Trying to make a film during this global health pandemic is no easy task. Actor Tom Cruise makes that clear in this profanity-filled tirade that was recorded on-set of his latest film.
In leaked audio acquired by The Sun, Tom Cruise is heard lying into the upcoming Mission: Impossible 7 film crew. Trying to keep the production afloat during this unsure time, reports say that Cruise is very tough when enforcing the rules set in place.
Trying to follow the strict rules in place that allow these movies to go into production, the actor and producer reportedly saw two crew members standing within two meters of each other and let loose in a fiery exchange. “If I see you do it again, you’re fucking gone. And if anyone in this crew does it, that’s it — and you too and you too,” Cruise yells in the leaked audio. “And you, don’t you ever fucking do it again.”
The two production members were standing less than a meter away from each other as the pair looked at something on a computer screen. That’s when Cruise spotted them and gave them his two cents about this situation. He did not hold back on the importance of these rules as well.
“They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us. We are creating thousands of jobs, you motherfuckers. That’s it. No apologies. You can tell it to the people that are losing their fucking homes because our industry is shut down. We are not shutting this fucking movie down. Is it understood? If I see it again, you’re fucking gone.”
Mission: Impossible 7 has run into a few delays due to the pandemic already. In October, 12 people who were on set in Italy were said to have tested positive. As per The Sun, around “150 extras were told not to come in to shoot scenes” while the production was in Venice as health chiefs traced positive tests back to them.
Cruise has reportedly paid nearly $700,000 for an old cruise ship, so the cast and crew could isolate on that.
Mission: Impossible 7 is set for release on November 19th, 2021, followed by Mission: Impossible 8 on November 4th, 2022. Featuring in the cast are returning series stars Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, and Henry Czerny, along with new additions Esai Morales (Titans), Hayley Atwell (Avengers: Endgame), Pom Klementieff (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2), and Shea Whigham (Boardwalk Empire).
