Clearly, the “Mission Impossible” film series seems cursed and lives up to its name rather aptly… While the last opus of the saga, “Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning”, experienced several filming postponements following the Covid crisis, here you go that the new part is also put on pause, reports The Mirror.

This time, the fault could be attributed to… a submarine. Indeed, scenes from the film were filmed in a submarine worth 27 million euros, but the device experienced “a malfunction”. Production would have liked to add equipment to the submarine, but the structure of the submersible did not hold up. According to the British tabloids, the submarine’s gimbal (or pendulum) – which measures 36 meters long – bent under its weight and therefore had to be repaired.

Repairs are reportedly in progress, and this therefore causes filming to be paused. We are talking about “several weeks” of delay, and above all, a big increase in the production costs of the film. And the postponement of filming “costs a lot of money per day”, explained a Source to the Mirror, testifying to the dissatisfaction of the producers of “Mission Impossible 8”. Indeed, among other things, it is necessary to pay the film crews during this interruption.

The Daily Mail puts the budget of the film in which Tom Cruise is the main actor at more than 400 million dollars.

One thing is almost certain: the eighth opus of the saga should not be released this summer, as initially planned. Rumors currently speak of a May 2025 release.
