A motorcycle stunt went wrong during the shoot of Mission Impossible 7 and now the production has been halted for some time. Actor Tom Cruise is frustrated as he had a difficult road to recovery after the COVID-19 pandemic put a halt to the shoot of the film for several months.
Recently, the production resumed again in the United Kingdom as the restrictions on filming were eased. Now, a stuntman’s motorcycle caught fire at the Oxfordshire during the shoot of the film. A video also came out which showed clouds of smoke all over the accident site. Although, not a single person has been affected in this accident.
The set cost a 2.6 million dollar and it took nearly six weeks to plan this stunt. A source added that this stunt has been a massive challenge and cost a fortune. It took a lot of weeks to construct the scene. The accident occurred due to the miscalculation of the heat and friction of the tires, so when the bike crashed, the cardboard padding sparked and immediately caught fire. Nobody got hurt in the accident. Now, the shoot of the film has been delayed which is frustrating for not only Tom Cruise but also for other cast and crew members as the film has already been delayed a lot due to the global pandemic.
The seventh installment was going to be released on the 23rd of July 2021. But now, it has been rescheduled to November 19th, 2021. Although the release date of the eighth installment was also announced which was August 5th, 2022 now it will hit the theatres on November 4th, 2022.
It was decided by Christopher McQuarrie who also directed the fifth and sixth installment of the franchise that both the seventh and eighth parts will be shot back to back.
