Tom Cruise has rented an entire cruise ship in order to prevent any more filming delays to his next "Mission: Impossible 7" movie production.
The (as-yet-untitled) Mission: Impossible 7 is currently being filmed in a number of European locations but faced production stoppages because of the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.
The actor has paid ~GBP 0,5 million (~USD 665 M / EUR 560 M) to rent MS Fridtjof Nansen (cruise ship operated by Hurtigruten) through the end of September 2020. The vessel will act as a floating hotel for the new film's production crew. Mission: Impossible 7 is on course to film this month in Norway's Romsdal district.
Reports indicate the cruise liner will shelter 200+ local staff, with another 200+ international workers also onboard.
Additional filming delays could push back the planned release of Mission: Impossible 7 in 2021.
