The shooting of the upcoming Tom Cruise’s film Mission: Impossible 7 has been resumed in the United Kingdom. The character of Ethan Hunt is returning for the seventh time after facing lots of challenges.
Christopher McQuarrie’s upcoming movie Mission: Impossible 7 is a spy film and Rogue Nation and Fallout sequel. Alongside Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Ving Rhames, Henry Czerny, Angela Bassett, and Frederick Schmidt reprise their original role, whereas Esai Morales, Hayley Atwell, Hayley Atwell will join the franchise. The installment is scheduled to release on 19 November 2021, and the sequel of the movie will be out on 4 November 2022.
On 14 January 2019, the team announced that they are working on the seventh and eighth installment of the franchise, and McQuarrie will be directing both the movies. However, the project has faced many many challenges during the making. The film was working under the title of Libra. The shooting was scheduled to start on 20 February 2020, but due to the increase in the number of coronavirus cases in Italy, the production work got halted.
After almost three weeks, the shooting resumed in July with the strict health guidelines to ensure cast and crew safety. The production of the film was again delayed as 12 people tested COVID-19 positive on the set. A week later, the shooting resumed again. Cruise had berated a couple of crew members who he had reasons to believe had not followed safety protocols while filming the movie.
Recently, Variety confirmed that the movie’s shooting would be concluded in the United Kingdom at Longcross Film Studios, which was initially planned in Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden. Longcross used to be the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defence site, which is now used to redevelop into the studios. Many movies like Guardians of Galaxy, Skyfall, Thor: The Dark, Artemis Fowl, The King’s Man, Death on the Nile, and The Gentlemen were shot in here.
According to the sources, Variety confirmed that the team is back from the Christmas break, shifting in the Warner Bros. Studio production. Longcross is in Surrey in Southeast England that falls within Tier 4. And the team is allowed to continue the shoot under the COVID-19 protocols.
The United Kingdom is again facing the devastating wave of the coronavirus. Since November, UK has reported a hasty increase in COVID-19 cases in London and South East England.
Hopefully, the film won’t experience any more interruptions. And the team can finish the production work peacefully after so many delays.
