Is Tom Cruise In Good Health To Return To "Mission Impossible" 7 And 8?

Nagini Shree |Jan 15, 2019

It is not a surprise when Tom Cruise announced on Tuesday that the next two instalments will soon be on their way.

After doing wonders on the box office with Mission: Impossible – Fallout, which broke the record for highest opening weekend in the series' history, director Cristopher McQuarrie is set to return to the franchise, but to write and direct two Mission: Impossible sequels. Tom Cruise, who has stuck to the super spy role of Ethan Hunt since the first Mission Impossible in 1996, will be next seen on the screens.

Both Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise took to Twitter to announce that the next two movies in the long-run series will be shot back-to-back, scheduled to arrive in two and three year's time. It means that Mission: Impossible fans have to wait until the summer of 2021 and 2022 in order to take advantage of the popularity of the series, and at that time,  the 56-year-old Cruise will be 60 years of age when part 8 arrives in cinemas. So far, the superstar still shows no sign of slowing down.

It is reported that the release will be dropped in 2021 to avoid Paramount and Cruise’s next big venture, Top Gun: Maverick, which is slated to hit theatres in 2020.

The latest sequel of Mission Impossible series earned a gross of more than $790 million internationally and was also the best-reviewed entry with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 97%. This must be a strong motivation for the studio to prep for post-production.
Paramount has secured an immediate future for the Mission: Impossible, fans will undoubtedly be wondering if these two sequels could be the end.
