Cruise first revealed on January 14, 2019, that the seventh and eighth Mission: Impossible films will be shot back-to-back, with McQuarrie writing and directing both films for release on July 23, 2021, and August 5, 2022, respectively. However, Deadline Hollywood reported in February 2021 that Paramount had chosen not to forward with the idea. Ferguson announced her return for the seventh edition in February 2019. McQuarrie announced Hayley Atwell’s addition to the ensemble on his Instagram account in September 2019. Pom Klementieff joined the cast of both the seventh and eighth films in September 2019. Simon Pegg announced his comeback for the film in December 2019, while Shea Whigham was recruited in both flicks. In January 2020, Nicholas Hoult was cast in a part, along with Henry Czerny, who is returning his role as Eugene Kittridge for the first time since the 1996 picture. Vanessa Kirby has also confirmed that she will appear in both flicks. Due to schedule issues, it was announced in May 2020 that Esai Morales would replace Hoult as the villain in both films.
Angela Bassett said that she will reprise her role as Erika Sloane in December 2020, however, she was eventually cut from the picture owing to COVID-19 travel limitations. Rob Delaney, Charles Parnell, Indira Varma, Mark Gatiss, and Cary Elwes joined the cast in March 2021, according to McQuarrie’s Instagram. Greg Tarzan Davis was also announced to have joined the cast on the same day.
Filming and COVID-19 shutdown
Filming was supposed to begin on February 20, 2020, in Venice, for three weeks before relocating to Rome in mid-March for 40 days, however, production in Italy was suspended owing to the COVID-19 epidemic. Just before the pause, stunt rehearsals resumed three weeks later in Surrey, England. After another pause, crews arriving in the UK were given permission to resume filming on July 6, 2020, without having to go through the required 14-day quarantine. The set is located in Leavesden, Hertfordshire, at Warner Bros Studios.
Similar authorization was obtained for filming in Mre og Romsdal, Norway, the following month. A huge fire broke out on a motorbike stunt setup in Oxfordshire the same month. The sequence took six weeks to arrange and was “among the most costly scenes ever filmed in the United Kingdom.” There were no injuries as a result of the incident.
On September 6, 2020, McQuarrie began posting photos from the set to his Instagram account, indicating that filming had begun. At October 2020, Cruise was spotted filming an action sequence with Esai Morales on a train throughout Norway, where the last chapter was filmed in Preikestolen, encompassing the municipalities of Stranda and Rauma. Production in Italy was suspended on October 26, 2020, when 12 employees on set tested positive for COVID-19. A week later, filming resumed.
An audio clip of Cruise yelling at two production staff members for not following the COVID-19 regulations on-site was published online in December 2020, during filming in London. As a result, Cruise’s character Les Grossman from the 2008 film Tropic Thunder was compared to him. The public’s reaction, as well as that of many celebrities, was positive, implying that his tone and severity were justified given the difficult conditions and the pressure of ensuring that production would not cease again.
Variety announced on December 28, 2020, that the main filming for the film will wrap at Longcross Film Studios in the United Kingdom, with production relocating from Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden. Productions were permitted to continue in Longcross, Surrey, in Southeast England, under stringent COVID-19 guidelines. Filming in the Middle East wrapped in February 2021, and the crew returned to London for “final touches.” Filming began on April 20, 2021, at the tiny village of Levisham, North Yorkshire, for the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Filming was planned to take place at Stoney Middleton, Peak District National Park, between April and June 2021, on a built set in a former quarry with a railway line and part of a bridge over the cliff edge. Filming was halted for two weeks in June 2021 when a member of the team tested positive.
Lorne Balfe, who scored the sixth Mission: Impossible film, was announced to return to write a soundtrack for the seventh and eighth Mission: Impossible films in early May 2020.
The release date for Mission: Impossible 7 is set for May 27, 2022. It was supposed to be released on July 23, 2021, but owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was pushed back to November 19 and subsequently to May 27, 2022. Another Cruise picture, Top Gun: Maverick, has been assigned a November 19 release date. 45 days after its theatrical release, the picture will be available to stream on Paramount+.
After being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a sequel is in the works and will be published on July 7, 2023.

Will Jeremy Renner be in Mission Impossible 7?
The presence of Jeremy Renner in Mission: Impossible 7 has yet to be confirmed. Renner debuted in the franchise as William Brandt in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, and was tipped to be the series’ future protagonist. Given Cruise’s ongoing popularity, that change has yet to occur.
Where are they filming Mission Impossible 7?
The filming of Mission: Impossible 7 has been hampered by the Covid epidemic, with locations in Italy, the United Kingdom, and Norway being used.
Are Mission Impossible movies connected?
It has the fewest ties to the others (the first and third films contain continuity callbacks in Ghost Protocol, whereas the second doesn’t). So, you don’t need to view number two to comprehend numbers three and four.
