Mission: Impossible – Fallout is an upcoming American action spy film written, directed and produced by Christopher McQuarrie. It is the sixth installment in the Mission: Impossible film series and stars Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Michelle Monaghan, Alec Baldwin, and Sean Harris who all reprise their roles from previous films. Henry Cavill, Wes Bentley, Vanessa Kirby, Sian Brooke, and Angela Bassett will join the franchise. The film is scheduled to be released on July 27, 2018, and will be the first in the series to be released in RealD 3D and IMAX 3D. The film will also have a 2D IMAX release. McQuarrie is also the first director to direct two films in the franchise.


When an IMF mission ends badly, the world is faced with dire consequences. As Ethan Hunt takes it upon himself to fulfill his original briefing, the CIA begins to question his loyalty and his motives. Hunt finds himself in a race against time, hunted by assassins and former allies while trying to prevent a global catastrophe.



On May 23, 2015, The Tracking Board reported that Paramount Pictures was developing a sixth Mission: Impossible film with Tom Cruise, J. J. Abrams for Bad Robot, and David Ellison and Dana Goldberg returning to produce the film for Skydance, along with Don Granger and Matt Grimm executive producing and Elizabeth Raposo overseeing development.[12] On July 28, 2015, Cruise confirmed on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart that a sixth film was already being developed, and he told Jon Stewart that the shooting of the film would start in summer 2016.[13] Later on August 2, 2015, Paramount's executive Rob Moore told Variety that the sequel was already in works, stating that they were "very happy to be developing this movie with Tom," and "there has to be another movie."[14] On November 19, 2015, it was announced that Paramount had hired again Christopher McQuarrie to write the film while it was possible that he would also direct the film, and the studio was moving fast with plans for shooting to start in August 2016.[15] On November 30, 2015, McQuarrie confirmed through his Twitter account that he would be back for directing duty as well, and would also produce the film along with Cruise.[16][17] On December 8, 2015, Showbiz411 confirmed that the fifth film's female lead, Rebecca Ferguson, would be returning for the sequel.[2]

On August 19, 2016, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Paramount had halted pre-production on the film due to dispute over salary between Cruise and the studio, which Cruise wanted to get equal or more what he was being paid by Universal Studios for the film The Mummy.[18] On September 16, THR confirmed that Cruise's dispute over salary with the studio had been resolved and the production would now begin in Spring 2017.[1] In November, Jeremy Renner—who portrayed William Brandt in Ghost Protocol and Rogue Nation—stated that he was unsure if he would be part of the sixth film, due to scheduling conflicts with Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and its untitled sequel (2019).[19] His non-inclusion was confirmed in March 2017 at CinemaCon.[3]

In February, McQuarrie revealed that the film would include more backstory to Hunt's personal life.[20] On June 13, 2017, Michelle Monaghan was announced to return as Ethan Hunt's wife Julia Meade.[4]


Filming was slated to start in Paris on April 10.[21] Other locations include Britain, India, New Zealand and Norway.[22][23] Filming officially began on April 8, 2017.[24] Some of the filming was also taking place in New Zealand in July 2017.[25] The municipality of Forsand in Norway allowed the closing of Preikestolen for a time in autumn for the film's shoot; only crew members and cast were allowed to approach the mountain for nine consecutive days. They also were allowed up to 50 helicopter landings per day.[26] In August 2017, Cruise injured his right leg on the London set during filming.[27][28] Following his accident, the studio halted the production for at least nine weeks which would be taken to heal Cruise's broken ankle and other injuries, and released a statement saying that they would be keeping the July 2018 release date for the film.[29] Filming resumed in early October 2017, with Tom Cruise spotted on set seven weeks after his initial injury, and two weeks earlier than initially planned.[30] Reshoots for Cavill's Justice League coincided with the schedule for Fallout, for which he had grown a moustache which he was contracted to keep while filming, so Justice League's VFX team was forced to use special effects to digitally remove it in post-production.[31] On January 25, 2018, the title was revealed to be Mission: Impossible – Fallout.[32] Filming concluded on March 25, 2018 in United Arab Emirates.[33]


Mission: Impossible – Fallout is scheduled to be released on July 27, 2018, by Paramount Pictures in RealD 3D, IMAX and IMAX 3D.[34] The first trailer was released on February 4, 2018 during Super Bowl LII.[citation needed]
