UPDATE: According to reports director Christopher McQuarrie is considering bringing back Henry Cavill as John Walker. Of course as we all know, Walker did not survive the events of ‘Fallout’ but he may be brought back in flashbacks.
The same idea may also be done with Alec Baldwin’s IMF boss Alan Hunley.
Director Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible – Fallout) has officially signed on to return to write and direct Mission: Impossible 7 and 8 back-to-back.
This comes to no surprise as last year’s ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ was the franchise’s biggest hit grossing over $790 million worldwide. McQuarrie will work on the scripts for ‘M:I-7’ and ‘M:I-8’ as he waits for star Tom Cruise to finish filming ‘Top Gun: Maverick’. The plan is to start filming later this year and eventually release ‘M:I-7’ in 2021 and ‘M:I-8’ in 2022.
