Filming began last April and now, ten months later, production has FINALLY wrapped on “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” the sixth film in the action thriller series.
Director Chris McQuarrie posted a photo from the end of filming along with the caption that says the wrap comes after “3000 setups, 13 helicopters, 6 pregnancies, 5 hiatuses, 4 weeks of aerial photography, 3 continents, 2 winters, and 1 broken ankle.”
Star Tom Cruise’s ankle injury in August effectively shut down the production for two months, which is why this hasn’t wrapped sooner, though the time allowed McQuarrie to get to work on some of the post-production on the film early – meaning this will go through post much faster than other films of this size. It will have to though in order to make its late July release around much of the world.
A splinter unit will continue filming a stunt sequence for the next several days, but no principal cast members are expected to be involved.
