The eighth ‘Mission: Impossible’ movie has already begun filming, Film News reports.

The Hollywood star shot ‘Mission: Impossible 7’ amid the COVID-19 pandemic and it was originally slated to premiere on September 30, 2022. But due to problems relating to the health crisis, its release has now been pushed back until July 14, 2023.

‘Mission: Impossible 7’ has been made at a cost of $290 million, with tax incentives, according to The Hollywood Reporter. And the movie will appear on the Paramount+ streaming app 45 days after its theatrical release.

‘Mission: Impossible 8’, on the other hand, was originally due to premiere on July 7, 2023 – but it’s now been delayed until June 28, 2024.

The project features returning stars Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, and Rebecca Ferguson, as well as newcomers Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, Shea Whigham, and Cary Elwes.

The timescales for the back-to-back productions were changed because of the pandemic, which created a huge amount of disruption throughout the movie industry.
