Tom Cruise can’t seem to catch a break as his highly anticipated Mission: Impossible film has hit another production snag. 

The eighth installment in the blockbuster franchise has been delayed once more, this time due to a malfunction involving a £23 million submarine used during filming.

The problem started when the gimbal, which is necessary to lower the 120-foot-tall tower, stuck under its own weight and needed to be repaired. This unforeseen issue has caused weeks’ worth of delays in the production schedule and a large rise in the expense of the movie.

The film, which was initially scheduled for release this summer, has already been rescheduled for May 2025. It’s unclear when the movie will be released in theaters after this most recent postponement.

Most of the new installment has been filmed in the UK at Longcross Studios, where Cruise has frequently been seen in character as the iconic agent Ethan Hunt.

In addition to Mission: Impossible, Cruise is also gearing up for another high-flying adventure with a new Top Gun sequel. This follows the massive box office success of Top Gun: Maverick, which grossed nearly $1.5 billion.
