according to the actor Cary Elwes, in an interview for the “The Hollywood Reporter“, he comments that when the director of the new film in the franchise “Mission Impossible“, Christopher McQuarrie, discovered that he had been exposed to covid-19 during the filming of the film, he insisted on continuing to direct the production even remotely.
Cary revealed this behind-the-scenes detail when asked about the challenges the film has been facing throughout the new coronavirus pandemic. “I don’t think I’m saying anything new when I say that production had some difficulties and it had to be stopped. Chris McQuarrie had to drive from his home computer because they tracked his contact with someone who was with covid-19,” he said. the actor.
He even took the opportunity to commend the filmmaker for his dedication to his work. “That’s a testament to how brilliant he is; the fact that he was able to do this. He said, ‘Look, I never want to do this again’ — but he did it. We did it. And this is going to be the biggest ‘Mission: Impossible ‘of all, there’s no doubt about it,” said the actor.
The footage of “Mission: Impossible 7” ended last September, after several breaks in production due to positive tests for covid-19 on set. At the end of last year, an audio was leaked and revealed a “scolding” that the star Tom Cruise gave the team for disrespecting the safety protocols in the pandemic.
