It seems to be an envelope Mission: Impossible 7 after what has been a tumultuous shot. On Twitter, the Light the Fuse podcast shared a photo taken from Gaffer Martin Smith’s Instagram account. It reveals a large clapboard with M: I VII logo along with the message “Mission Complete!” You can take a look at the wrap image below.
Christopher McQuarrie writes and instructs Mission: Impossible 7, which marks the third film in the series to be directed by the filmmaker. He also co-produces with star Tom Cruise, JJ Abrams, David Ellison and Jake Myers. Cruise is, of course, back in the lead role as Ethan Hunt with the rest of the ensemble crew, including Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Esai Morales, Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff and Cary Elwes. It was recently reported that the footage was wrapped up for Atwell.
It must be a good feeling for everyone involved to wrap up the sequel’s recording. It has taken a very long time to get to this point from the start of production, as the pandemic in 2020 would result in frequent filming and delays in the release date. Production was also plagued with other problems, including a fire that broke out on sets during a motorcycle stunt that went wrong. This scene had taken six weeks to prepare and had cost the production a lot of money. McQuarrie was also protected by the plan to destroy a railway bridge in Poland to the shooting, which resulted in yet another change of plans.
Meanwhile, Tom Cruise had made a great effort to get the film despite all the ongoing challenges. The pandemic had been particularly severe at the time of filming, though Cruise spent his own money on cruise ships to keep the cast and crew isolated and hopefully safe from coronavirus. Scandalously, Cruise was caught on sound shouting at two crew members he discovered ignoring the set’s mandated security protocols. Many had actually praised Cruise for taking the virus so seriously when others apparently were not.
“I said what I said,” Cruise told Empire Magazine about the incident. “There was a lot at stake at the time. But it wasn’t my whole crew. I got the crew to leave the set and it was just selected people. And here we are and continue filming. All those feelings went through my mind And for the whole crew to know that we had started rolling on a movie, it was just a huge relief … It was very emotional. “
In the original rant, Cruise said in part, “If I see you do it again, you’re f-king away. And if anyone in this crew does, it’s it — and you too and you too. And you, you must ever f-king do it again.They are out there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us.We’re creating thousands of jobs you morph-kers.That’s it.No apologies.You can tell it to the people who “They’re losing their f-king home because our industry is shut down. We’re not shutting this f-king movie down. Is that understood? If I see it again, you’re f-king gone.”
At the very least, all this stress of shooting can finally be put behind him at this point. Fans can take care Mission: Impossible 7 will be released in theaters September 30, 2022. Meanwhile, fans can also anticipate the next film in the series, which Mission: Impossible 8 has already been given a release date of July 7, 2023. The films were originally supposed to record back-to-back, but the pandemic resulted in the eighth film also being delayed.
