Last month it was announced that director Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Mission: Impossible – Fallout) is set to reunite with Tom Cruise for two further instalments in the blockbuster spy series, and now studio Paramount Pictures has set official release dates for the movies.
As per Variety, Mission: Impossible 7 is set to open on July 23rd 2021, with Mission: Impossible 8 following on August 5th 2022. The two films will be shot back-to-back once Cruise has finished up work on another sequel, Top Gun: Maverick.
“We couldn’t be more excited to build on the massive success of ‘Mission: Impossible — Fallout’ by reteaming with Chris and Tom on these next two films, following two successful collaborations,” said Jim Gianopulos, Chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures. “We’ve also enjoyed a great partnership with Skydance and David Ellison on these three most recent films and look forward to continued success together on this great franchise.”
