Tom Cruise risks life as Mission: Impossible 7 resumes filming. Wait, what?!

March 18th, 2020 by Marc Comments

While every movie and TV show on the planet seems to grinding to a halt due to that damned virus, Tom Cruise has not only decided he’s going to complete filming on Mission: Impossible 7 (yay!).

But not only is he risking it all (not really, calm down) to finish filming, but he’s decided that he wanted to risk his life right out of the stable…

New images have appeared online (below) from the filming in UK after filming being halted in Italy recently due to the outbreak.

While we admire Cruise’s dedication to the fans and the franchise, we hope he and the entire cast and crew are safe, given that the virus is running around England as it is over half the globe.

Mission: Impossible 7 is set for release on July 23rd 2021, followed by Mission: Impossible 8 on August 25th 2022. Featuring in the cast are returning stars Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames and Henry Czerny, along with new additions Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Dark Pheonix), Hayley Atwell (Avengers: Endgame), Pom Klementieff (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2), and Shea Whigham (Boardwalk Empire).

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
