Hollywood star Tom Cruise (57, "Oblivion") landed at Biggin Hill Airport near London on Sunday evening, according to the British newspaper "The Sun". The actor wants to continue the filming of "Mission Impossible 7", which was recently put on hold by the Corona crisis. The actor chose the date of his arrival for a reason. Only a few hours later, the UK came into force to require all travelers to enter a 14-day quarantine.
The UK government announced on May 22 that travelers to the UK would have to stay in isolation for 14 days after their arrival on June 8. Violators would be fined £ 1,000 (around € 1,100). "He came especially on Sunday because they didn't want to quarantine their lead actor for two weeks," said one source explaining the filmmaker's decision to The Sun. Filming in Oxfordshire, UK can begin without delay – which is very convenient for Tom Cruise.
A few days ago, "The Sun", citing a source, reported that the actor wanted to "get the shooting going again quickly and safely". These had to be stopped in Venice at the end of February due to the pandemic. He now wanted to build a corona-free village on the abandoned site of the British Air Force in Oxfordshire – due to the current lack of hotel rooms and caravans for everyone involved.
By helicopter to the set
Cruise had traveled eleven hours from Clearwater Airport in Florida. According to "The Sun", he rented a luxury apartment in London for his stay in Great Britain. He is to be flown to the location by helicopter.
In "Mission Imposssible 7" Cruise will once again embody Ethan Hunt. Other roles include Alec Baldwin (62), Simon Pegg (50), Vanessa Kirby (32) and Rebecca Ferguson (36). Directed as in the last two films in the series, "Mission Imposssible: Rogue Nation" (2015) and "Mission Imposssible: Fallout" (2018), Christopher McQuarrie (51). The seventh part is to celebrate its premiere in November 2021.
