Tom Cruise Cancels Mission Impossible Production Amidst Hollywood Actors’ Strike: Highest-paid actor kept his upcoming action film on hold due to the Hollywood actors’ strike.
He is best known for starring as IMP agent Ethan Hunt in the franchise and has been filming in the United Kingdom in recent days.
According to reports, Tom was in Surrey, with the set now being described as “deserted” due to the widely reported strike.
The most awaited movie, Mission Impossible was set to hit theaters on June 28 next year, less than a year after Part One premiered.
According to the reports of The Hollywood Reporter that the most awaited movie was on a “pre-planned hiatus,” which means that Tom Cruise, filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie and cast members “could embark on a global press tour.”
“The strike will delay when filming picks up again as it aims for a release date 11 months away.” They said.
Fran Drescher, who is the president of SAG-AFTRA has recently said: “It came with great sadness that we came to this crossroads. We had no choice. We are the victims here. We are being victimised by a very greedy entity.”
“I am shocked by the way the people we have been in business with are treating us. I cannot believe, quite frankly, how far apart we are on so many things.
“How they plead poverty, that they’re losing money left and right while giving millions to CEOs. It’s disgusting, shame on them.” The president of SAG-AFTRA said.
According to the reports, the writers are demanding higher payments and residuals from the shows coming on the streaming platform.
Only Mission Impossible is not influenced by the SAG-AFTRA strike, several movies and tv shows are also kept on hold, some of them include, Venom 3, Deadpool 3, Gladiator 2, Disney’s live-action Lilo & Stitch remake, Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part 2, and Brad Pitt’s untitled F1 drama.
