Film crewmembers working on set of the latest installment of the “Mission Impossible” franchise are complaining, thanks to “obsessed” Tom Cruise.
Sources say that the Hollywood actor is continuing to be a nightmare.
“A lot of us would love to cut our losses and leave things for a while, then pick up when we can,” an insider revealed.
“But Tom is completely obsessed with finishing and nothing will stop him.”
“He’s the most determined person. It’s impressive, but a nightmare,” the source added.
Last December, an audio clip of Cruise yelling at crewmembers for not following safety protocols was leaked on the internet.
This lead to him spending a significant amount of money to buy two robots tasked to ensure everyone on set adheres to Covid-19 mandates.
“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,” the insider revealed.
The production team is not only worried about Cruise’s obsession, after the filming moved out of the UK to shoot scenes at the United Arab Emirates.
They are worried that they might not be able to go back home as scheduled after direct flights between Middle East and the UK are being banned.
“Now many of the production team, especially the more junior staff who aren’t on big salaries, are up in arms and just want to go home,” the source said.
“This is starting to feel like a real nightmare of a production — and of course, a lot of that is totally unavoidable.”
“But the hope was that after the pre-Christmas rows and delays, filming out in the UAE would give the crew more freedom to make headway without holdups,” the insider continued.
“It feels like everything is against us at the moment and morale is really down.”
