Tom Cruise is currently busy prepping for part 2 of Mission: Impossible: Dead Reckoning. We all know how dedicated the Hollywood star is when it comes to action sequences for his movies. The actor keeps facing setbacks every now and then and the same happened recently when Mission: Impossible 8 had to be stalled due to an unexpected snag.

The loyal fans have been eagerly waiting for next chapter in Ethan Hunt’s story, Mission: Impossible 8 but according to The Mirror, Tom Cruise had to stall the shoot after a submarine malfunctioned.

Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible 8 Delayed

According to the Hollywood publication, a source spilled the beans on the delay saying, “They’re not happy as it puts production behind, which costs a lot of money per day.” But what really happened? Well, reports indicate that the equipment used to lower the 120-foot-high structure jammed under its weight, resulting in damage.

Repairs are currently underway, causing weeks of delay and increased costs. The malfunction has cost Tom Cruise a whopping 250 crore. The submarine in question was featured in the last Mission: Impossible film during an explosion scene where it sank. The sequel revisits the submarine 10 years later. However, production encountered problems when adding fittings and stairwells to the subshell, which couldn’t support the weight.

The highly anticipated 8th installment’s production had previously been interrupted by the global Covid-19 pandemic and last year’s WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Initially set for release this summer, the film has now been delayed to May 2025, with the exact release date still unknown.
