'Mission: Impossible' Movies Get Official Release Dates

Paramount Pictures has announced the release dates for the next two installments of Tom Cruise‘s Mission: Impossible!

The studio revealed that the seventh and eighth films in the series will be released on July 23, 2021 and August 5, 2022.

Earlier in the month, it was announced that director Christopher McQuarrie – who helmed the last two films, Rogue Nation and Fallout – is on board to write and direct the two new installments.

“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,” Paramount Picture CEO Jim Gianopulos said in a statement.

He added, “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.”

Tom Cruise & 'Mission Impossible: Fallout' Director Get Honored at Harold Lloyd Awards 2019!

Tom Cruise is all smiles as he poses alongside Christopher McQuarrie on the red carpet at the 2019 Lumiere Awards held at Warner Bros. Studios on Wednesday (January 30) in Burbank, Calif.

The 56-year-old actor was in attendance to help honor the 50-year-old Mission Impossible: Fallout director for achievement in filmmaking with the Harold Lloyd Award.

Tom and Christopher also accepted the trophy for Best Scene or Sequence, for Mission: Impossible — Fallout‘s final helicopter chase sequence.

“[Christopher] applies cutting edge technology beautifully,” Tom said during his speech (via THR). “Like Harold Lloyd, respects the audience … and understands that story is everything.”

“Our single greatest piece of technology is Tom Cruise,” Christopher continued. “I have an unfair advantage. Whatever we come up with, Tom’s response is ‘Yeah, I’ll do that. How are you going to shoot it?’ That sets in motion the development of new technology.”

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!

Katy Perry Reveals She Was Once Suspended From School for 'Making Sexual Motions' at a Tree

Katy Perry was suspended from sixth grade years ago when she pretended a tree was Tom Cruise and “began making sexual motions (pelvic thrusts)” towards the tree.

The 34-year-old entertainer took a trip down memory lane and posted the suspension notice on her Instagram Story for all her followers to read.

“At the 2:00pm recess, Katy and four other students were in an ‘off-limits’ area (behind the backboards) practicing a skit. Katy pretended that a tree was Tom Cruise and began making sexual motions (‘pelvic thrusts’) to the tree,” the suspension notice read. “When Katy met with [her teachers] she was asked to describe or demonstrate what she had been seen doing in the playground in front of some other students. Katy chose to describe it. Her words were ‘it was inappropriate’ and ‘like making out.’”

The suspension notice is dated November 14, 1996. Read it in full below!
