It’s official, Tom Cruise and ‘Mission Impossible’ are coming back to the UAE

After some pretty heavy rumours doing the rounds, we can confirm that Tom Cruise and Mission Impossible are coming back to film in the UAE.

The film’s director Christopher McQuarrie confirmed via a stunning Instagram post that the franchise would be returning to film in the UAE.

And judging by the pic, he enjoyed the recent influx of fog just as much as Sheikh Hamdan!

The crew have been filming both the 7th and 8th installments in Mission Impossible to save time and get around the Covid restrictions.

As well as coming to the UAE to film, Tom Cruise and the crew have been seen in London, Norway and Italian cities Rome and Venice. The first film is scheduled to come out later this year with the follow-up in 2022.

As we all know, Tom and the Mission Impossible franchise are no strangers to the UAE. Some of the best shots and scenes from Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol in 2011 featured Tom swinging around the Burj Khalifa, stunts he performed himself!

Just check out what he got up to in this cool video.
