Tom Cruise is flying south for the winter break … fleeing his now controversial ‘Mission: Impossible 7’ set after blowing a gasket over COVID-19 rules.
Production’s reportedly shut down on ‘MI7,’ but not due to a breach in COVID protocols — it’s so Tom can start his Christmas break a little earlier than planned. Cruise is hopping on a private jet to Miami to hang with his son, Connor … according to The Sun.
Of course, the early break likely does have something to do with the film’s star and producer blowing his top … and the audio of his rant leaking.
As you know … Tom exploded on set after seeing two crew members breaking COVID protocols by getting within 6 feet of each other, and his tirades and threats of mass firings convinced at least 5 folks to call it quits.
Now, Tom’s deciding he needs a break too … and The Sun reports Friday will be the movie’s last day of filming this year, as tensions rise on set.
If anyone needs a little Christmas, right this very moment, it’s the ‘Mission’ crew and its leading man.
