We previously reported that Christopher McQuarrie would be returning to Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in Watford, England to shoot both Mission: Impossible 7 and Mission: Impossible 8.
Leavesden is where Rogue Nation and Fallout were shot.
HN Entertainment has been able to independently confirm with someone working on the film that it’s working title will indeed be Libra.
The working title recently appeared on ProductionWeekly and is accurate.
Mission: Impossible – Fallout’s working title was Gemini, so Christopher McQuarrie must have a thing for astrology.
McQuarrie previously directed both Fallout and Rogue Nation.
The growing cast the includes Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson (Dune, Doctor Sleep), Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter, Captain America: The First Avenger), Pom Klementieff (Guardians of The Galaxy Vol.2, Avengers: Infinity War), Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road, X-Men: First Class, Those Who Wish Me Dead), and Shea Whigham (Agent Carter).
It was recently announced that Henry Czerny, who played Eugene Kittridge in the original film would be making a return.
Adding Kittridge wouldn’t the be the first time that McQuarrie has linked his movies to the original directed by Brain De Palma as Vanessa Kirby’s White Widow was the daughter of Max, who was the buyer of the knock-list played by Vanessa Redgrave.
Mission: Impossible 7 is set for release on July 31st, 2021 and Mission: Impossible 8 on August 5th, 2022.
