Christopher McQuarrie’s Mission: Impossible 7 has finally wrapped filming. The highly popular action-adventure franchise’s seventh instalment has had its fair share of setbacks on the way to completion, with scandal and controversy leading some to believe that the entire production was doomed.
Tom Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie, on the other hand, have managed to hold everything together till the end.
Agent Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his team of IMF agents were last charged with rescuing the world in Mission: Impossible – Fallout in 2018. Since then, fans have been teased with the prospect of a return to the franchise, as well as a back-to-back filming of Mission: Impossible 7 and 8.
The concept that two instalments may be shot concurrently generated much too much speculation about what kind of connection the films would have with one another.
Unfortunately, the plan to shoot both Mission: Impossible films together was canceled early this year due to scheduling conflicts with Cruise’s impending sequel, Top Gun: Maverick. As a result, Mission: Impossible 8 will now be released in 2023, with Mission: Impossible 7 set to hit theatres in September. Hopefully, these dates will not need to be adjusted further.
“The best in the world”
Mission: Impossible 7 has been filming in various locations across the world for what seems like a lifetime to fans. Filming has now concluded, according to official confirmation from McQuarrie’s Instagram account. McQuarrie shared an emotional message with a black and white photo of himself and Cruise seated atop what seems to be an overturned train car, calling his cast and crew “the best in the world.”
Take a look at the image below, as well as McQuarrie’s message:
Despite the film’s secret, the difficulties experienced during Mission: Impossible 7’s lengthy production will hopefully enhance to the final product rather than subtract from it. Challenging and unexpected moments can frequently result in new methods of doing things or getting things done, and the film has had plenty of opportunity in this regard.
Whatever happens, completing a picture of this magnitude is always a huge effort, and McQuarrie’s gratitude to his actors and crew certainly reflect that.
