The release of Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 2 has been pushed back to 2025, along with new dates for A Quiet Place prequel.
Tom Cruise was in the middle of production on the next Mission: Impossible movie, when it was forced to shut down due to the SAG-AFTRA strike. The sequel was slated to hit theaters next summer, so it should come as no surprise that Paramount has pushed the release of to 2025.
To note, the film no longer carries the Dead Reckoning – Part 2 subtitle, with a new title to be released shortly. The next Mission Impossible movie was originally scheduled for June 28, 2024, but that release has been delayed to May 23, 2025. Paramount also shuffled the dates of several of its other movies around, with A Quiet Place: Day One moving from March 8, 2024 to June 28, 2024. The studio also bumped a new Spongebob Squarepants movie from May 23, 2025 to December 19, 2025.
The SAG-AFTRA strike has now reached the 100-day mark, but talks with the AMPTP are expected to resume on Tuesday. Hopefully, a fair deal can be reached, and everyone will be able to get back to work. However, if the strike isn’t resolved, we can expect to see the release of more movies pushed back.
In Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team embark on their most dangerous mission yet: To track down a terrifying new weapon that threatens all of humanity before it falls into the wrong hands. With control of the future and the fate of the world at stake, and dark forces from Ethan’s past closing in, a deadly race around the globe begins. Confronted by a mysterious, all-powerful enemy, Ethan is forced to consider that nothing can matter more than his mission – not even the lives of those he cares about most.
