Christopher McQuarrie – who helmed the last two films, Rogue Nation and Fallout – is also on board to write and direct the two new installments.

“Missions: Accepted#MissionImpossible,” Christopher tweeted.

The movies are expected to hit theaters in the summers of 2021 and 2022, which will avoid conflict with Tom‘s Top Gun: Maverick.

They’ll be shot back to back in order to maximize production schedules and ensure that the studio can release them in consecutive years, Variety reports.

Production would likely start this year!
