mission impossible 7 filming

Looks like Paramount’s mission to finish the long-delayed shoot for Mission: Impossible 7 is proving…not possible. Or at least, extremely difficult, as production on the seventh installment of the Mission: Impossible series has come to a halt after at least one member of the production tested positive for COVID-19.

Mission: Impossible 7 is already one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2022 if only because of the daring stunts pulled off by franchise star Tom Cruise. But there’s one element that has longtime fans of the franchise very excited, and that’s the return of actor Henry Czerny in the role of Kittridge.

top gun maverick release date

Update 4/14/21: THR reports that part of the reason for the Top Gun: Maverick delay is because star Tom Cruise “wants to embark on a world tour in advance of the opening,” something that wouldn’t be possible now with the lockdowns in Europe and other international territories.

It’s kind of strange to think that we haven’t seen any official images from Mission: Impossible 7.

Mission Impossible 7 on Paramount+

Universal Pictures has already been shaking up the exclusive theatrical release window by sending their smaller and midrange theatrically released titles to VOD just 17 days after they hit the big screen. Then Warner Bros. Pictures came along and took things a step further by releasing all of their 2021 theatrical movies simultaneously on HBO Max for 31 days. Now Paramount Pictures is the latest to shorten the time their movies spend exclusively in theaters.

As part of a Viacom CBS investor day presentation today, Paramount Pictures announced that they will be sending blockbusters such as Mission: Impossible 7, A Quiet Place Part II, and Top Gun: Maverick to the recently rebranded streaming service just 45 days after they’ve hit theaters. Read More »
