During the filming of the seventh part of the Mission: Impossible franchise, there was a severe accident, as a result of which a motorcycle worth $ 2 million was burned
Fortunately, the performer of the main role, Hollywood actor Tom Cruise, remained unharmed, but he fell into a real rage.
On Tuesday, August 11, 2020, five fire trucks arrived at the scene of the accident, as well as an ambulance. The fire broke out suddenly and very quickly switched to the scenery. All the special services worked very quickly, but they failed to save the transport.
According to the plot, Tom Cruise on a motorcycle was supposed to jump off the ramp and fly beautifully in a vehicle, but something on the site did not go according to plan. The actor simply lost his temper at the time of the accident, because it happened through no fault of his. This scene was to be one of the most spectacular and expensive to shoot in the UK. The details of this scene were worked out by the best specialists, all members of the film crew rehearsed this very moment for 6 weeks. Unfortunately, it all ended in failure. That is why Tom was furious, because this event postpones the final of filming.
One of the insiders, who was present at the site at that moment, decided to share his impressions. This man is sure that everything went wrong from the very beginning of the scene.
“It was a huge challenge for the entire production team, and it cost a fortune. I no longer take into account the week of creating the scenery, which was destroyed in a second. However, when it came to day X, it all went horribly from the start. " - said the insider.
According to the source, the experts incorrectly set fire to the ears, which were used as decorations. The heat and smoke from them affected the motorcycle, which eventually overheated and flashed like a match. It was at the very moment when the motorcycle caught fire and fell, the fire went over in seconds to the rest of the scenery. The insider also reports that there was such a huge amount of smoke that they even had to temporarily close the airport, which is located near the film set in the UK.
“Fortunately, no one was hurt in this situation. Of course, this is a complete disaster, especially if you also take into account how much money all this cost the persons concerned. Tom is insanely upset. Nobody wants delays anymore” - added an insider.
The premiere of the film was supposed to take place in November 2020, it was delayed due to the coronavirus epidemic. Now, due to an accident that occurred through negligence, the show will most likely be postponed indefinitely.
