'Mission: Impossible 8' Will No Longer Be Filmed Back-to-Back With 7th Movie - Here's Why

There has been a change of plans for the Mission: Impossible franchise, though it might not have any effect on the release calendar.

Tom Cruise is almost done filming the upcoming Mission: Impossible 7 and the original plan was to immediately begin production on Mission: Impossible 8. Now, filming will have to wait because of delays caused by the pandemic.

Tom‘s movie Top Gun: Maverick was supposed to be released last summer, but now it is scheduled to hit theaters on July 2, 2021. Assuming that date doesn’t move, Tom will likely be on a press tour for several weeks and won’t be able to film M:I8. It’s not clear yet when production will begin for that movie.

Deadline reports that there have been no “pandemic-related travel issues” for filming, as has been reported in some tabloids. The production team just wrapped a shoot in the Middle East and they’re traveling back to London for the final shots.

Mission: Impossible 7 is scheduled to be released in theaters on November 19, 2021 and the eighth film is scheduled for release on November 4, 2022.

Christopher McQuarrie Says WB Turned Down His 'Superman' Movie With Henry Cavill (Report)

Christopher McQuarrie is opening up about his Superman and Green Lantern films that he says Warner Bros. rejected.

The 51-year-old screenwriter recently took to Twitter to explain the situation to fans.

“Too complicated to explain,” Christopher wrote (via CBR). “It tied into the Superman movie that [Henry] Cavill and I were proposing. No takers. The studios have never cared for my original ideas. They prefer that I fix their broken ones.”

Besides the Superman pitch, Christoper said he also penned a Green Lantern proposal.

Christopher McQuarrie added that the discussions took place ahead of the premiere of Mission: Impossible – Fallout, and that they were for a sequel to Man of Steel, though Warner Bros. chose not to go forward with his idea.

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 ā€” 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.”

“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.

Production would likely start this year!
