Tom Cruise is on a mission to make sure his new flick is not hit with any more coronavirus disruptions — by building a secure studio on a former top-secret military base, according to a report.
The 58-year-old megastar, who recently blew up on two crew members on the set of “Mission: Impossible 7” for flouting COVID-19 safety protocols, is spending millions to move the production to a former tank design base in Longcross in Surrey, The Sun reported.
While filming at Leavesden in Hertfordshire, Cruise went ballistic when the two workers stood too close together.
“If I see you do it again, you’re f–king gone! And if anyone in this crew does it, that’s it — and you too and you too! And you, don’t you ever f–king do it again!” the “Top Gun” actor was heard yelling in a leaked audio clip.
Five staffers reportedly quit following a second outburst.
Cruise’s production in Italy was halted earlier because of the pandemic — once after a report of a positive test on set, the news outlet reported.
He received permission to resume shooting in the UK in July after he made a personal plea to Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden, The Sun reported.
Despite the string of setbacks, Cruise has reportedly grown close to British co-star Hayley Atwell, 38, whom he started dating on the set of “Mission: Impossible 7,” according to the outlet.
“Tom and Hayley hit it off from day one,” a production source told The Sun.
“Lockdown, and all the difficulties that came with it, brought them closer together,” the source added. “They’ve been meeting after hours and she’s been to his London pad. “They get on brilliantly. Both seem very happy.”
