There's plenty going on in Tom Cruise's life. When he's not impressing his co-stars reprising his role on sequel Top Gun: Maverick or filming himself catching Tenet in theatres (with a mask!), the actor is once again trying to outdo himself for the Mission Impossible franchise. Starring Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Nicholas Hoult, Vanessa Kirby and more, Mission: Impossible 7 has recently resumed production in Norway after a pandemic break, according to director Christopher McQuarrie's latest Instagram post.
The daredevil stunt, filmed by NGTV, shows a man (presumably Cruise, who's known to be his own stuntman) riding a motorbike off the ramp before parachuting down. In signature Cruise style, the move has garnered reactions by the Internet and stirred excitement for the latest instalment.

As part of production, two Hurtigruten cruise ships have been chartered for the entire cast and crew by production company Truenorth to protect the set and staff from potential exposure to coronavirus infection. The MS Vesterålen and MS Fridtjof Nansen that have been rented out for a month are reportedly partially funded by Cruise himself. Talk about dedication.
Now whether that giant ramp stays as is or becomes a pre-CGI cliff, we'll just have to wait to find out.
Mission: Impossible 7 is set to release November 2021.
