The cast of Mission Impossible is reportedly living in fear after Tom Cruise’s explosive on-set banter. Tom had yelled at crew members for breaking COVID-19 protocols of maintaining social distance.
The actor had threatened the crew members as the audio of his banter was leaked online. He had created a divide between people on social media after his outrage in spotting members of the crew on the set standing too close than two meters apart.
The actor threatened to fire the members if they do not follow the coronavirus safety protocols. He told the crew that the entire Hollywood industry was watching how his new movie was being made in order to replicate the safety rules of their own.
Now the crew is said to be in fear of further explosive outbursts from the actor. They are reportedly tip-toeing around the set. There was also news that some of the crew members had already quit in protest over the actor’s anger.
A source revealed that they believed it had a lot to do with his ego. The source added that keeping aside good intentions, he did not need to rant and rave the way he did. They also revealed that the crew members are “walking on eggshells” since Tom’s outburst.
The source adds: “According to him, there’s no margin for error, especially when so many other productions have been shut down.” The upcoming installment of the hit franchise is being filmed in the UK and Europe throughout the pandemic. Many other productions have already completed their work despite the challenges added on by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The Internet Divided Over Tom’s Outburst
Tom’s outburst sparked a backlash as some fans compared his “toxic” outburst to the alleged behavior of Ellen DeGeneres. Leah Remini, actress and Scientology survivor also accused the actor of being “abusive”.
Tom Cruise gave a piece of his mind to the Mission Impossible crew members after he caught them breaking the UK Covid rules on set. According to the reports, he gave an X-rated dressing down to the members.
The actor has reportedly scolded the workers who did not follow the social distancing rules while filming for the upcoming Warner Bros. Studios. He told the crew members, “If I see you doing it again, you’re f****ing gone”. The Sun reported that his dressing-down was audiotaped and he was heard saying that if anyone in the crew does that then that it is.
The actor further said, “And you, don’t you ever f***ing do it again. We are not shutting this f***ing movie down.’ He was triggered when he saw the crew members stood less than a meter away from each other at a computer screen. The filming of the upcoming Misson Impossible movie has been going on for a while.
The actor was seen filming in Rome for his latest venture. He will be reprising his role as the American secret agent, Ethan Hunt. The actor was spotted last month behind the wheel of a vintage yellow Fiat 500 in the Italian Capital as he was preparing for his scenes.
Tom was also seen attempting to drive his small vehicle down a wide city boulevard. In the past few weeks, the actor has been spotted shooting a number of scenes for Mission Impossible 7. The filming has also taken place in Venice, Britain, and Norway. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the filming has been delayed several times.
Tom Looking Out For Rule-Breakers
According to reports, a number of scenes were to be filmed in Italy which has been the center of the world’s pandemic. The actor had held a crisis talk with director Christopher McQuarrie after 12 people on set tested positive for COVID-19. According to further reports, 150 extras for the film were informed not to come in for shooting.
However, they were not given any official reason for the decision. It is suggested that there were coronavirus positive results from the production so filming had to be suspended. The crew had also urged members of the public to remain socially distanced from one another. Tom and the director have also made the same request.
The actor has been wearing a mask onset and has been keeping his eye out for people who break the COVID-19 protocols. According to The Sun, he has paid £500,000 of his own money to pay for a cruise ship for the cast and crew to isolate on.
