Mission Impossible 7 and 8

After Mission: Impossible – Fallout, writer-director Christopher McQuarrie gave the impression that he was going to take a break from the franchise for a while. That didn’t last, though, because it was soon announced McQuarrie reunite with Tom Cruise yet again, and helm both Mission: Impossible 7 and Mission: Impossible 8 back-to-back. This will no doubt be a daunting feat, and McQuarrie isn’t afraid to admit that.

In a new interview, the filmmaker talks about how he’s feeling the pressure to make sure the franchise earns these back-to-back sequels, and his believe that the new films need to “swallow the last three movies whole.”

Tom Cruise Almost Left Mission Impossible

We all assumed it was supposed to happen, and now we know for sure. Tom Cruise really was supposed to step aside as the Mission: Impossible lead after Ghost Protocol to make way for Jeremy Renner. That all changed, however, when Christopher McQuarrie was brought in to handle rewrites. Now, of course, it’s almost impossible to think of Mission: Impossible without Cruise. But such a reality came very close to happening.

Rebecca Ferguson Back for Mission Impossible 7

When it comes to Mission: Impossible, director Christopher McQuarrie and star Tom Cruise are on a roll. The pair have teamed up to deliver two thoroughly entertaining installments of the action spy franchise. In fact, Mission: Impossible – Fallout is arguably the best of them all. Now, the duo are teaming up for two more sequels that will be shot back-to-back and released in consecutive summers in 2021 and 2022. And we already have word on another team member who will be joining them.

Rebecca Ferguson made her debut as the sultry and dangerous MI6 spy Ilsa Faust in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.

paramount theme park

Universal Studios, Disneyland, Walt Disney World and now…Paramount Pictures Park? It’s happening – in South Korea, at least. Paramount has just signed a deal to create a “studio-branded theme park” in a resort being developed in South Korea. Specifics of just what the Paramount theme park will contain are sketchy at best, but the studio has a wide range of entertainment to pick from – Mission: Impossible, Transformers, G.I. Joe, and many more. Personally, I’m hoping for Zodiac ride, where you obsessively comb over mountains of evidence to try to find the Zodiac Killer. That might be a long-shot, though.

At least that’s the prediction laid out on the table by Honest Trailers.
