Mission: Impossible 7 Looking to Resume Filming This Fall

June 2, 2020 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

The team behind Mission: Impossible 7 looks to pick up filming again this fall. Tommy Gormley, who is a first assistant director on the fiilm, spoke with the BBC (per Variety) and confirmed that the film plans to begin shooting again in September.

“We hope to start shooting again in September,” he said. “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. We hope to restart in September, we hope to visit all the countries we planned to and look to do a big chunk of it back in the UK on the backlot and in the studio, so September through to end April/May is our targets. We are convinced we can do this.”

Gormley noted that given the size of the production, returning to filming will be challenging but he is convinced it’s possible as long as they’re careful, noting, “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.”

The film is currently set for a November 19th, 2021 release date.
