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. However, in February 2021, 'Deadline Hollywood' revealed that Paramount had decided to no longer move forward with that plan. In February, Ferguson confirmed her return for the seventh installment, while Hayley Atwell and Pom Klementieff joined the film's cast in September. In December, Simon Pegg confirmed his return for the film, while Shea Whigham was also cast.

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. Vanessa Kirby also announced she was returning for both films. However, due to scheduling conflicts, Hoult was replaced by Esai Morales for both films.

In February 2021, 'Deadline Hollywood' reported that the film will no longer be filmed back-to-back with 'Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part One'. In November, the director was reportedly in the process of rewriting the film, and filming began shortly after production wrapped on the seventh film. It was reported in February 2022 that the seventh and eighth films will be a send-off to Ethan Hunt.

On March 24, 2022, 'Collider' reported the beginning of filming 'Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part Two'. In July 2022, it was reported that Holt McCallany had joined the cast. In August, it was revealed Nick Offerman and Janet McTeer were also added to the cast.


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