Tom Cruise To Retire From Mission: Impossible After Eighth Film

By the time the still-untitled eighth installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise hits theaters in 2022, star Tom Cruise will have been playing Ethan Hunt on the big screen for 26 years. That’s incredible staying power for a franchise in modern day Hollywood, especially when you consider the sheer number of big name properties that have been rebooted multiple times during that period. Put it this way; when the first Mission started filming, Val Kilmer was Batman.

Not only has the espionage series shown impressive longevity, but Mission: Impossible is now arguably more popular than it’s ever been. After struggling to maintain an identity over the first three installments, Brad Bird’s Ghost Protocol and Christopher McQuarrie’s continued work on the brand have established Cruise’s signature style of high-octane stunts and face-swapping technology as one of the most critically-acclaimed action franchises in the business today.
