In Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol, we saw Jeremy Renner as William Brandt, alongside Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton, Michael Nyqvist, Anil Kapoor, and Léa Seydoux.
As the other mentioned cast keeps reappearing in the franchise but the fans still await a single glance of their favorite Jeremy Renner.
The movie came out in 2011 and now when everyone is inside their homes in 2020. The fans have nothing to thing about but their favourite actors and their absence from the favourite series.
Well, we all know Tom Cruise and his obsession with perfection. He is well known for his action in the movies, and he even performs his stunts all by himself. Well, he was supposed to start the shoot for Mission: Impossible 7, but because of the pandemic, he couldn’t.
Tom Cruise isn’t the one who would sit at home idle during the quarantine. While we all are getting bored and struggling to look for a hobby, Cruise has been working for the jam-packed action!
Is Tom Cruise resting in this period?
As per the latest reports, Cruise is making the most of this quarantine period. He has rented a piece of land in Oxfordshire from a farmer. And he is using all his time in training for his action sequences in the upcoming movie. He has been riding bikes and helicopters to prepare himself.
Earlier this month, he was riding on his red motorbike at various places. And he has had his pilot license since 1994, and he is refreshing himself for the role.
Why is Jeremy Renner not coming back to the franchise?
When Jeremy came into the series, he was commonly known as a character actor with two Oscar nominations to his name. Also, a charismatic future ahead of him as he was going to play Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Renner signed to the top named franchises in the industry making smart moves out of his popularity.
As, at the time, The Avengers was still a year away, so it looked as if everything would work out smoothly.
Director Christopher McQuarrie explained the situation:
“Jeremy had his commitment to Avengers, which ironically they ended up not exercising, and we didn’t know what the [sixth Mission: Impossible] movie was, so we couldn’t provide a schedule. We needed absolute freedom. The unfortunate thing for Jeremy is that he got busy in this perfect storm of, one can’t use you and one doesn’t know how to, given the massive complications they had with Avengers.”
Tom Cruise Got Special Permission To Shoot Within Quarantine Period?
However, we don’t know when the shoot for Mission: Impossible 7 will resume. But the team has received special permission from Oliver Dowden, Britain’s Culture Secretary, to shoot.
The crew has a special authority which allows them to avoid the 14 day isolation period.
Also, some reports even suggest that Cruise is working with the UK government to ensure the safety of his team during the shoot.
Anyway, Mission: Impossible 7 first started the shoot in Italy in February this year.
But as the situation deteriorated, the shoot became impossible. Also, the team had to withdraw.
Fomr there they went to Surrey, but then in March, productions came to a stop.
As of now, Mission: Impossible 7 is going to release on November 19, 2021.
Let’s just hope we will see our favourite Jeremy Renner again in this franchise.
