Tom Cruise, the magnificent star of movies like “Cocktail,” “The Colour of Money,” “Top Gun,” and the famous Mission Impossible series is no ordinary movie star; his name alone is enough to fill in theatres around the world. To this day, the actor, who is, believe it or not, 58 carries the charm and starry persona that makes women grow weak in their knees. Someone often chastised for his connection to the belief in Scientology, which appears weird and absurd in equal measure to some, Tom Cruise is still, a hundred percent Hollywood gold.
The July-born star is soon to appear in the seventh movie instalment of the iconic spy-action franchise Mission Impossible. The last edition, a mega-hit, seeing him traverse the world in the hunt to stop a rogue agent, who Ethan Hunt would go to innumerable lengths from plunging the world on the cusp of a nuclear threat.
But that being told, of late, a lot has been making it to the headlines related to Mission Impossible 7, the upcoming mega-adventure that’ll hopefully see the Syracuse-born in “Cruise Control,” once again.
Though it also appears there is some trouble brewing in the air for the handsome star where the shoot of his latest film is concerned. What was shocking is that, it is being reported that, all of a sudden, Tom Cruise went ‘missing’ from the film shoot and was nowhere to be found.
Then, there were a few who shared that Tom Cruise had, reportedly, violated the COVID protocols and as part of the violation, was made to stay in a bubble. Though there are also rumours that Tom Cruise is suffering from COVID 19, having contacted the virus.
That being said- what is the truth? What’s happened to Tom Cruise and where is he at the moment? Let us find out from a news piece published on famous American publication:
The Tom Cruise’s action flick is hit with a lengthy delay for the second time this time around owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, as earlier this month, shooting was paused when some staffers tested positive.
According to reports, many insiders are speculating that this time around the shoot has been stopped due to Crusie himself.
In spite of there there being no proof of Cruise being responsible, the hearsay was sparked over the actor’s absence on set.
“Filming on Mission: Impossible 7 is on hold again because of coronavirus. And this time, those working on the production have said they think Tom could be the possible cause of the postponement,” a source said to The Sun.
“Everyone on the set was told that filming was being stopped again because of a positive test. And since then, Tom hasn’t been on set once,” they went on to say.
That told, let’s hope that the shoot for the famous spy saga resumes soon and that Tom returns to the set absolutely unscathed and in the pink of the health. He is exactly to th Mission Impossible movies what Lionel Messi is to Argentina or Lewis Hamilton to the Mercedes Formula 1 team. A true star, an icon that none can match.
