Tom Cruise is said to be in a stalemate with Paramount Pictures over the distribution of "Mission: Impossible 7."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the "Top Gun: Maverick" lead isn’t happy that the studio is setting a 45-day theatrical window for the rollout of "M:I7" before the title lands on Paramount+, a decision that came amid numerous production delays related to COVID-19 that have stifled the film schedule, per multiple industry insiders the publication spoke to.
Given that he typically brings in a sizable return for studio productions, Cruise is looking for "M:I7" to be released through a more traditional model of a three-month window.
Cruise has reportedly retained lawyers to negotiate with Paramount while the film remains in production.
