Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two is an upcoming American action spy film written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie, who is also producing it with Tom Cruise. Based on the television series Mission: Impossible by Bruce Geller, it is a direct sequel to Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One (2023) and the eighth and final installment in the Mission: Impossible film series.

Cruise returns in his eighth appearance as the series's lead character, Ethan Hunt, whom he would have portrayed for over 28 years by the time the film is released; it is expected to be his final appearance in the series.[1] Ving Rhames, Henry Czerny, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Hayley Atwell, Shea Whigham and Pom Klementieff all return in their roles from previous films in the series. Esai Morales returns from the seventh film as the villain.

The film is scheduled to be released by Paramount Pictures on June 28, 2024.

Cast

Additionally, Pom Klementieff has been cast in an undisclosed role.

Production

On January 14, 2019, Cruise initially announced that the seventh and eighth Mission: Impossible films would be shot back-to-back with McQuarrie writing and directing both films for July 23, 2021, and August 5, 2022 releases.[4][5] However, in February 2021, Deadline Hollywood revealed that Paramount had decided to no longer move forward with that plan.[6] In February, Ferguson confirmed her return for the seventh installment,[7][8] while Hayley Atwell and Pom Klementieff joined the film's cast in September.[9][10] In December, Simon Pegg confirmed his return for the film, while Shea Whigham was also cast.[11][12]

Nicholas Hoult joined the cast by January 2020, along with Henry Czerny, who will reprise his role as Eugene Kittridge for the first time since the 1996 film.[13][14] Vanessa Kirby also announced she was returning for both films.[15] However, due to scheduling conflicts, Hoult was replaced by Esai Morales for both films.[16]

In February 2021, Deadline Hollywood reported that the film will no longer be filmed back-to-back with Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One.[17] In November, the director was reportedly in the process of rewriting the film,[18] and filming began shortly after production wrapped on the seventh film.[19] It was announced that the seventh and eighth films will be a send-off to Ethan Hunt.[20]

On March 24, 2022, Collider reported the beginning of filming Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two.[21]

Release

The film is scheduled to be released on June 28, 2024.[22] It was previously set for release on August 5, 2022,[23] but was delayed to November 4, 2022,[24] July 7, 2023,[25] and then to the current date due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
