Mission: Impossible 7 star Tom Cruise has been caught on tape shouting at some of the movie's crew members, after he saw them break strict COVID-19 rules on set.
In the expletive-filled audio obtained by The Sun, the actor – who plays Ethan Hunt in the long-running action film series – was caught threatening to dismiss any individuals who continued to disregard the protocol and stating that he'll accept "no apologies" from offenders going forward.
"If I see you do it again, you're f**king gone." Cruise can be heard shouting, reportedly in front of several staff. "And if anyone in this crew does it, that's it — and you too and you too. And you, don't you ever f**king do it again."
He continued: "They're back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us. We are creating thousands of jobs, you motherf**kers. That's it. No apologies. You can tell it to the people that are losing their f**king homes because our industry is shut down.
"We are not shutting this f**king movie down. Is it understood? If I see it again, you're f**king gone."
Digital Spy has reached out to Cruise's reps for comment.
Directed by Christopher McQuarrie, Mission: Impossible 7 is currently filming at Warner Bros Studios in Leavesden, Hertfordshire.
Alongside Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson is set to reprise her role as British Intelligence operative Ilsa Faust while Simon Pegg will, once again, be bringing Hunt's trusty tech guy Benji Dunn to life. Angela Bassett is returning too, as CIA director Erika Sloane.
Ving Rhames will also be back as fellow spy Luther Stickell, and The Crown's Vanessa Kirby will make a cameo as arms dealer Alanna Mitsopolis aka the White Widow, having made her franchise debut in Mission: Impossible - Fallout.
New additions include Marvel stars Pom Klementieff, Shea Whigham and Hayley Atwell, as well as Ozark's Esai Morales – who stepped in after X-Men's Nicholas Hoult had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts.
Mission: Impossible 7 is currently dated for a November 19, 2021 release date, while the eighth movie is penned in for 2022.
