Filming for Mission Impossible 7 finally resumed this week. 

And on Friday, Tom Cruise, 59, filmed a daring upside down train stunt in Derbyshire for Mission Impossible 7, after parachuting in from a helicopter.  

The Hollywood movie production had a Norwegian train carriage crash off the edge of a cliff and become suspended upside down above large trees.

This is just the latest in an array of stunts that Tom has performed for the latest film, with the actor previously seen doing a parachute jump four times to ensure director Christopher McQuarrie landed the perfect shot in the Lake District.

And prior to that, Tom was photographed clinging to a train for another daring scene filmed in Yorkshire.

It comes after Mission: Impossible 7 filming was reportedly paused again in June due to a positive Covid test with crew members speculating it could be Tom.

Despite there being ‘no proof’ to back up the idle talk, it has been claimed that people are gossiping it could be Tom due to his alleged absence on set.  

The actor was previously said to have been forced to self-isolate for two weeks after 14 people on the UK set of the film tested positive for coronavirus.

The actor was said to have spent a day filming with four female dancers as they shot scenes in a nightclub for the upcoming movie, who later tested positive.

Filming of the new instalment previously took place at Longcross Studios in Chertsey, Surrey, and production was halted and the 60-member team self-isolated amid the positive tests.

Mission: Impossible 7 filming has been hit with several set backs and delays amid the Covid pandemic, with it shooting on location in Italy, the UK and Norway.

In December it was reported that five crew members had quit after Tom launched into two rants.

The actor was said to have given staff a dressing down after he caught them breaking UK Covid rules at Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, Hertfordshire. 

A source claimed after news of the first outburst was made public, there was ‘more anger’ at the already ‘tense’ production.

An insider said: ‘Tension has been building for months and this was the final straw. Since it became public there has been more anger and several staff have walked.

‘But Tom just can’t take any more after all the lengths they have gone to just to keep filming at all. He’s upset others aren’t taking it as seriously as him.’

They added that it was Tom who feels responsible for the production after putting so much time and money into ensuring precautions are in place so the team can film.

It was previously reported that the Hollywood star scolded workers who flouted social distancing rules while filming at Warner Bros. Studios.

MailOnline contacted Tom’s representatives for further comment at the time.  

Mission Impossible 7 is currently set for release on September 30, 2022.
