New audio captures Tom Cruise ranting at his co-workers on the British set of Mission: Impossible 7 for breaking COVID-19 protocols.
The star, who’s also a producer of the blockbuster franchise, threatened to fire anyone not following the guidelines, according to the recording published by the The Sun.
Cruise was reportedly upset to see people standing too close together. Variety confirmed the incident.
“If I see you do it again you’re f****** gone,” Cruise can be heard saying.
“We are the gold standard. They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us. Because they believe in us and what we’re doing. I’m on the phone with every f****** studio at night, insurance companies, producers, and they’re looking at us and using us to make their movies.
“We are creating thousands of jobs, you motherf*******. I don’t ever want to see it again. Ever!”
He said he didn’t want the movie to be shut down. Mission: Impossible 7 was one of the films to halt production early in the year, because of the epidemic, likely costing Hollywood studios millions, and – crucially – putting many film professionals, who are largely freelance, out of work.
