Nicholas Cage Confirms Mission Impossible 7 Exit

In January of this year, it was announced that the star of X-Men: First Class (2011) and Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) would play the villain in future installments of the famed action-espionage franchise.

However, this week news arrives that Nicholas Hoult will finally not participate, for the time being, in Mission Impossible 7 due to scheduling problems.

The current disagreement between the times of production and the availability of the British – cause of his resignation – is not entirely unexpected.

Like all the major filming scheduled for the first half of 2020, Mission Impossible had to be suspended until further notice.

Filming was slated to begin in February, but the pandemic prompted Paramount Pictures to cancel those initial plans and so far there are no tentative dates to reopen the sets.

Such uncertainty, for now, has already resulted in the desertion of Nicholas Hoult to play the antagonist who turns Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and the rest of his team upside down.

As a replacement for the 30-year-old histrion, according to THR, the New Yorker Esai Morales has already been signed.

With a trajectory of almost four decades, Morales has excelled in television series such as NYPD Blue, How to Get Away with Murder, and Titans.

About the character he will play in the upcoming installment Mission: Impossible – beyond knowing that he will be the bad guy in the story – there are no further details.

Inside the cast, the return of Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Vanessa Kirby, Ving Rhames, and Henry Czerny, who has not been in the franchise since 1996 (in the role of Eugene Kittridge, former director of the Impossible Missions Force), has already been confirmed.

New faces for Mission Impossible 7 include Hayley Atwell ( Captain America: The First Avenger ), Pom Klementieff ( Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ), and Shea Whigham ( Joker ).

Directed by Christopher Mc Quarrie – the only filmmaker to have conceived more than one film in the series – Mission: Impossible 7 will hit theaters on November 19, 2021. A sequel, also directed by Mc Quarrie, will premiere on November 4, 2022.
