Tom Cruise Goes Insane On Film Crew Of Mission Impossible 7 After They Fail To Follow COVID Protocol
Too many Hollywood productions have suffered from the wrath of this pandemic know as Covid19. 2020 alone has shut down more filming and pushed back more schedules then one could count on one hand, so it was no surprise when we found out that one of Hollywood's biggest names had to put his foot down while on set of one of 2021's biggest blockbusters.
Deadline reports, Tom Cruise was caught in an audiotape unloading on the crew of the London set of Mission: Impossible 7, and it sounds like his ire is well placed.
London paper The Sun has posted audio — listen here — of a tirade directed at the crew after he noticed lapses in social distancing protocols that were put in place to make one of the first blockbusters to resume production during the pandemic. In this case, Cruise, also the film’s producer, helped develop the protocols meant to get the film through production that spanned from Italy to Norway and London. It is a massive undertaking, and there were reports of Covid issues during the Italy leg of the shoot, which reportedly shut the film down for a couple of days.
Cruise told the crew that if the behavior is repeated, those who are caught would be fired. He is very emotional in delivering the message, telling the crew that the industry is hurting, and most of the industry shut down, and that people are losing their homes as a result.
Seeing this movie through to completion has been something of a mission for Cruise, who pushed to get back into production and who, behind the scenes, has used his time to advise other productions and studios on how they might also navigate in perilous times during the coronavirus pandemic.
It is great to see key players in the film making industry doing what they can to keep the industry safe and afloat. Tell us what you think. Was Tom Justified in his behavior?
