Tom Cruise brings more death-defying stunts in the seventh installment of the 'Mission: Impossible' series.
Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt is coming back with more death-defying stunts for the seventh installment of the 'Mission: Impossible' franchise.
Despite getting affected by the recent pandemic, the production of the spy action film ensues.
We've seen a couple of exciting sneak peeks and behind the scene footage, and here's everything we know so far.
Listed release date as of this writing: 19 November 2021
The seventh installment of the 'Mission: Impossible' franchise will release on 19 November 2021, and a direct sequel (Mission Impossible 8) will release on November 4, 2022.
Christopher McQuarrie will be directing both films.
Production for 'Mission: Impossible 7' was significantly affected by the pandemic, and filming continues as of this writing.
There won't be Mission: Impossible without Tom Cruise returning as Ethan Hunt, the IMF agent and leader of the operatives. He will be joined by Ving Rhames, who will be playing Ethan Hunt's good friend and co-IMF agent.
Other cast members include Vanessa Kirby as White Widow, Rebecca Ferguson as Ilsa Faust, Angela Bassett as Erika Sloane, and Simon Pegg as Benji Dunn, among others.
Hayley Atwell is also confirmed to join the seventh installment with a yet to be disclosed role along with Pom Klementieff Shea Whigham, and Esai Morales.
One of the reasons that made the Mission Impossible franchise so successful is Tom Cruise's daredevil stunts.
Not even the pandemic can stop Cruise from his commitment to bringing intense stunts to life for the seventh film.
In November 2020, we got treated to footage of the actor performing some deadly stunt, riding a motorcycle off the ramp.

Much of the plot details of the upcoming installment remains unknown as of the moment.
Nevertheless, we're happy to have clues about the different action stunts to look forward to for the seventh outing.
Aside from the breathtaking motorcycle jump you've seen above, Cruise will also reportedly go boat hopping in Venice, embark on a car chase scene in Rome, and fight on top of a moving train in Norway.
The crew filmed for 3 weeks in Venice, where he shot a few boat jumping scenes, before moving to Rome for 40 days.
However, the shoot was suspended later when Italy decided to go on a complete shutdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
In September 2020, Tom Cruise resumed filming and was seen filming car scenes through the city’s streets of Rome.
The actor was seen casually driving an old Fiat 500 with Hayley Atwell, then a doorless BMW M5 for a presumably high-octane car chase scene.
Of course, the doorless BMW is just for shooting, so we could get better angles of Cruise. We will still see a standard version of the car in the movie.
If car chases aren't your thing anymore, Cruise has more in store for you. The MI7 team was spotted filming a fight scene atop of a train as it raced through the snow-capped peaks of the Romsdal mountains in Norway.
The thrillingly dangerous exploits of Cruise's Ethan is what fans have always looked forward to in every Mission: Impossible movie, and MI7 will not disappoint.
'Mission: Impossible 7' is set to release in November this year, which means the trailer will drop a few months before that.
As the film resumes production, we are expecting to see more footage and updates on MI7 and possibly MI8.
For now, we will continue to scour for any updates on the action film.
