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. You may remember him: he was the director of the Impossible Mission Force in the original 1996 film who mistakenly thought Ethan Hunt was the mole that plagued the agency.

So what’s Kittridge been up to throughout these past 25 years? That’s something Henry Czerny had to figure out himself when he was asked to return to the franchise.  Read More »

Some missions really are impossible, because it looks like plans to shoot the next two Mission: Impossible installments back-to-back have been scrapped. Production on Mission: Impossible 7 is almost at an end, and rather than moving right on to start filming Mission: Impossible 8, things are going to pause for a bit.

There’s a story making the rounds that sounds too good to be true. Here’s the gist of it: Tom Cruise apparently brought a pair of terrifying robots to the set of Mission: Impossible 7 to guard against COVID-19.

mission impossible 7 stunt

Tom Cruise has hung out of ascending airplanes, jumped out of helicopters, and scaled the world’s tallest building in the Mission: Impossible series, AKA the lone franchise that will let him spit in death’s face and laugh. So what could he possibly do next? Well, Mission: Impossible 7 already teased a motorcycle stunt for the gods, but director Christopher McQuarrie and Cruise are going back to an old cinematic tradition for the next death-defying Mission: Impossible 7 stunt: a fight on top of a speeding train. And yes, both star and director are really on top of that train.

While Doug Liman, who worked with Cruise on Edge of Tomorrow and American Made, is the one who will be sitting in the director’s chair, it turns out that McQuarrie will be involved after all.
