Audio footage of Tom Cruise has been leaked and the actor can be heard yelling at staff for breaking Covid-19 protocols.
Filming of the new Mission Impossible movie is taking place in England at the moment. The Sun Newspaper obtained the footage and two inside sources confirmed to Variety that it was Cruise yelling at staff.
He can be heard saying “We are the gold standard. They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us. Because they believe in us and what we’re doing. I’m on the phone with every fucking studio at night, insurance companies, producers and they’re looking at us and using us to make their movies. We are creating thousands of jobs, you motherfuckers. I don’t ever want to see it again. Ever!”
Tom Cruise has been quite strict about the enforcement of the protocols and rules set up in the bubble surrounding the new movie.
In his outburst, he says “You can tell it to the people who are losing their fucking homes because our industry is shut down. It’s not going to put food on their table or pay for their college education. That’s what I sleep with every night – the future of this fucking industry!”
“So I’m sorry, I am beyond your apologies. I have told you, and now I want it, and if you don’t do it, you’re out. We are not shutting this fucking movie down! Is it understood? If I see it again, you’re fucking gone”.
Continuing his rant, Tom Cruise says “Am I clear? Do you understand what I want? Do you understand the responsibility that you have? Because I will deal with your reason, and if you can’t be reasonable and I can’t deal with your logic, you’re fired,” Cruise continued. “That’s it. That is it. I trust you guys to be here.”
The movie has been delayed due to the pandemic and then it suffered another setback in October when 12 people on the set tested positive for Covid-19. The film is set for release November 19, 2021.
