Tom Cruise takes COVID protocols very seriously on the set of the new ‘Mission Impossible,’ and tore into crew members for breaking the rules … telling them they’d be “f**king gone” if it happens again.
Tom was on the U.K. set of ‘MI 7’ when someone recorded his expletive-laced tirade … parked by seeing 2 crew members standing within 6 feet of each other around a monitor … according to The Sun, which first posted the audio.
It might sound like a minor infraction, but Tom makes it clear he and the entire production can’t afford ANY slip ups when it comes to COVID safety. He raged at them, saying the cast and crew need to be the “gold standard” when it comes to filming safely.
With a ton of f-bombs — and even one instance of calling the culprits “motherf**kers” — Tom let be known, in no uncertain terms, everyone he was pissed off. The rant is reminiscent of Christian Bale’s on a ‘Terminator’ flick — but the root of Tom’s anger is much different.
He explained the ‘MI’ production is under pressure from Hollywood — specifically the studios and insurance companies backing his movie, and no doubt, trying to avoid a COVID-19 outbreak.
It sounds like Tom’s caught these guys screwing up before, because he says he’s told them at least once, and now he’s demanding they get in line, or get the hell out … but with much more colorful language.
Word is Tom has taken it upon himself to do safety inspections on the set, and literally goes around making sure everything is up to snuff as far safety and approved protocols. Makes sense — he’s known as an intense guy … but, lord, we didn’t know how freakin’ intense.
Granted, this is Tom’s baby (and ‘M.I.’ has been forced to shut down before) … but still — take it easy. And to everyone else around him at the moment … spread out!
