Last December from the set of Mission: Impossible leaked some audio to say the least thunderous in which you could hear Tom Cruise squeezing deeply against some members of his crew, guilty of having taken the new anti-covid regulations lightly.
During a new interview with Empire magazine, the actor – who recently returned his three Golden Globes to give a boost to the well-known protest against the HPFA underway right now – has commented on the unpleasant story for the first time, which a few months ago had earned the front pages of all the specialized newspapers.
“Making a film can become a fraught, irritating and personal journey“Cruise said.”I said what I said. At that point, a new wave of cases was taking place in England as well. And the stakes were very high. But those words weren’t addressed to my entire crew. I’ve asked some to leave the set, only to certain individuals. And the wonderful thing was that we didn’t have any more interruptions, and here we are, still at work: we are continuing to film.“.
Tom Cruise also added that avoiding further interruptions and returning to filming was a huge relief for him: “All those emotions were running through my mind“he said.”And for the whole crew to know that we had started shooting a film was a huge relief … it was very emotional.“
Recall that, in addition to Tom Cruise, Mission: Impossible 7 will also include Hayley Atwell, Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Vanessa Kirby and Henry Czerny, as well as Shea Whigham, Pom Klementieff and Esai Morales. The release date is set for May 2022.
