Tom Cruise's Mission: Impossible 7 suffers another setback after stunt train crashes into bridge on set

Another day, another production drama on the set of Tom Cruise‘s highly-anticipated movie, Mission: Impossible 7.

Since filming kicked off last year, the production has been met with a series of setbacks. And now bad luck has struck again after a stunt train reportedly crashed underneath a motorway bridge as the crew filmed in Derbyshire, England.

According to The Sun, a train carriage to be used for stunts became wedged under a low railway bridge as it was being transported to the set. The incident caused massive disruption to rush-hour traffic as it brought cars to a standstill for hours on the notoriously busy Horns Bridge roundabout before the train was freed.

The cast and crew have experienced major delays this past year mainly due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In total, production has been shut down seven times due to the virus — a combination caused by positive coronavirus tests among the cast or crew or quarantine or lockdowns imposed in countries where the movie was being shot.

Filming on the action series was delayed four times in Italy, and three times in the UK between February 2020 and June 2021. And last month, the movie’s production company, Paramount Pictures, filed a lawsuit in the US accusing the film’s insurance company of failing to pay out for all but one of the stoppages.

The delays have particularly been a sore spot for Cruise, who is also a producer on the film. The actor infamously lost his temper on the set in England back in December over a breach in COVID protocols. In his meltdown, which was caught on audio, Cruise threatened to fire cast and crew members who did not take social distancing seriously. 

“I said what I said,” the 58-year-old actor later told Empire Magazine in May, adding “there was a lot at stake at that point”.

“But it wasn’t my entire crew. I had the crew leave the set, and it was just select people.”
