The robots, which Cruise paid for out of his own pocket, will test the film crew for the coronavirus as well as keep a social distance.
Tom Cruise is so concerned about safety rules on the set of “Mission Impossible 7” that he bought two robots to make sure crew members maintain social distance. The robots, which Cruise paid for out of his own pocket, also test the crew for the presence of the coronavirus.
These are not all the measures the 58-year-old Cruise has taken to resume filming, which was suspended last winter because of the coronavirus pandemic. The actor spent several million dollars to rent a former military base on the outskirts of London, where the film is currently being filmed. In the future, the film crew will move to Dubai. Filming of the adventure thriller also took place in Italy and Norway.
Work on the film managed to resume under strict security protocols, so it is not surprising that Cruise is so serious about compliance with security measures. In December, an audio recording was leaked online in which Cruise reprimanded the crew when he noticed that some crew members were standing too close to each other. “If I see that one more time, you’re all fired,” Cruz said, not shy in his language. — I don’t want to see that again!”
Work, but on the personal life of the actor also finds time. His partner Hayley Atwell, famous for her role as Peggy Carter in the Marvel superhero movies, has become Cruise’s girlfriend. According to an insider, the actors bonded amid quarantine restrictions: “They found common ground quickly, even from the first day they met. The pandemic brought them closer together. They met after work and became almost inseparable. Hayley was at Tom’s apartment in London. They get along great and seem very happy.
The film is scheduled to premiere on November 19, 2021. In addition to Cruise and Atwell, Rebecca Ferguson and Nicholas Holt will play the lead roles. The director will be Christopher McQuarrie, who directed the previous two parts of the franchise.
