Tom Cruise has bought two high-technology robots that will enforce coronavirus safety regulation on the set of “Mission: Impossible 7”, and he also runs the coronavirus tests to the crew, as a report claimed.
“Tom is so serious about making sure the shoot isn’t shut down that he’s splashed out on these robots as he can’t be everywhere to ensure people are behaving themselves,” a source that is part of the set told The Sun.
Shooting resumes this week in the UK before the production heads to Dubai, the source said.
Tom Cruise, 58, recently slammed two crew members for flouting COVID-19 safety protocols on the set of the ongoing production. Now he has spent millions to move the production to a former tank design base in Longcross in Surrey, according to report.
As they were filming at Leavesden in Hertfordshire, Cruise went out of the hook when the two staffers stood too close to each other.
“If I see you do it again, you’re f–king gone! And if anyone in this crew does it, that’s it — and you too and you too! And you, don’t you ever f–king do it again!” Tom was heard yelling in a leaked audio clip that has long gone viral.
Then after another outburst for the same reason, five staffers decided to quit the set.
“Yes, the rant that came out last month may have been a bit over the top, but he was right, and those who saw the story sympathized with him,” the source told The Sun.
“He gets paid a lot for these films but he also knows that he is lucky to be working and staff on the film from top to bottom rely on this film going ahead. You don’t have to go far to see how just how much the pandemic has affected jobs,” the person continued.
“The robots are really sophisticated and rather intimidating. It’s like the Terminator only not as violent,” the source said.
