Mission Impossible 7 Train Stunt teased By Director Christopher McQuarrie

The seventh movie in the blockbuster action franchise releases in May 2022.

Mission Impossible director Christopher McQuarrie has teased one of the stunts from the upcoming seventh movie in the hit action series. The currently untitled MI7 is due to hit theaters on May 27, 2022.

The image shows an old-fashioned interior of a train carriage, with a camera at the far end. McQuarrie himself is in the picture, but he's upside-down, implying that the carriage has possibly crashed or derailed. On-set images released back in April showed star Tom Cruise performing stunts on the exterior of a steam train in Yorkshire, UK, so presumably, this new shot is part of this sequence. Check it out below:

Mission Impossible 7 has been in production since early last year and has experienced multiple delays. The movie was shooting in Italy when it became the first European country to experience a COVID outbreak in February 2020, and despite moving to the UK was shut down entirely within a few weeks. Production resumed in September with tight COVID-19 protocols. In December a recording of Cruise yelling at crew members who had broken safety rules leaked, and last month the movie was shut down again due to another on-set outbreak.

Mission Impossible 7 also stars Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson, Hayley Atwell, and Simon Pegg. While production continues, co-star Cary Elwes recently confirmed he had wrapped his scenes, while Atwell thanked the crew for their "strength and stamina" on the epic shoot.

The initial plan was to shoot Mission Impossible 7 and 8 back-to-back, but the delays and Tom Cruise's publicity duties for the upcoming Top Gun: Maverick have meant that the eighth movie will go into production at a later date. That film is currently scheduled for a July 2023 release.
