Mission Impossible 8 shooting scenes on an aircraft carrier in Italy
Tom Cruise is back on the aircraft carriers. This time for his other huge franchise – the Mission Impossible series.
Tom Cruise is back on the decks of an aircraft carrier, but not for a new one top gun. The loner Star was seen heading to the USS George HW Bush after arriving in Bari, an Italian port city. Cruise filmed scenes for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One throughout Italy, including Venice and Rome. Since the two parts are shot back-to-back, the country seems to play a big role in both films.
diversity reports that Antonio Parente, head of the Apulia Film Commission, said Cruise flew into Bari, the capital of the Apulia region, on Saturday. After spending the night at the 5-star Hotel Delle Nazioni in Bari, Cruise boarded a private helicopter from Bari Airport on Sunday to shoot scenes for the eighth film Impossible Mission Entry on a US aircraft carrier “That’s probably the USS George HW Bush, but we’re not sure.” said Parente.
He added, “The US Navy ship was near the Italian coast when Cruise boarded, but now it’s somewhere between Italy and Croatia.” Parente was quick to show his excitement that the city was chosen to host the scenes that will star in the epic blockbuster. “We’re proud of that [the] Puglia [region] was chosen as the operational base for this rather complex shoot,” he says. According to Parente The Apulia Film Commission had contacted Paramount Italia but only provided assistance with airport logistics for them Impossible Mission shoot.
Cruise had also shared a behind-the-scenes video for Dead Reckoning Part One documenting the training and preparation for a massive motorcycle jumping stunt that took place on a cliff in Hellesylt, Norway. The jump site was isolated, so stunt rigs to be built for the ramp were helicoptered in piece by piece. The production for Dead reckoning part 2 on the arctic island of Spitsbergen off the coast of Norway.
The locations for these contributions are seemingly becoming more and more exotic, and that’s what to expect for a Tom Cruise production that will be the final installments in its Banner franchise.
