Tom Cruise ‘launches into furious rant on set after being irritated by noisy tree branches’

Tom Cruise was reportedly infuriated while working on set in North Yorkshire this week filming for Mission: Impossible 7, according to The Sun.

The action hero, 58, is believed to have been irritated by noisy branches on the roof of his trailer and called for some local men to come and cut them down.

Insiders on set have claimed Tom couldn’t stand the noisy trees, while trying to relax in between takes for the new instalment of the spy franchise.

A source told the newspaper: ‘There isn’t much Tom can’t put up with. So imagine how baffled everyone was when there was such a fuss made over a tree.

‘The branches hanging over were knocking on the roof of the trailer which Tom and some of the other cast had been using.

‘Apparently the noise was becoming beyond irritating and they couldn’t stand it any longer. Two local lads were called out to sort out the problem and cut down the offending branches.’

MailOnline have contacted Tom’s reps for comment. 

The source also revealed that the set has been getting busy with fans hoping to catch a glimpse of Tom and his co-star and rumoured girlfriend Hayley Atwell.

They claimed that two paramedics who stopped to get pictures were hauled away by security and ordered to delete the images they had taken. 

A team of cleaners are also on set constantly sanitising the area in a bid to prevent anymore Covid set backs, after filming was forced to halt on several occasions.

In December it was reported that five crew members on the Mission: Impossible set had ‘quit after Tom launched into two rants.

The actor was said to have given staff a dressing down after he caught them breaking UK Covid rules at Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, Hertfordshire.

A source claimed after news of the first outburst was made public, there was ‘more anger’ at the already ‘tense’ production.

An insider said: ‘Tension has been building for months and this was the final straw. Since it became public there has been more anger and several staff have walked.

‘But Tom just can’t take any more after all the lengths they have gone to just to keep filming at all. He’s upset others aren’t taking it as seriously as him.’

They added that it was Tom who feels responsible for the production after putting so much time and money into ensuring precautions are in place so the team can film.

It was previously reported that the Hollywood star scolded workers who flouted social distancing rules while filming at Warner Bros. Studios.

More recently, the cast and crew of Mission: Impossible 7 have been prepping a climactic action sequence with a moving train – however it was almost derailed by angry locals.

Tom was spotted this week squaring off in an epic fight atop a moving train with the sequel’s villain, played by Esai Morales, while filming in North Yorkshire.

And the film’s explosive climax will be filmed in a small Derbyshire village, with The Sun reporting that the production team has received complaints from a local couple who claimed the shoot would ‘shatter the tranquility’ of the area.

The scene is set to be filmed in the village of Stoney Middleton in Derbyshire, with the movie using Darlton Quarry.

The production team have reportedly built a track which stops over the old quarry, with the train said to go hurtling off the tracks and fall 160 feet into the quarry, while Cruise’s Ethan Hunt and Morales’ unnamed villain fight atop the locomotive. 

The filming application was objected by retired couple, Elizabeth Longbottom, 80, a former health visitor, and her husband Robin, 76, a retired surveyor.

‘This is an area of beauty and tranquility — and that’s going to be shattered when Mr Cruise and his team turn up. He means nothing to me, it’s 46 years since my husband and I went to the cinema,’ Elizabeth said.

Robin added: ‘I assume the film company are paying handsomely for the privilege of disrupting everyone’s lives.’

The couple’s objection also added that they felt the scene, ‘could be done more economically and with less disturbance by being digitally generated.’

While there were others that objected to the shoot, the Peak District National Park Authority approved the application, while the production company Jupiter Springs promised to keep the disruption to a minimum.

Cruise is expected to be in the area rehearsing the stunt sequence for three weeks before the shoot, which is expected to be the film’s action-packed climax.

The train is said to plunge into a 70-meter water tank after falling off the tracks and into the quarry.

Director Christopher McQuarrie teased the sequence on his Instagram over the past week, sharing shots of the train’s wheels, but on Monday, he shared a snap of Cruise hanging from the side of the train, while thanking the Yorkshire locals and teasing the climactic scene in the Yorkshire village of Levisham.

‘What would Mission be without a bit of local color? Our sincerest thanks to North Yorkshire Moors Railway, the Office of Rail and Road, Eddie Draper, Riley’s & GB Rail Freight and, of course, the incredibly lovely and welcoming people of Levisham,’ the director said.

Disruption: While there were others that objected to the shoot, the Peak District National Park Authority approved the application, while the production company Jupiter Springs promised to keep the disruption to a minimum

‘We had an amazing week (and remarkably fair weather) in fabulous Yorkshire. We’ll be back for one last bit of mischief in short order,’ he said, likely teasing the climactic scene in Derbyshire.  

It was claimed in February that location filming on Mission: Impossible 7 had wrapped after a marathon global schedule had been interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

At the time, director Christopher McQuarrie posted that production had finished in Abu Dhabi and he was heading ‘back to London for a few finishing touches.’

The delays due to the pandemic, however, mean that Tom’s plan to go straight into filming an eighth Mission: Impossible movie have had to be shelved, Deadline.com reported.

Filming on Mission: Impossible 7 was supposed to start in Italy in February 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic delayed it until July 2020.

Filming began in the UK, moved to Norway and then back to Italy where it ground to a halt once again after 12 crew members tested positive for the coronavirus.  

Mission: Impossible 7 is currently slated for release on May 27, 2022, with Mission: Impossible 8 expected to follow on July 7, 2023.
