‘Mission: Impossible 7’ Paused After Positive Covid Test

The next installment in the storied “Mission: Impossible” franchise has halted production in the UK after at least one member tested positive for Covid-19. 

Production will not resume for 14 days, while those involved (not yet clear if it’s more than one) self-isolate. A statement from the production read: “We have temporarily halted production on ‘Mission: Impossible 7’ until June 14th, due to positive coronavirus test results during routine testing. We are following all safety protocols and will continue to monitor the situation.”

“Mission: Impossible 7” filming has been heavily affected—like many other films—by the pandemic. In February of 2020, production on the film stopped as Covid-19 spread across the planet. Then, production hit another delay last October after 12 members tested positive in Italy, pushing filming back a week. Recently, we learned they would no longer be filming “7” and “8” back-to-back. Instead, they are opting for a short delay between the films for Tom Cruise to push “Top Gun: Maverick.”

Most famously, “Mission: Impossible 7” made headlines for Tom Cruise’s recorded explicit rant to crew members breaching Covid safety guidelines. The incident sparked a great deal of debate online about whether it was warranted.

Christopher McQuarrie, who directed the last two “Mission: Impossible” films “Rogue Nation” and “Fallout,” has returned for “7” and “8” with the main cast. 

As of now, “Mission: Impossible 7” will release on May 27, 2022.
