Tom Cruise has been vocal about the safety on his film set during the COVID-19 pandemic. During a chat with Empire Magazine the actor told why getting production back up and running was important to him.
“I’ve produced 30 to 40 movies. I am responsible for thousands, if not tens of thousands, of jobs,” Cruise tells Empire of the stakes of his job. “All my friends in the industry, people that are in distribution, and my crew were like, ‘What are we going to do? I could lose my house!’ So I told the studio and I told the industry, ‘We’re going back. We’re going to get everyone back to work. We’re going to start shooting in the summer. And we’re going to figure out how to do it safely.’”
In that interview he shared the first image from Mission: Impossible 7.
