Keeping the filming schedule scheduled for last March intact, Tom Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie bring the set of Mission: Impossible 7 from Rome to Venice.
As had happened in recent days in Rome, also in Venice Tom Cruise stops, greets and at a safe distance is photographed with the fans. A “Ciao”, “How are you” e “Thank you” he has it for anyone, despite being working, whether it’s rehearsals or breaks in the middle of actual shooting. The production of Mission: Impossible 7 it therefore moved to the lagoon after the chases on the streets of the capital. Tom Cruise, in addition to being the star of the saga, he has been a producer since the first film in 1996 and it was he who decided to keep intact the shooting plan initially planned in March when our country entered a severe lockdown because of Covid-19.
That interruption was forcing Cruise and the director Christopher McQuarrie to fall back on other countries, but the dramatic evolution of the virus at European and global level has stopped film and television productions all over the world. When it was time to resume work, according to the required safety protocol, Cruise did not hesitate to put back Rome and Venice in the shooting plan, also to help the two cities recover from the summer absence of tourism. The money spent on the production of the film in Italy will amount to about 35 million dollars.
The set these days a Venezia it is set up for night shots, but in the afternoons Tom Cruise prepares the scenes, as we see him below testing his balance on a taxi motorboat. One scene in the film involves a chase as the actor overcomes a canal by jumping from one boat to another.
