Tom Cruise has let Mission: Impossible 7 crew members have it after witnessing them break COVID-19 safety protocols.
According to The Sun, Cruise scolded two crew members who had been standing too close to each other in front of a computer monitor. “If I see you do it again you’re fucking gone,” Cruise asserted.

“We are the gold standard,” Cruise continues in an audio file obtained by The Sun. “They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us. Because they believe in us and what we’re doing.”
The actor had been criticizing the crew for taking advantage of the safe environment that had been created on set after the film encountered multiple delays during filming.

“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,” Cruise says. “We are creating thousands of jobs, you motherfuckers. I don’t ever want to see it again. Ever!”
Cruise also went on to say that he did not want to see production shut down again after the film’s delays, urging that he was “beyond your apologies.” “Am I clear? Do you understand what I want? Do you understand the responsibility that I have?”
Mission: Impossible 7 is set for release on November 19th, 2021.
