It looks like it’s a wrap Mission: Impossible 7 after what has been a tumultuous shoot. On Twitter, the Light the Fuse podcast shared an image taken from gaffer Martin Smith’s Instagram account. Reveal a large tablet with the M: I VII along with the message “Mission complete!” You can take a look at the closing photo below.
Christopher McQuarrie writes and directs Mission: Impossible 7, being the third film in the series directed by the filmmaker. He also produces alongside star Tom Cruise, JJ Abrams, David Ellison, and Jake Myers. Cruise, of course, is back in the title role as Ethan Hunt with the rest of the cast, including Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Esai Morales, Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, and Cary Elwes. It was recently reported that filming had ended for Atwell.
It must be a good feeling for everyone involved to finish filming the sequel. It has taken a long time to get to this point from the start of production, as the 2020 pandemic would result in frequent delays in filming and the release date. The production was also plagued with other problems, including a fire on set during a motorcycle stunt that went awry. That scene had taken six weeks to prepare and cost the production a lot of money. McQuarrie was also criticized for the plan to destroy a railway bridge in Poland for filming, which resulted in another change of plans.
Meanwhile, Tom Cruise had been going to great lengths to make the movie, despite all the ongoing challenges. The pandemic had been particularly harsh on set, even with Cruise spending his own money on cruise ships to keep the cast and crew isolated and hopefully safe from the coronavirus. Infamously, Cruise was caught on audio yelling at two crew members whom he saw were ignoring mandatory set security protocols. Many had praised Cruise for taking the virus so seriously when others apparently weren’t.
“I said what I said,” Cruise told Empire Magazine of the incident. “There was a lot at stake at the time. But it wasn’t my entire team. I had the team leave the set, and it was just select people. And here we are, continuing to film. All those emotions were running through my mind. And that all the team to know that we had started shooting a movie was a great relief … It was very emotional. “
In the original spiel, Cruise said, in part: “If I see you do it again, you’ll be gone. And if someone on this team does it, that’s it, and you too, and you too. And you, don’t do it again. . They’re in Hollywood making movies right now because of us. We’re creating thousands of jobs, motherfuckers. That’s it. No apologies. You can tell people who are losing their fucking homes because our industry is closed. We’re not going. to close this damn movie. Is that understood? If I see it again, you’ll be gone. “
At least all this stress of shooting can finally be put behind you at this point. Fans can stay tuned Mission: Impossible 7 It will be released in theaters on September 30, 2022. In the meantime, fans can also anticipate the next film in the series, as Mission: Impossible 8 It has already been given a release date of July 7, 2023. Initially, the films were scheduled to shoot one after another, but the pandemic caused the eighth film to be delayed as well.
