The Mission Impossible franchise’s 7th and 8th installments were announced together by Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie on January 15, 2019.

Despite facing several delays during filming, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two is currently scheduled for release on June 28, 2024.

This date will be less than a year after the release of Dead Reckoning Part One, allowing audiences ample time to catch up before the grand finale.

Remarkably, this release will also mark 28 years since the original Mission: Impossible film, solidifying the franchise’s status as one of the longest-running action franchises in history.

However, filming for Dead Reckoning Part Two is only 40% complete, as confirmed by McQuarrie. The production break was initially attributed to the WGA strike, but a later report clarified that it was to accommodate promotional duties for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One.

Once the promotional tour concludes, filming for Dead Reckoning Part Two will resume in the summer. If all goes smoothly, the film remains on track for its anticipated summer 2024 release.

After experiencing Covid-related delays during the production of the first half, it is hoped that the second part will proceed more seamlessly.

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One concludes with a thrilling sequence aboard the Orient Express, where Ethan Hunt successfully retrieves the key to The Entity’s chamber, the highly sought-after objective.

However, the chamber is located within the wreckage of a Russian submarine called the Sevastopol.

While Ethan’s mission is to destroy the rogue A.I., numerous nations are vying to seize and potentially weaponize it. As a result, the entire planet is in pursuit of Ethan and his IMF team, including newcomer Grace (Hayley Atwell), to obtain the key and halt his mission.

The whereabouts of the sunken Sevastopol remain unknown to Hunt and his team, making its discovery a crucial part of Dead Reckoning Part Two’s narrative.

The sequel also needs to address lingering mysteries, such as the identity of Marie (Mariela Garriga) and her connection to Ethan.

In a flashback set 30 years prior, Gabriel kills Marie before Ethan’s eyes, an event that motivated Ethan to join the IMF.

Additionally, unanswered questions revolve around Luther’s (Ving Rhames) disappearance with the hard drive containing a portion of the villainous A.I., as well as the motivation behind Jasper Briggs’ (Shea Whigham) relentless pursuit of Hunt.

Also, the fact that Jasper shares a surname with Dan Briggs, the original founder, and leader of the IMF team in the Mission: Impossible TV series, could hold a significant clue in Mission Impossible 8.
