Tom Cruise Films An Insane Train Crash In The Latest Set Video From MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 7
While filming on Mission: Impossible 7 may be reaching the finish line, it looks like they still have a few insane stunts left on their to-do list, including what appears to be a wild train crash.
As filming continues on Paramount's highly anticipated Mission: Impossible 7 (and 8?), an awesome batch of set photos and a video have found their way online, revealing director Christopher McQuarrie, star Tom Cruise, and the production team shooting what appears to be a runaway train crash in Derbyshire.
While we'll have to wait a while to learn the context of the sequence, Cruise is believed to have been filming aboard the train earlier in the week. However, an observer who was on-site notes that the stunt may not have gone according to plan, as Cruise and company didn't seem all that enthusiastic after the train crash-landed - although it's really just speculation for now as it's hard to imagine the observer being able to get a clear idea from his vantage point. Regardless, we'll likely hear a lot more about this stunt in the coming months.
It remains unclear whether shooting on Mission: Impossible 8 will begin as soon as Mission 7 wraps, or if they'll take a hiatus (and a much-needed vacation) to allow Cruise to hit the promotional tour for his other upcoming actioner Top Gun: Maverick, which is currently scheduled to hit theaters this November.
As far as we know, only Cruise and new co-star Hayley Atwell are on location filming this train scene, which could very well be the sequel's last schedule as returning star Rebecca Ferguson recently revealed that she's already wrapped her scenes - even debuting a brand new look at the U.K. premiere of Reminiscence earlier this week, which suddenly makes her status for the next film a bit uncertain, although she was previously confirmed to be on board for both installments.
In addition to Cruise as the headliner, the highly anticipated McQ-directed action blockbuster will also see the return of Ving Rhames as Luther Stickell, Simon Pegg as Benji Dunn, Rebecca Ferguson as Ilsa Faust, Academy Award-nominee Vanessa Kirby as the White Widow, and Henry Czerny as Eugene Kittridge.
Newcomers to the franchise include the aforementioned Hayley Atwell (Avengers: Endgame; Captain America: The First Avenger), Pom Klementieff (Avengers: Endgame; Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2), Shea Whigham (Perry Mason; Marvel's Agent Carter), Esai Morales (Titans; La Bamba), Rob Delaney (Deadpool 2; Hobbs & Shaw), Charles Parnell (Top Gun: Maverick; Transformers: Age of Extinction), Indira Varma (Game of Thrones; Carnival Row), Mark Gatiss (The Father; The Favourite), and Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride; Saw).
Mission: Impossible 7 lights the fuse in theaters on May 27, 2022; followed by Mission: Impossible 8 on July 7, 2023.
