About three weeks ago it was announced that Christopher McQuarrie would return to write and direct the seventh and eighth installments of the Mission: Impossible franchise (See the announcement here). While it was announced that the seventh installment would be released in 2021 and the eighth in 2022, no official date had been given until last night. Now it’s been confirmed that Mission: Impossible 7 will be released on July 23, 2021 while Mission: Impossible 8 will be released on August 5, 2022. It was also confirmed today that most of the production team behind the fifth and last year’s sixth film will return for the project with back-to-back shoots for both films going throughout 2020.
