Tom Cruise’s upcoming action sequel, Mission: Impossible 8 has begun production even as Mission: Impossible 7‘s budget skyrockets.
Way back in early 2019, it was revealed that the seventh installment to Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible series would shoot back to back with the eighth installment. Unfortunately, like many other films, production on the seventh film was halted several times due to Covid-19 issues and was one of many Paramount films that were delayed due to schedule reshuffling. Production for the seventh film finally wrapped back in September of 2021 but the decision was made not to shoot the films back to back. Now at long last, production on Mission: Impossible 8 has begun.
According to The Hollywood Reporter and confirmed by Collider, the filming for Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible 8 has started. In that same report, it also noted that the still incomplete film’s budget had skyrocketed to over $290M with the film still incomplete. It is currently unknown how much higher the budget could go before its September release.
Here is the official synopsis for the most recent film in the series:
The best intentions often come back to haunt you. MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT finds Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team (Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames) along with some familiar allies (Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan) in a race against time after a mission gone wrong. Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, and Vanessa Kirby also join the dynamic cast with filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie returning to the helm.
Directed by Christopher McQuarrie, the film stars Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Michelle Monaghan, Alec Baldwin, Sean Harris, Vanessa Kirby, Henry Cavill, Sian Brooke, Frederick Schmidt, and Angela Bassett.
