After spending some time filming scenes in Norway, the production of Mission: Impossible 7 has moved to Rome, Italy as The Associated Press has posted some set footage of actors Tom Cruise and Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter, Captain America: The First Avenger) filming an action scene that features a police car.
They had been planning on filming in Venice before a COVID-19 outbreak in the city led to a production halt.
Hayley Atwell has been teasing stunt driving and weapons training for the film on her Instagram account.
Christopher McQuarrie has returned to write and direct the next two installments which would be using the working title Libra as primary filming was taking place at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in Watford, England.
There was a recent casting shake-up as character actor Esai Morales (Ozark, Titans) has replaced Nicholas Hoult as the film’s villain after Hoult had to bow-out over a scheduling conflict. The rest of the cast includes Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Vanessa Kirby, Pom Klementieff, Shea Whigham, and the original film’s cast member Henry Czerny.
The studio had recently bumped the release dates for the pair of action sequels due to the production delays, those new spots in the release calendar are November 19th, 2021, and November 4th, 2022.
