A new video from the set of Mission: Impossible 7 shows Tom Cruise shooting a scene on top of a moving train in Norway.
This set video proves that Tom Cruise has no intention of letting stuntmen do the ambitious action sequences he finds himself doing with each new thriller he stars in. While he recently made the headlines for getting approval to film a new action-adventure movie in space with director Doug Liman, Tom Cruise was spotted in Norway filming an exciting sequence for Mission: Impossible 7 on top of a moving train.
The video was posted by ‘@LaFamiliaFilm’ on Twitter and shows someone filming the Mission: Impossible 7 star on the roof of a moving train. The brilliant footage features another train coming alongside the one being used by the Mission: Impossible 7 crew, and when Tom Cruise spots the fan filming them, he gives a cheery wave at the passengers. The film also stars Hayley Atwell, Rebecca Ferguson and Pom Klementieff. Director Chris McQuarrie later posted a still from the scene on Instagram which seems to show Cruise fighting Esai Morales on the train. Take a look below.
