Tom Cruise lights the fuse on two new Mission: Impossible movies

Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie will follow the smash hit Fallout with two films shot back to back.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to look forward to not one but two new Mission: Impossible movies.

Tom Cruise has confirmed that the seventh and eighth films in the stunt-packed action series will be released in summer 2021 and summer 2022. By that time, he'll be just a year shy of his 60th birthday -- but that probably won't stop him pulling off more outrageous stunts.

Cruise will shoot Mission: Impossible 7 and 8 back to back with director Christopher McQuarrie. McQuarrie also directed the last two entries, 2015's Rogue Nation and 2018's Fallout, which was acclaimed by critics and fans with a Metacritic score of 86 and the highest box office in the franchise's history.

Before stepping back into the M:I series, Cruise will return to another earlier hit for high-flying sequel Top Gun: Maverick in 2020.
