Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible 7 was set to begin filming in Venice but has been delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak in Italy.
After Mission: Impossible – Fallout blew away fans in 2018 with its nuclear-centric premise, all eyes have turned towards what’s next for the Tom Cruise franchise. The seventh film in the Mission: Impossible franchise was set to bring in Marvel alums Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, and Nicolas Hault into the globe-trotting series based on the television series of the same name.
The seventh film in the franchise, currently untitled, was intended to be filmed back-to-back with the eighth film. Unfortunately, with the coronavirus outbreak ravaging Italy, the filming for the Tom Cruise project has been delayed. According to Variety, the Christopher McQuarrie directed project was set to begin filming in Venice, with much of the film taking place in the rest of Italy, including its capital and historic city of Rome.
One of the biggest culprits of the coronavirus outbreak is Italy, with the country operating in critical condition as death tolls continue to rise daily. With the film’s production indefinitely delayed, it’s quite unlikely that the Tom Cruise film will hit theatres in time for its July 23rd, 2021 release date. With the film’s narrative directly tied to Italy, there’s no telling when the Tom Cruise film begin production.
Mission: Impossible 7 is just one of many films that has had its production halted due to the coronavirus. Recent projects include The fourth Matrix film, and the highly anticipated The Batman, which stars Robert Pattinson.
