As production on Tom Cruise's Mission Impossible 7 gets underway in Norway, controversy has erupted over the use of cruise ships to house the film's cast and crew.
The production of Mission Impossible 7 has chartered two ships from the Norwegian cruise line Hurtigruten, from the end of August to the end of September. The boats are being used to keep Tom cruise and the rest of the cast of the film in one place as part of the measures to prevent infection by COVID-19. Since the hotel space in the area where the filming will take place is insufficient.
However, two Norwegian unions have reported the cruise company to the police, citing the problem of low minimum wages for Filipino workers on board the ships. Although the salary problem is not verified. Possibly more on the shoulders of the Hurtigruten cruise company, this is not the first time that the production of the film Mission Impossible 7 has been the subject of much controversy.
Last month, the director and writer Christopher McQuarrie he referred to what he said was "inaccurate" about a bridge explosion stunt for the film that would feature the degradation of the more than 100-year-old Pilichowski Bridge in Poland.
"At the beginning of pre-production on Mission Impossible 7, we had a rough concept for a sequence that involved a bridge over a body of water, ideally one that could be (spoiler alert) partially destroyed," he said. Christopher McQuarrie. “Although we doubted that such a thing was possible. A broad search was launched in the unlikely event that any country in the world had a bridge that needed to be disposed of. Some lovely people from Poland responded with enthusiasm. We know of a rail bridge not working in an area that suits our purposes. And, better yet, the area in question was eager to promote tourism. "
Although the Polish government agreed, it generated much controversy.
“After harassing members of Mission Impossible 7 publicly and anonymously on social media. Just as in private, people misrepresented our intentions and hid their personal reasons for wanting to penalize us. McQuarrie wrote. “They even tried to have this condemned, unsafe and unusable bridge marked in hopes of preventing it from being removed and rebuilt. What we understand would be detrimental to the economic needs of the area. Then they came up to us to gloat about it. In short, people's emotional responses were manipulated to an extent that has now compromised our ambitions to bring our production to Poland. "
Mission Impossible 7 will feature Tom Cruise, Hayley Atwell, Rebecca Ferguson, Pom Klementieff, Vanessa Kirby, Esai Morales, and Shea Whigham. It is expected to hit theaters on November 19, 2021.
