Actor Tom Cruise has resumed the shooting for Mission Impossible 7 in Venice. He is currently busy with the action scenes.
The actor was seen running through the streets of Venice in one of the scenes from the film. He was also captured, keeping himself safe from the virus. He protected his face with a mask consisting of two protective layers.
Tom Cruise working hard on the next Mission Impossible
The production of the project was delayed after the pandemic hit the filmmaking. Around 12 people on the set were found COVID-19 positive a few days ago.
Europe faced the second wave of Coronavirus recently, and it affected many countries. Italy also saw strict limitations once again after many new cases emerged.
However, all these obstacles didn’t affect the team of the movie very much. And now they are all back to work. Mission Impossible 7 sees the comeback of director Christopher McQuarrie after the fifth and sixth parts.
The cast includes Tom Cruise, of course, reprising his Ethan Hunt’s iconic character. Along with him, there’s also Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames as Benji and Luther.
COVID-19 delaying big-budget movie titles
The crisis phase is causing a lot of shifts and changes to big productions. Many anticipated films are facing long delays now.
Titles like No Time To Die are already moved to April next year. It was scheduled to arrive this month previously.
Warner Bros’ Dune and superhero films like DC’s The Batman and Wonder Woman 1984 also saw a big delay. Robert Pattinson was initially tested positive, and then the film shoot stopped. Fortunately, he recovered, and now the production is going on again.
On the other hand, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman‘s next part is already a year late. And it seems unlikely to see it next month either. Director Patty Jenkins has already expressed her concern over this. But nothing is possible to do right now apart from delaying the movie.
Coming back to MI 7, the Tom Cruise movie’s highly awaited next part will be released in November 2021.
