The theatrical release of the much anticipated two chapters in actor Tom Cruise's action franchise - Mission: Impossible 7 and Mission: Impossible 8 - have been delayed by Paramount pictures due to the Covid-19 crisis.
The seventh sequel of the franchise was initially set to hit theatres on July 23 this year but will now debut on November 19, 2021.
Meanwhile, Mission: Impossible 8, originally due in theatres on August 5, 2022, will hit the big screen on November 4, 2022, reported Variety.
The shoot of Mission: Impossible 7 was paused as a precautionary measure to combat the spread of the coronavirus.
The 57-year-old actor had been about to start filming in Venice, Italy, when the studio pumped the breaks in late February. With Christopher McQuarrie at the helm, the upcoming sequel will have Cruise returning as the seemingly indestructible secret agent Ethan Hunt.
