The title of the long-overdue seventh instalment in the Tom Cruise action series Mission: Impossible has been revealed, and it’s Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1.

So, considering that, and with the eighth outing already already filming, we’d hazard a guess that the next one’s going to be Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 2. Hey, call us psychic!

Christopher McQuarrie returns to both the writing and directing chairs for the pair of new action-fests, while rejoining Cruise – who once again performs several insane stunts – will be series regulars Henry Czerny, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames and Frederick Schmidt.

Names who are new to the Mission: Impossible fray include Hayley Atwell, Rob Delaney, Cary Elwes, Mark Gatiss, Pom Klementieff, Esai Morales, Charles Parnell, Greg Tarzan Davis, Indira Varma and Shea Whigham.

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1 is scheduled to hit Australian cinemas on July 13, 2023, with the eighth outing currently slated for June, 2024.
