Actor Nicholas Houltwas forced to exit the film Mission Impossible 7 and has been replaced by the versatile actor Esai Morales. The former had to bow out of the next instalment of the film due to his prior commitments. It seems that his schedule has projects contradicting with each other.
Nicholas was supposed to be showcased as the villain in the next film opposite Tom Cruise in the much-awaited film of the Hollywood industry. However, he has now been replaced by Esai Morales due to conflicting projects with the same dates.
The film, which was to mark the return of Tom Cruise in the role of Ethan Hunt was supposed to be filmed in Venice and according to the official sources they will continue the shoot after the global pandemic comes to rest.
It was very unclear as to what is the schedule of the film and when will the project resume. Hoult will not be able to be a part of this film because he had prior commitments with web series of comedy genres titled “The Great”. It was only because of the overlapping of both the projects that he had to leave the film abruptly.
Paramount Pictures has decided to push the slated date of the film of the next sequel and the makers have confirmed the date November 19, 2021, whereas the eighth instalment of the film will be released on November 4, 2022.
All the release dates of several films in the Hollywood industry have been pushed ahead. Meanwhile, some of the filmmakers have decided to go for the OTT giant platforms concerning the ground situation caused by the pandemic.
It is pretty obvious that the situation will not become normal in the recent future and it will take months. If filmmakers keep pushing their release dates and schedules then the fans will go crazy amid the lockdown in their countries. However, it seems like they too have no good option.
Christopher McQuarrie will be penning down and directing both the film and will be shot at once after the madness of the pandemic comes to an end. For the film Mission Impossible 7, the star cast will be Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Henry Czerny, and Vanessa Kirby.
The Hollywood actors have already signed for the film and the new actors who will be joining the film are Hayley Atwell, Shea Whigham and Pom Klementieff.
Recently, Nicholas Hoult took to his Instagram handle to upload his video with a shotgun and captioned it as “Getting my John Wick on”. It is extremely sad that the actor has to part ways from the Mission Impossible seventh and eighth instalment however, that is the best he can do, due to his prior commitments.
As of now there has not been any official news revealed as to when the filming of the film will begin but with the current situation it looks like it will not start any time before December.
