- With safety measures in place, 'Mission: Impossible 7' will resume production on the movie in September after being shut down due to COVID-19.
Mission: Impossible 7, the next installment of the film franchise, will resume production in September as filming stop earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
First assistant director Tommy Gormley told BBC Radio 4’s Today program, “We hope to start shooting again in September. We were days from shooting in Venice — we were right at the epicenter when it all kicked off — so we had to shut down in Venice where we were four or five days from shooting.”
Reportedly, the production will begin with outdoor shoots first and will follow the British Film Commission safety protocols. Testing will be implemented and safety measures must be followed by all on set.
“We have to get back to work for every person in the film industry, tens of thousands of us, we have to get back to work. We have to do it safely and protect our colleagues, but it is definitely possible and we’re working flat out to make it happen,” Gormley added.
Tom Cruise will be reprising his role from the franchise by Paramount Pictures. It was also recently announced that Esai Morales has replaced Nicholas Hoult as the villain in the installment. The latest movie Mission: Impossible – Fallout released in 2018.
