Mission: Impossible 7 And Other Films Will Resume Production In The UK Very Soon
Tom Cruise's next major project is one of several projects looking to receive an exemption from current quarantine rules and begin filming again.
Mission: Impossible 7 and other films with plans to shoot in the UK. As noted by The Hollywood Reporter, the UK government is making an exemption for some international blockbuster films with plans to shoot in the country, as long as individuals travelling to the country stay within "bubbled" work environments and do not interact outside of them.
Film productions around the world are currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. New Zealand has now allowed film productions to resume as the country continues to report no new cases a day, and while the UK is still seeing many new cases, precautions are being taken.
Oliver Dowden, the UK's secretary of state for digital, culture, media, and sport, says that he has discussed plans directly with Mission: Impossible star and producer Tom Cruise, and plans are underway to ensure that filming can begin again soon, although cast and crew coming into the country will need to self-isolate before filming can start.

New exemption from quarantine rules for filmmakers means we can start making the 🌍 best blockbusters again
Great to talk to @TomCruise last weekend about getting the cameras rolling again on Mission: Impossible 7 at #Leavesden https://t.co/We5JhITbYg pic.twitter.com/ebw33aeRXC
Mission: Impossible 7 has been delayed until November 2021 following these production issues. The film is set to bring back Eugene Kittridge, a character played by actor Henry Czerny in the very first Mission: Impossible film. The film and Mission: Impossible 8 are set to shoot back-to-back, but this could depend on what is possible going forward.
Jurassic Park: Dominion is also currently in the process of resuming filming, with producers having taken many steps to ensure the safety of cast and crew. Other filmmakers have not been so careful--the Michael Bay-produced Songbird has been blocked from filming by SAG-AFTRA.
This exemption will likely see The Batman return to production too, after shutting down in March.
