Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his team have faced several impossible challenges in the “Mission: Impossible” film franchise. Regardless of the franchise’s name, every task is fulfilled in the end. The only job that now appears to be truly impossible is completing production on “Mission: Impossible 7.” The COVID-19 epidemic, like every other Hollywood blockbuster shooting in 2020, made wrapping up numerous films extremely tough. This stumbling block resulted in the now-famous anecdote of Tom Cruise losing his cool on set and swearing at a crew member for breaking COVID-19 rules.

In the year 2021, things aren’t any better. The production of “Mission: Impossible 7” had to be halted as recently as early June owing to a coronavirus outbreak among the cast and crew. Deadly infections and looming deadlines may sound like things that belong in a movie, but they’ve been all too real over the past year. Hopefully, everything will go easily from here on out, and we’ll be able to watch the next heart-racing, high-flying adventure. At this point, you should know all there is to know about “Mission: Impossible 7.”

When is Mission: Impossible 7 set to hit theatres?

When it comes to release dates for “Mission: Impossible 7,” there has been a lot of wiggle room. The film was supposed to be released on July 23, 2021, but delays in development made that impossible (via Variety). The action film was postponed by the studio to November 19, 2021, and then again. Currently, the release date for “Mission: Impossible 7” is May 27, 2022. (via Deadline).

Memorial Day weekend is a hotbed for new movies, and cinemas should be packed by then. If you’re still hesitant about going to a crowded area at that time, be assured that Paramount is on your side. For the time being, the studio has stated that all of its new films will be released 45 days following their theatrical release on Paramount+ (via Variety). It follows in the footsteps of other studios that have used their streaming services to provide more alternatives for customers to watch fresh content while the epidemic continues to be a concern.

Who will be on Mission: Impossible 7’s cast?

For this upcoming episode, a number of characters from the “Mission: Impossible” franchise will return. Tom Cruise hasn’t disappeared, and he’ll be back as Ethan Hunt to save the world once more. Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames), Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg), White Widow (Vanessa Kirby), and Erika Sloane (Rebecca Ferguson) are among the people that will accompany Ethan Hunt on his adventure (Angela Bassett).

There will also be a slew of fresh faces at the event. While nothing is known about their characters, we do know that Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, Cary Elwes, Shea Whigham, and Rob Delaney will all be part of the “Mission: Impossible 7” ensemble. Given the allegations that she and Cruise had started dating during the film’s shooting, Atwell’s participation has sparked considerable interest. The two have yet to confirm anything, but as the film’s release date approaches, they may provide more details about their connection.

What is Mission: Impossible 7’s storyline?

The cast and crew of the next “M: I” film have been tight-lipped about anything that may be considered a spoiler. As a result, we don’t know much save that Ethan Hunt and his squad will go on another epic mission to save the world from chaos in the film. It’s worth noting that this isn’t the series’ last chapter. The company also confirmed that “Mission: Impossible 8” will be released soon after “Mission: Impossible 7.” (via The Hollywood Reporter). The eighth film is still in the works and is expected to begin production after “M: I 7” is completed.

THR spoke with director Christopher McQuarrie on where he plans to take the characters in the two sequels “‘I really want to make this more of an emotional journey for [Cruise’s character Ethan Hunt,’ I told Tom [Cruise] when we started filming “Fallout,”‘ I said. ‘I want to apply everything we learned from ‘Fallout’ to every character in the film,’ I stated before we started. Everyone should have a story with an emotional progression, in my opinion. All I want is for the film to be more emotional.”
