

Rebecca Ferguson, Hayley Atwell, Ving Rhames, Henry Czerny, Simon Pegg, Vanessa Kirby, and Angela Bassett get cast members.

Apart from the future Mission: Impossible films, Cruise has another high-profile Paramount release this year, Top Gun: Maverick, which hits theatres on May 27.
