Over two decades after the first Mission: Impossible film hit theaters, the franchise is ostensibly more popular than any other time in recent memory, thanks to a year ago’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout. With reports developing that Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie will coordinate the following two sequels, it’s conceivable that the two experiences could be star Tom Cruise’s last.
Different installments in the franchise have been helmed by yearning and known directors, from Brian De Palma to John Woo to J.J. Abrams, with the only in the arrangement being Cruise.
The key detail in reports about the franchise’s future is that the following two continuations will be filmed consecutively and arrive in theaters in the summers of 2021 and 2022. This could be an early affirmation that the planned story was too huge for one film and, as a sendoff to Cruise, the last part in Ethan Hunt’s adventure must be spread out into two movies.
The last chapters in these adored adventures, similar to Twilight or Harry Potter, have been separated into two sections to suit the majority of the enthralling reveals, as well as to augment profits for the last film. Separating the last chapter is certifiably not something just used for books, as Avengers: Infinity War was initially reported as being separated into two parts and instead, Marvel Studios rather gave each film its very own unique title.

Cruise will be 60 years of age when the eighth film in the franchise is released, with the film possibly presenting physical limits for the actor. While recording a stunt for the past film, Cruise broke his lower leg, causing entanglements with the shoot.
With Cruise’s inclinations to do his own stunts and the franchise routinely enhancing the death-defying situations, the actor could wind up in an inconceivably risky situation.
Given what number of locales the series has investigated, numerous gatherings of people are thinking about whether a trek to space is likely.
“We’ve thought about it,” Cruise admitted to Collider. “It’s like how do we do it? It’s the mechanics of getting it there. How do you build a sequence there and how long can we have that sequence? Because if I went up and just dropped, it’s the kind of time — how do you put that into the structure of a screenplay of a Mission? When we’re doing these things, there’s so much story going on. As opposed to just a cool shot, we want character and story going throughout. I can’t help but look at that building up here or at the Eiffel Tower and seeing stories. What could the team do and what could we do? But we have thought about that.”
