A furious Tom Cruise berated crew members on the set of Mission: Impossible 7, warning that they’ll be “f****** gone” if they’re caught breaking COVID-19 protocol.
The Hollywood actor flew into a rage after reportedly spotting two crew members failing to socially distance from one another. Insiders say Cruise was furious at his staff for risking all of his efforts to keep filming going as the coronavirus pandemic continues to impact the industry.
“They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us!” Cruise said. “Because they believe in us and what we’re doing! I’m on the phone with every f****** studio at night, insurance companies, producers, and they’re looking at us and using us to make their movies. We are creating thousands of jobs you motherf******.”
The coronavirus pandemic has already caused the latest installment of the film franchise to experience delays. Cruise held crisis talks with the film’s director after 12 people tested positive for the virus, causing 150 extras to not shoot their scenes in Italy. Since returning to the United Kingdom for more filming, the actor has tried to ensure there are no more delays. He even paid over half a million dollars for an old cruise ship for the cast and crew to isolate on.
