It is no secret that Tom Cruise films his own stunts – particularly for the Mission Impossible franchise. From underwater scenes, motorbike chases, skydiving and perhaps his most famous, hanging off a plane, there is nothing the actor won’t do. Back in February, production for the upcoming Mission Impossible 7 film was halted due to the first wave of coronavirus in Italy. Now, the crew have returned, heading to Norway to continue filming.
This next instalment appears to be no different for Cruise as he cheats death in a stunt, spotted by onlookers. From the top of Helsetkopen mountain near Hellesylt in Norway, the 58-year-old is seen riding a motorcycle off a steep ramp before parachuting safely to the ground. It is reported he completed the jump four times.
The actor was spotted filming a similar stunt in the UK, following reports that production would face another delay after a stuntman’s bike exploded while filming.
“Terrified” of further delays, a source told The Sun, Cruise has hired a $900,000 cruise ship for the cast and crew of the movie. “Tom is determined not to see any more hold-ups. The studio believes it will keep everyone safe and get this shoot wrapped up.”
The film will star Cruise alongside Rebecca Ferguson, Nicholas Hoult, Hayley Atwell, Simon Pegg and others, and is slated for release in November 2021.
