Really taking the Coronavirus pandemic seriously, reports are noting that Tom Cruise has purchased robots to ensure COVID-19 safety protocols are being practiced on the set of Mission: Impossible 7. The news comes after leaked audio that recorded the veteran actor reprimanding staff that were not following COVID-19 protocols, ultimately risking to shut down shooting completely again. In his outburst, Cruise noted how important for the cast and crew to stay safe and keep shooting going, “They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us. We are creating thousands of jobs, you motherf*ckers.” Five crew members reportedly quit after news broke about the incident on set in Rome.

A source that described the high-tech defenders to “the Terminator only not as violent,” said Tom is so serious about making sure the shoot isn’t shut down that he’s splashed out on these robots as he can’t be everywhere to ensure people are behaving themselves.” The source goes on to say, “Yes, the rant that came out last month may have been a bit over the top, but he was right, and those who saw the story sympathized with him…He gets paid a lot for these films but he also knows that he is lucky to be working and staff on the film from top to bottom rely on this film going ahead.”

Taking a brief pause at the moment, filming for Mission: Impossible 7 is scheduled to resume in the U.K. this week with further filming to take place in Dubai.

In case you missed it, a U.S. Postal worker was caught stealing iPhones, PlayStations and Nintendo consoles.
