Tom Cruise’s star cast in “Mission: Impossible 8” continues to grow as actor Tramell Tillman joins the Mission Impossible franchise. Tillman is prominently known for his breakout role in the popular Apple series “Severance.” He even earned SAG and Spirit Award nominations for his performance in the series, which also starred  Adam Scott, Patricia Arquette, and John Turturro. Tillman’s other acting credits include Dietland, Godfather of Harlem, and Hunters.

Now, Tillman is all set to join the action thriller franchise “Mission: Impossible.” He will be seen in the eighth installment of the series, which also includes Katy O’Brian, Nick Offerman, and Hannah Waddingham, as well as returning Mission veterans Henry Czerny, Hayley Atwell, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Pom Klementieff, and Vanessa Kirby.

As of now, the plot details and Tillman’s role in the movie are being kept under wraps.

What can be expected from the Mission Impossible 8?

Tom Cruise is producing the film for Paramount and Skydance, with Christopher McQuarrie directing and writing. Executive producers include David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Don Granger, and Chris Brock. In January 2019, Cruise announced that the seventh and eighth Mission: Impossible films would be shot back-to-back. However, the plans for the film were rescheduled for  February 2021.

Shooting of the film began in March 2022 in the United Kingdom and included other locations such as Malta, South Africa, and Norway. The release date for the sequel was moved from June 28, 2024, to May 23, 2025. The main reason for the film delay was the SAG-AFTRA strike. Cruise and his team promoting the release of “Dead Reckoning Part One” during the summer also played a part.

The eighth installment of the franchise will have a three-week run in IMAX and will be filmed using IMAX digital cameras for the digital format. In contrast, “Dead Reckoning Part One” only had a one-week run in IMAX due to “Oppenheimer” opening the following week with a guaranteed three-week run in the format.

Mission: Impossible—Dead Reckoning Part One concluded with a major cliffhanger, suggesting that Ethan Hunt and his team are embarking on one of their most dangerous missions. They have yet to pursue, find, and destroy The Entity. Now, the eighth installment will pick up the story where it left off.

Behind-the-scenes shots suggest that Mission: Impossible 8 will have intense action scenes, just like previous films. It’s likely not the last movie in the series, as director McQuarrie has indicated there might be a ninth film in the future.

The untitled eighth Mission: Impossible film is scheduled for release in the United States on May 23, 2025.
