Christopher McQuarrie, the director who gave us the spectacular two Mission: Impossible films — Rogue Nation and Fallout, announced that the shooting of the seventh version of the highly successful spy thriller franchise has gone on floors.
McQuarrie took to Instagram to share a picture of enchanting snow-capped hills with a man (possibly Tom Cruise) standing in the foreground upon a ramp that appears as the end. McQuarrie captioned the photo, “Action…MI7 Day 1.”
The untitled seventh film in the series will be set on Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his allies as they face a new opponent endangering the world.
Mission: Impossible – Fallout, the culmination of the three film Syndicate arc that began with Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol in 2011, starred Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Sean Harris, Michelle Monaghan and Alec Baldwin who essayed their roles from previous movies. Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett and Vanessa Kirby joined the franchise with Fallout.
Fallout received one of the best reviews for any action film in history. It has a 97% rating at Rotten Tomatoes, which is equal to 2015 film, George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road. The critical consensus read, “Fast, sleek, and fun, Mission: Impossible – Fallout lives up to the “impossible” part of its name by setting yet another high mark for insane set pieces in a franchise full of them.”
Mission: Impossible 7 is slated to see the light on November 19, 2021.
