New Mission: Impossible 7 set photos offer a peek at an intense fight scene between Hayley Atwell and Esai Morales. The long-running spy franchise reached new heights with its most recent installment, 2018’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout, and already director Christopher McQuarrie and star Tom Cruise have shown no signs of slowing down. Mission: Impossible 7, which will be a two-part story along with the eighth film, is bringing back a slew of familiar characters while also introducing new ones, like Atwell’s ambiguous lead and Morales’ yet-to-be-revealed villain.
Mission: Impossible 7 has been in production all year, though it’s suffered more than a few setbacks as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Paramount was forced to push its release back from July 2021 to November 2021 following production being suspended for a time, with Mission: Impossible 8 following a year later. Additionally, the production delay resulted in Morales taking over for Nicholas Hoult, who was originally tapped to play the villain. Scheduling conflicts made Hoult drop out. Frequent setbacks aside, Mission: Impossible 7 has proceeded with filming over the past few weeks, giving fans an idea of what they can expect from the next action-packed installment.
