Tom Cruise Gets Furious at Mission Impossible 7 Production Crew
A three-minute audio clip of the event is now circulating online
Tom Cruise was not happy with some of the Mission: Impossible 7 production crew members after he caught them not observing the set’s COVID-19 protocols.
According to reports, the actor was quite furious when he came across two of the production crew at the Warner Bros. Studios located in Leavesden, Hertfordshire, U.K. were breaking the two-metre protocol in front of a computer. There was a three-minute audio clip obtained by The Sun hears Cruise yelling and threatening to sack them. “If I see you do it again, you’re f***ing gone. And if anyone in this crew does it, that’s it – and you too and you too.
“And you, don’t you ever f***ing do it again.”
Evidently, Tom Cruise was unhappy that his plans to keep the production of the movie running during the pandemic were being put at risk, the obatined audio clip also captures him as having said: “We want the gold standard.
“They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us! Because they believe in us and what we’re doing!
“I’m on the phone with every f***ing 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***ers.
“I don’t ever want to see it again, ever! And if you don’t do it, you’re fired. If I see you do it again, you’re f***ing gone. And if anyone in this crew does it – that’s it, and you too and you too. And you, don’t you ever f***ing do it again.
“That’s it! No apologies. You can tell it to the people that are losing their f***ing homes because our industry is shut down. It’s not going to put food on their table or pay for their college education.
“That’s what I sleep with every night. The future of this f***ing industry! So I’m sorry, I am beyond your apologies. I have told you and now I want it – and if you don’t do it, you’re out. We are not shutting this f***ing movie down! Is it understood?
“If I see it again, you’re f***ing gone – and you are – so you’re going to cost him his job. If I see it on the set, you’re gone and you’re gone.”
“That’s it. Am I clear?”
“Do you understand what I want? Do you understand the responsibility that you have? Because I will deal with your reason. And if you can’t be reasonable and I can’t deal with your logic, you’re fired. That’s it. That is it.”
“I trust you guys to be here. That’s it. That’s it, guys. Have a little think about it. . .[inaudible].”
“That’s what I think of Universal and Paramount. Warner Brothers. Movies are going because of us. If we shut down it’s going to cost people f***ing jobs, their home, their family. That’s what’s happening.”
“All the way down the line. And I care about you guys, but if you’re not going to help me, you’re gone. OK? Do you see that stick? How many metres is that?”
“When people are standing around a f***ing computer and hanging out around here, what are you doing? And if they don’t comply, then send their names to Matt Spooner. That’s it.”
Filming of the upcoming Mission Impossible installment was halted in October 2020 when 12 production staff in Italy tested positive for COVID-19. Tom Cruise and the rest of the production team resumed filming a week after, and then went back to the U.K. just two weeks ago.
