Working with Tom Cruise is not for the faint of heart.
With each subsequent part of the action movie “Mission Impossible”, Tom Cruise raises and raises the stakes – not everyone is comfortable working with the actor, whom some call “adrenaline junkie” behind the scenes of Hollywood. Although thanks to Tom Cruise and his love for spectacular, very dangerous and, most importantly, absolutely realistic stunts, the genre of spy thrillers in Hollywood continues to flourish and develop. In any case, working with an actor on the set is another challenge. At least that’s what Simon Pegg thinks, who, along with Cruise, took part in the filming of most parts of The Mission.
In an interview with Conan O’Brien, Simon admitted that the 58-year-old Cruise’s colleagues on the set feel a very real fear, watching what the actor does on the set. So, they are never completely sure whether he will survive in the process of performing the next trick.
“When you watch the finished film and see Tom doing another trick, the sight is so intense that you want to bite your nails. But you know he survived because he took part in the press tour and was featured on Good Morning America. But when we watch him on the set, we are never completely sure that he will survive. And so he jumps off a cliff on a motorcycle, and everyone waits with bated breath. Did you survive, didn’t you? It’s a terrible feeling. “
When exactly the seventh part of “Mission” starts in cinemas remains unknown: the pandemic has made adjustments to the shooting and distribution schedule of absolutely all blockbusters and “Mission” is no exception.
