Tom Cruise Hoping to Shoot Part of Mission: Impossible 7 in Norway
According to Deadline, Mission: Impossible franchise star Tom Cruise is aiming to return to Norway this year to film part of Mission: Impossible 7 after the country provided the backdrop for a memorable scene in Mission: Impossible – Fallout, wherein the actor scales a cliff face surrounded by mountain peaks.
Cruise spoke with Norway’s culture minister Abid Raja on Saturday about filming in the country this fall. In a clip shared by Raja (which you can view below), Cruise called Norway “a gorgeous country” and shared he “can’t wait to get back there.” Raja also hopes they’ll be able to shoot part of the film in Norway, but acknowledged that the pandemic restrictions could prove a logistical challenge for production and they “will abide by the rules and coronavirus restrictions.” Raja plans on speaking with the government about his conversation with Cruise.
Joining Tom Cruise and Hayley Atwell are returning Mission: Impossible alums Rebecca Ferguson (Doctor Sleep), Simon Pegg (Ready Player One), Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction), Vanessa Kirby (Hobbs & Shaw) and Henry Czerny (Ready or Not) along with newcomers Shea Whigham (Joker), Pom Klementieff (Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Avengers: Infinity War) and Esai Morales (La Bamba, Titans) who will replace Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road) for the villain role.
