Tom Cruise action movie Mission: Impossible 7 production halted when coronavirus hit Italy back in February. Due to coronavirus pandemic, many major movie production stopped and Mission: Impossible 7 was the first movie among them, but now few movies gave officially indication that they are starting production work soon as some countries like the UK and New Zealand are lifting the restriction of lockdown. Now it’s officially signaled that Mission: Impossible 7 will restart its production this September, After almost 4 months the first movie was Avatar 2 to set start its new date to resume its productions with safety precautions, and it’s mandatory that cast and crew will do 2-week quarantine In New Zealand. It looks like Matrix 4 and The batman also planning to resume their production work soon.
When Mission: Impossible 7 production stopped. Paramount delayed the release date from July 2021 to November 2021, Mission: Impossible 8 also pushed back, as Mission: Impossible 8 production is set right after the completion of Mission: Impossible 7, In March there were rumors that Mission: Impossible will again start its production work in the UK, but they were sure to be untrue as director Christopher McQuarrie and his cast and crew have waited for the all the things gets normal and safe to start their work again.
Now it’s a hope that production will resume its work in September. Assistant director Tommy Gormley said:
They took a decision to start its production after the UK Government Issue guidelines for the production of Film and TV, These guidelines are mainly helpful for huge productions like Mission: Impossible 7 because the film requires a large number of cast and crew team to be present on set at one time. Simon Pegg who plays the role of Beji Dunn in Mission: Impossible movies told variety that they will start production work with the outdoor first, and it’s a doable of course with the proper safety precautions.
Due to delay in production, it not just affected the release date but also recently replaced the villain role, Nicholas Hoult, by Esai Morales after the scheduling conflicts. Luckily the biggest conflict of stopped production is resolved, while the production start date is still months away, and its good that cast and crew are taking precautions, and hopefully the production work will start again without any further issues.
