Tom Cruise on Mission: Impossible 7
While speaking to Empire, Tom Cruise has opened up about the experience of shooting the seventh season, the most iconic action-spy-thriller series during Covid-19. These movies are big-scale with intense practical effects and deadly stunts, they are set in multiple countries.
Cruise told Empire, “I’ve produced 30 to 40 movies. I am responsible for thousands, if not tens of thousands, of jobs. All my friends in the industry, people that are in distribution, and my crew were like, ‘What are we going to do? I could lose my house!’ So I told the studio and I told the industry, ‘We’re going back. We’re going to get everyone back to work. We’re going to start shooting in the summer. And we’re going to figure out how to do it safely.’”
Cruise added, “It was seven days a week, it was around the clock, just dealing with a lot of high emotions with people, and helping them through it,” Cruise says. There was social distancing, there were masks, there were bubbles of crew members – one make-up artist for every two actors, plus heads of departments staying in hotel rooms on their own, driving to set, shooting the scene, and then returning to the hotel until needed – and pods of five people, ready to quarantine if anyone within one contracted the virus.”
