Tom has been spotted filming lots of exciting scenes in the last few months, including taking on motorbike jumps and parachuting. 

After production for Mission Impossible 7 was moved to Norway, it was reported that Cruise hired a £500,000 ship for the film’s crew to avoid any coronavirus-related delays.

Filming was already delayed for five months after COVID-19 spread across Italy, where production had been based in March, leading the release date to be pushed back to November 2021.

During the call, the minister told how Norway is ‘looking forward to having [Tom] back’ and insisted how the Hollywood star and crew are allowed to shoot in the country without having to quarantine at home first, Norwegian publication VG reported.  

However, cast and crew had to pass two tests for coronavirus within 48 hours of landing in Norway and a series of daily rigorous health checks were in place.

Abid added that the film production team wouldn’t not have contact with anyone that is not part of the set.

The films focus on agent Ethan and will be directed by Christopher McQuarrie, who previously worked on 2015’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and Mission: Impossible – Fallout in 2018.
