It still seems to be all hush-hush, but Tom Cruise is shooting flight scenes for Mission: Impossible 8 in Puglia, according to witnesses who saw him board a helicopter in Bari for an unknown destination Tuesday.
The Hollywood star is believed to be filming a scene in which he lands on an aircraft carrier.
The action hero arrived in the Puglia capital earlier this week and several large black vans with British number plates have been seen outside a city hotel.
Cruise, who is currently enjoying the record-breaking success of Top Gun: Maverick, is also a producer on this latest, and what many think may be the last outing for Ethan Hunt.
The Apulia Film Commission said it was not involved in the shoot but expressed satisfaction that American producers had once more chosen Puglia which “confirms it is a region in which there is everything you need for great cinema”.
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two is an upcoming American action spy film written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie, who is also producing it with Cruise. Based on the television series Mission: Impossible by Bruce Geller, it’s a direct sequel to Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One (2023), and the eighth and final installment in the Mission: Impossible film series.
