It looks like Tom Cruise can go to any length to complete his movie shooting. After the infamous rant at the set of Mission Impossible 7, he is doing every bit to ensure it doesn’t happen anymore.
Reportedly, the legendary actor bought two state-of-the-art robots to patrol the set of Mission Impossible 7 when filming resumes this week. He invested huge money to own the gadgets that help administer on-the-spot tests to staff. A film-set source said, “Shooting for it will resume in the UK later this week before it goes off to Dubai. Tom is so serious about making sure the shoot isn’t shut down that he’s splashed out on these robots as he can’t be everywhere to ensure people are behaving themselves.”
The source added, “Yes, the rant that came out last month may have been a bit over the top, but he was right, and those who saw the story sympathised with him.” The source revealed, “The robots are really sophisticated and rather intimidating. It’s like the Terminator only not as violent.”
The incident that trigged all these happened a month back on the sets of the movie. Two crew members allegedly violated the COVID-19 protocols and Tom Cruise lost him calm. He was heard yelling at them in an audio clip released by The Sun.“If I see you do it again, you’re f***ing gone.”
The film shooting had been disrupted multiple times during pandemic. Last year two staff had infected with the virus while they were in Venice. The shotting had to be postponed followed by international lockdowns.
The source opined, “He gets paid a lot for these films but he also knows that he is lucky to be working and staff on the film from top to bottom rely on this film going ahead. You don’t have to go far to see how just how much the pandemic has affected jobs.”
