It will be another year before a new Mission: Impossible movie hits theatres.

Paramount Pictures and Skydance announced Friday (Jan 21) that the release of Mission: Impossible 7 will be pushed from Sept 20 to July 14, 2023. Mission: Impossible 8, previously set for July 2023, will instead open June 28, 2024.

It's the latest setback for a pair of blockbusters that have been much-delayed by the pandemic. Shooting on Mission: Impossible 7 was put on hiatus in early 2020 because of Covid-19. After filming resumed in the summer of 2020, principal photography ultimately concluded by September 2021.

Paramount and Skydance attributed the postponements to pandemic-related delays.

"After thoughtful consideration, Paramount Pictures and Skydance have decided to postpone the release dates for Mission: Impossible 7 & 8 in response to delays due to the ongoing pandemic," said the film companies in a joint statement. – AP
