Mission: Impossible 7 & 8 to film in the UK
The next two films in the Mission: Impossible franchise are set to film in the UK.
The features will shoot back-to-back next year with Christopher McQuarrie returning to write and direct both.
Tom Cruise and Rebecca Ferguson are also lined up to return as leads, with Hayley Atwell among those joining the cast this time around.
The films have been massive hits for Cruise and, more recently, McQuarrie, with the first in 1996 set six years after the previous TV sequel series.
The Paramount franchise of six films to date has grossed more than $3.5bn worldwide, and is famous for its use of sweeping global locations and Cruise’s dangerous stunts.
