It’s official – the next Mission Impossible film is titled Dead Reckoning Part One.
That’s right, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One is coming soon, IGN can confirm.
The full title of Tom Cruise’s next Mission Impossible was revealed at a panel during CinemaCon today in Las Vegas. A brief glimpse of the film featured horse chases, train fights, and even Ethan Hunt plummeting off a cliff on a motorbike.
Appearing from the set of Mission Impossible 7, Tom Cruise introduced the film’s first trailer while standing atop a mid-flight plane.
Typical Ethan Hunt.
The trailer itself depicts Cruise in one of his most dangerous stunts yet, launching a motorcycle off a cliff. And audiences at CinemaCon seemed pretty impressed. Other scenes depicted Ilsa (Rebecca Ferguson) with an eyepatch, as well as a fight scene on a train between Ilsa and the White Widow (Vanessa Kirby).
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One and Two are said to be a culmination of the film series. Originally reported to shoot back-to-back, Part Two was eventually shelved briefly due to scheduling conflicts. However, Part Two began filming shortly after production on Part One ended.
The upcoming Mission: Impossible sequel also marks the return of Henry Czerny as Eugene Kittridge – the former head of the IMF last seen in the original Mission: Impossible film.
