Tom Cruise, who’s known for his death-defying stunts and his young spirit, will not be young anymore. Yes, Tom Cruise will be 60 years old in Mission Impossible 8. We wonder if he’ll still be able to jump off a plane or a building.
Don’t be surprised, no one has ever been able to guess the age of the character Tom Cruise is playing by looking at him. Even if you know, you won’t believe it. But the truth is that Tom Cruise will be 60 years old in Mission Impossible 8.
Not only that the actor’s age will be 60 when MI8 will come out, but also that the actor will be playing almost a 60-year-old Ethan Hunt in the movie. Can you imagine Ethan Hunt jumping off the helicopter, or clung outside to a plane taking off, at the age of 60? Or, can you imagine Tom Cruise pulling off all those stunts by himself, at an age when most of the actors can’t even keep up with the filming schedules?
- What! Tom Cruise will be 60 years old in Mission Impossible 8.
- Mission Impossible 7&8 delayed.
- Tom Cruise will have played Ethan Hunt for over a quarter-of-a-century.
What! Tom Cruise will be 60 years old in Mission Impossible 8.
Yes, this is going to be true looking at the updated schedules of Mission Impossible 7 & Mission Impossible 8. Tom Cruise was born in the July of 1962, which makes him 57-year-old as of now. No one can believe it, but the man you saw crashing a helicopter in the Himalayas while chasing another in Mission Impossible Fallout was 55 years old then.
And now when you will see him flying a super hornet in Top Gun Maverick, he will be 57-year-old. And by the time the next Mission Impossible will release, he will be almost 60. Not only Tom Cruise will touch the mark of 60, but even the character he plays, Ethan Hunt, who was born in 1964 as per the timeline of Mission Impossible, will be around 60 years old. We wonder what Tom Cruise will pull off when he will be 60 years old in Mission Impossible 8.
Tom Cruise will be 60 years old in Mission Impossible 8 due to the delay.
Mission Impossible 7 was scheduled to hit the theatres on 23rd July 2021, and Mission Impossible 8 was to release on 5th August 2022. However, things aren’t going well for the industry due to the global lockdown. Mission Impossible 7 & 8, directed by Christopher McQuarrie, were to shot one after another.
The shooting of Mission Impossible 7 was due for some major action sequence in Italy. Just when Tom Cruise was to begin the shooting in Venice, the country announced nationwide lockdown amid the pandemic. Since then, the filming of Mission Impossible 7 is halted, and no one knows when it will get back on track. Considering the delay, the studio has pushed the release date forward to 19th November 2021 for MI7, and 4th November 2020 for MI 8.
There are chances that the dates can be pushed further. As the movie is going to release by the end of 2022, or probably in 2023, then Tom Cruise will surely hit the milestone of being old officially. Tom Cruise will be 60 years old in Mission Impossible 8, and we still won’t be able to stop dreaming about him.
Tom Cruise will have played Ethan Hunt for over a quarter-of-a-century.
Mission: Impossible, directed by Brian De Palma, was the first movie starring Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt. It was 1996 when the movie was released. Now, by the time Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible: 8 will hit the theatres, it will be over 25 years for him playing Ethan Hunt.
By the time, Tom Cruise will have played Ethan Hunt in 8 movies spanning over a quarter-of-a-century. We wish Tom Cruise continues playing Ethan Hunt for a century more, as he is immortal, but even the 25 years is an achievement and his gift to his fans.
