Christopher McQuarrie To Direct Back To Back ‘Mission: Impossible’ Films

Christopher McQuarrie will return to direct the next two Mission: Impossible films back to back, with release dates in the summer of 2021 and 2022.

The Mission: Impossible series remains one of the most successful and criminally underrated film franchises to date. The latest entry in the series, Mission: Impossible – Fallout, was a critical and commercial success, and Paramount is looking to continue said success.

Variety has reported that Christopher McQuarrie, who helmed Fallout and its predecessor Rogue Nation, will return to direct the seventh and eighth Mission: Impossible films back to back, with release dates in the summer of 2021 and 2022 respectively.

Tom Cruise, who plays IMF agent Ethan Hunt and serves as a producer on the films, confirmed his involvement via Twitter. The filming schedule is set up so as not to conflict with Cruise’s filming of Top Gun: Maverick.
