Cary Elwes wraps shooting on Mission: Impossible 7 in picture with co-star Tom Cruise. Shooting on the seventh Mission: Impossible film has seemingly been going on forever, with some enormous COVID delays disrupting the general flow, and it’s still continuing seemingly forever.
Somewhere around one of those new Mission: Impossible cast members has now finished up work on the film. Elwes celebrated the second with a social media post including a picture of himself with Cruise, and one with himself and director Christopher McQuarrie. See the post in the space beneath:
Details about Elwes’ person are being left hidden, as are most things about Mission: Impossible 7. The only of the new characters who’s been somewhat teased is Atwell’s, with McQuarrie describing her as a “destructive force of nature” and Atwell herself chiming in that she plays someone with “somewhat ambiguous” loyalties. Surely, most of the characters in the Mission: Impossible series could be described as having “somewhat ambiguous” loyalties, with the possible exceptions of Ethan Hunt himself and his constant sidekicks Benji Dunn and Luther Stickell.
Mission: Impossible 7 of course comes after the last film in the series, 2018’s Mission: Impossible ? Fallout, turned into a massive hit with $791 million grossed around the world. The Mission: Impossible series has in fact gotten one of the additional fascinating stories in ongoing film history given its long perseverance streak in our current reality where franchises seldom have such long shelf-lives. Like the James Bond series before it, Mission: Impossible has demonstrated that spy thrillers stuffed with action are always well known with audiences. The key of course is to continue developing things even while holding fast to the proven formulas. It also helps to have the selling point of Cruise and his willingness to risk his life to make increasingly more intricate stunt sequences. Mission: Impossible 7 might be consuming a huge chunk of time to finish, however passing by the series’ earlier history, the difficult work will all be awesome eventually.
