After filming in Venice, Tom Cruise and the Mission: Impossible 7 crew returned to Rome to shoot further car chases on the streets of the capital.
With a couple of weeks November a Venezia, interrupted a few days for some cases of Covid among the members of the crew, the filming in Italy of Mission: Impossible 7 they should have ended. Surprisingly instead, Tom Cruise he returned to Rome where for several days in October he blocked the streets of the Monti district, as well as the very central Via dei Fori Imperiali that connects the Colosseum with the Altare della Patria, for what will be the adrenaline-pumping sequences of car chases of the film.
There is a reason, however, that the Mission: Impossible saga they are technically and aesthetically flawless with regard to action scenes. The perfectionism of Tom Cruise, as producer, and writer and director Christopher McQuarrie includes, as a regular option if necessary, additional shots if those taken do not fully satisfy their judgment. It is common practice for Hollywood films to call actors on sets that may have already been dismantled and to be rebuilt to make adjustments to the story and, in this case, Cruise e McQuarrie they probably took advantage of the Venetian interruption to review the material shot in Rome with a temporary editing. Could it be improved? They must have asked themselves … No, we can and must improve. And then the imposing organizational machine moved for new permits to be requested from the municipality of Rome, new hotel reservations and new shots to be found. And, of course, more money for the municipal coffers.
In the images below captured by passers-by and published on social networks, we see again Cruise e Hayley Atwell aboard a BMW without the four doors and then narrowed inside a yellow 500. Mission: Impossible 7 is making the most of these reshoots the sunny days of Rome with a maximum temperature of 18 °.
