Tom Cruise hires GBP 0,5 million Hurtigruten cruise ship for Mission Impossible 7 crew

   September 2, 2020 ,   Cruise Industry

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. 

MS Fridtjof Nansen will dock in Hellesylt, Norway, approx 217 mi (350 km) from Port Bergen.

Additional filming delays could push back the planned release of Mission: Impossible 7 in 2021.
