“We just rolled up a snowball and tossed it into hell. Now let’s see what chance it has.” Do you remember this quote by Tom Cruise? Yes, you guessed it right. Mission: Impossible is coming up with its seventh sequel.
For the unversed, the first sequel of the film was released in 1996 and is coming up with its seventh sequel and a bonus for you is the film is also renewed for its eighth sequel.
The upcoming film is directed by Christopher McQuarrie.
Here you will know about the upcoming Mission: Impossible 7.
Mission: Impossible 7 Release Date
Assuming that no more delays will be made for the release date of the film, the film is all set to release on July 14, 2023, after changing the dates quite a few times. In January 2019, the film was renewed for its seventh and eighth sequel.
Mission: Impossible 7 Cast
Tom Cruise will come back as Ethan Hunt for his seventh mission.
The film will also cast Ving Rhames as Luther Stickell and Simon Pegg as Benji Dunn who will be IMF agents. Rebecca Ferguson will return as the enigmatic former MI6 agent Ilsa Faust, Vanessa Kirby as arms dealer Alanna Metropolis. Adding more, Frederick Schmidt returned as Alanna’s brother Zola, but we are hoping Angela Bassett back as CIA director Erika Sloane, she had to leave out due to scheduling clashes.
McQuarrie said about the return of his character to DigitalSpy, “Early in this process I had an inkling that there could be a place for Kittridge – the tone of the movie, the shape of the movie lent itself to that. I realized, ‘Kittridge has got to be in this scene.”
He further added, “I had written it not knowing who was in it, and then suddenly Kittridge came into it and the scene was transformed, it was really fun. I got to call Henry Czerny and say, ‘You’re in! Will you be in it?’ He was great about it.” Nicholas Hoult was the new movie’s main villain, but schedule clashes lead him to drop out and was replaced by Ozark star Esai Morales for the role.
The newcomer is Hayley Atwell who will play Grace, who is described by McQuarrie as a “destructive force of nature”. For this Atwell expressed, “The interesting thing we’re exploring is her resistance to a situation she finds herself in, How she starts off, where she becomes. The journey of what she comes into and what is asked of her and potentially where she ends up.”
Some roles aren’t confirmed yet but you will see Pom Klementieff, Shea Whigham, Rob Delaney, Indira Varma, Mark Gatiss, Charles Parnell, Cary Elwes, Lampros Kalfuntzos, and Greg Tarzan Davis.
In February 2020, McQuarrie announced that Henry Czerny would repeat his role as Eugene Kittridge from the first film, and Vanessa Kirby confirmed her return as Alanna / White Widow.
Mission: Impossible 7 Plot
No official plot is disclosed by the production yet, but the seventh sequel is a direct link to the eighth sequel. Explaining each character, McQuarrie told DigitalSpy, “Going into this, I said, ‘I want to take what we learned from Fallout and apply it to every character in the movie. I want everyone to have an emotional arc… I just want the movie to have more feeling across the board.”
He further added about the extra characters and the additions in the team, “We know that with the addition of extra characters and the addition of storylines for the team, the movie’s gonna be three hours long. In reality that means with us doing it, it will be 3 ½. Who are we kidding? Let’s just call it four, cut it in half and make it two movies. Now, the story can just kind of breathe.”
Mission: Impossible 7 Trailer
No trailer is released by the production yet. The reason might be that the filming is still in the process. However, Cruise is ready to surprise the viewers, yet again, something which he is famous for doing.
While there are not much details available for Mission: Impossible 7, one thing is for sure that it’s probably the best time to binge0-watch the other 6 movies and brace yourself for an upcoming one.
