A new action-packed film is coming up soon, and it’s none other than our very own: Mission Impossible. Yes, that’s true; the seventh installment of the Mission Impossible franchise is around the corner featuring Ethan Hunt once again. Considering the commercial success of the franchise’s recent installments, especially the latest one: Mission Impossible – Fallout, it was only a matter of time before a new installment is announced. Predictably enough, the seventh and eighth films of the sequel will be shot simultaneously with releases in the successive years of 2021 and 2022. So, the viewers what’s better can you wish for.
The Cruise himself gave the first official confirmation of the film in Jan 2019. He informed of the release dates of the consecutive films, and that both will be directed and written by McQuarrie. However, the pandemic is seriously hindering the production phase, similar to the other films as The Batman and Bond’s No Time to Die. Despite all of this, filming is continued and not much delay in the release date is announced yet which is very promising news. Further, pleasant updates are rolling as the new casts are being included; the likes of Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, and Shea Whigham. Thus, it is no surprise that, as per experts forecast, Mission Impossible 7 is likely to surpass the commercial success of the predecessor of the film.
Although the filming has barely begun, the Polish railway bridge controversy has already hit the news. Initially, during the pre-production, the plan was sketched to blow a bridge with the speedy train to mimic the film: The General (1926). However, after Swedish authorities refused to permit such kind of stunt, the Polish Railways proposed an abandoned train track of WW II period. However, who knew that the news won’t be digested by the history and heritage enthusiasts that resulted in protests. Thus, probably backing out from the original plan was the best way out. The director clarified later that there was never actually a plan to demolish the historic bridge that significantly calmed downed the sentiments. Another unfortunate incident occurred in Oxfordshire during the motorcycle stunt scene when a large fire broke out. The expensive stunt scene reportedly took six weeks to prepare; however, fortunately, no injuries or casualties resulted from the happening.
The recent rumors, the hints from the cast and director, and the occasional social media uploads of the people involved indicate that something big is coming up. The director recently said about Hunt’s aerial stunt, “We’ve figured out three obscene things that he’s doing that I’m terrified of, it’ll make the helicopter chase look like tinker toys.” The news came just recently from Norway that Cruise has been seen riding a motorcycle off a cliff and then coming down with a parachute. Further, the reported collaboration between Cruise and SpaceX and NASA is also no short of surprising news. All great things are boiling up. The result is going to be no less than breathtaking.
