Tom Cruise has returned to Rome to continue filming Mission: Impossible 7, and now some new footage from the set has emerged. The Associated Press captured a video of Cruise and co-star Hayley Atwell filming a scene. There isn’t much to go on here.

At the end of the video, a plume of smoke can be seen emerging from the location. While another crashed vehicle can be seen alongside actors lying on the ground. Check the video out below. The video also showcases a lighter side of the filming process. Cruise waves to onlookers trying to get a peek at the set.

Earlier this year, filming on Mission: Impossible 7 shut down in Rome due to COVID-19. The team apparently moved to Norway to film other scenes, like this incredible stunt. Cruise rides a bike off a mountain and parachutes to the ground. Apparently, the production team has been given the go-ahead to return to Rome to continue filming on location in the city.
Mission Impossible 7 and 8 are being filmed back-to-back, and Christopher McQuarrie is writing and directing both. He also wrote and directed Rogue Nation and Fallout. New additions to the cast include Atwell, Pom Klementieff, and Shea Whigham. MI7 is scheduled to come to theatres in November 2021. While its sequel slated for November 2022. Both movies were delayed due to the pandemic.
