Story highlights

‘Mission: Impossible 7’ is being helmed by filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie.

Hollywood star Tom Cruise took an 11-hour flight to the UK to beat the new 14-day self-isolating quarantine rule of the country that the authorities have put in place. 

The actor flew straight to join the crew of his film ‘Mission: Impossible 7’. The new rules were to be implemented a day later. 

Now, the actor is free to resume shooting for his film. He laded at Biggin Hill airport outside of London.

"It`s no accident Tom arrived on Sunday night -- they didn't want their leading man locked away on his own for 14 days. There have already been so many delays to the film and everyone is keen to get it up and running at the first possible second -- so slipping in before the quarantine rules came in on Monday made sense," said a source close to the film.

The rules have been put in place as a preventive measure to avoid the spread of coronavirus.

The film ‘Mission: Impossible 7’ is being shot at an abandoned RAF base in Oxfordshire. It also stars Simon Pegg, Alec Baldwin, Vanessa Kirby and Rebecca Ferguson.

‘Mission: Impossible 7’ is being helmed by filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie. It was slated to release on July 23, 2021. The film was postponed and will release on November 19, 2021.
