The Tom Cruise action movies Mission: Impossible 7 and 8 were expected to film back-to-back but film studio Paramount has changed plans and will now shoot the sequel later.
Mission: Impossible 7 is wrapping up its shoot now, but Cruise has obligations to do press for Top Gun: Maverick, so he will be unavailable to film Mission: Impossible 8 until later, according to Deadline’s sources. The gap shouldn’t be too significant, however, the report said.
Director Christopher McQuarrie recently said on Instagram that Mission: Impossible 7 has finished filming in Abu Dhabi, the latest location shoot for the action film. The production team is now headed back to London to put the “finishing touches” on the film.
