American actor Tom Cruise is all set to restart filming for Mission Impossible 7, which was also one of the first films to postpone its shooting, due to the COVID-19 threats. A recent report revealed that Tom Cruise recently travelled to the UK via an 11-hour flight, to avoid the new quarantine rules imposed by the country.
The UK government has imposed a new rule this week, stating that people immigrating to the UK are now required to stay in quarantine for 14 days. According to a report in Republic World, a source revealed that it was no coincidence the filmmaker didn’t want the lead actor in quarantine for 2 weeks while they are getting ready to shoot for the upcoming Mission Impossible. Tom Cruise took the last-minute flight to the UK, just to reach in time on Sunday, before the restrictions were imposed.
Mission: Impossible 7 Shooting To Start Soon
The source also revealed that since there have been several delays to the film already, the makers are keen to restart the shooting as soon as possible.
