Mission Impossible 7 production resumes in UK
The movie is set to release on July 23, 2021.
The coronavirus pandemic hit Italy the hardest after China. Altogether, the country has reported 32,000 cases and 2,500 deaths as of March 17. Mission Impossible 7 was filming in Venice, Italy a week ago. Apparently, they were shooting opening sequences before moving on to Rome. However, production was cut short because of the coronavirus outbreak. And now, the studio has decided to resume production in the UK.
Mission Impossible production begins in Surrey
Tom Cruise is back in action at a studio in Surrey, UK. The new set features a replica of the Trinita Dei Monti church in Rome. It will include the iconic 136 Spanish Steps.
The actor was due to film at one of the most picturesque spots in Italy. However, the pandemic abrupted the production of Mission Impossible 7. Even though the movie is set to release next year, some say it is too soon to resume production. An insider for the studio has said that:
There are literally hundreds of crew and some of the world’s biggest stars including Tom Cruise on standby waiting to get started, and it’s simply infeasible to delay it indefinitely. But it goes without saying nobody is going to risk sending a large crew back to Italy at the moment or for the foreseeable, so they’ve had to come up with a contingency to keep things moving.
Actor Simon Pegg went on to say that it would be indelicate to complain about anything other than the fact that there was a lot of disruption for everyone.
Tom Cruise performs his stunts, as always
The entire cast is back in its form and Tom Cruise has already started shooting his stunt scenes. Cruise was performing a wheelie in protective gear.
It seems that the Mission Impossible franchise will continue its routine of daredevil stunts. Other stunt scenes involved helicopters, planes, and minivans. Actress Rebecca Ferguson was also present on set.
