Many studio tentpole films are playing musical chairs with release dates and Paramount Pictures has now altered some of their upcoming slate.
The studio has given Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible 7 the new release date of November 19th, 2021 bumping it from the summer along with Mission: Impossible 8 coming out on November 4th, 2022.
Mission: Impossible 7 (working title Libra) was the first major feature film production to shut down as their shoot in Venice, Italy closed down back in February over safety concerns. The project ultimately closed it’s British leg as well when the United Kingdom halted filming.
When filming will resume remains to be seen but the new date would suggest they’re optimistic cameras could begin rolling in late summer or fall.
Christopher McQuarrie was expected to direct the two untitled sequels back-to-back with filming returning to Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in Watford, England.
The film’s cast the includes Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson (Dune, Doctor Sleep), Vanessa Kirby (Hobbs & Shaw), 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), Henry Czerny (Clear & Present Danger), and Shea Whigham (Agent Carter).
They’ve also now moved Chris Pratt’s sci-fi action flick The Tomorrow War aka Ghost Daft to Mission: Impossible 7’s old spot on July 23rd, 2021.
The Tomorrow War was lucky enough to wrap filming.
