In a recent interview with Square Mile, Simon Pegg shared an absolutely awesome story from the sets of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol involving Tom Cruise. According to the actor,

It’s always an adventure working with him. You know you’re always going to have fun, it’s always gonna be absurd. The level he operates on is very extreme. He lives a very rarified life because he’s a movie star. Which I constantly pull him up on and he finds very funny. He doesn’t quite understand the real world sometimes. It’s very endearing. […] We did this crazy zipline day in about an hour and a half. Ran to our cars, drove to the airport, got on his private jet and flew to Casablanca.


Simon Pegg has been a part of the Mission Impossible franchise for quite a while now. He is one of the characters who has continued to appear once he managed to impress the fans with his larger role in M: I 4. He has told stories in the past about how Cruise once pranked him on the sets of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. The actor was absolutely shocked by the stunts that Cruise had to do for the last released entry in the franchise. According to him:

Oh it’s absurd. I mean, the stuff he did for [Mission: Impossible] 7 was just kind of terrifying! As we always do, it’s like, how are you going to do more than that? And then I just saw footage of what he’s doing for 8 and it just terrifies me. I just hope they pay me anyway, you know?


While it might sound absolutely wild from someone else’s perspective, Cruise actually lives his life this way. The actor is very much dedicated to his work and he always makes sure he is aware of everything that happens with his projects. It would be interesting to see what crazy stunt he is going to pull off for the upcoming sequels Mission Impossible 7 and 8. The movies have been postponed for released dates in 2023 and 2024 and that would be sufficient time to add to the craziness of the franchise.


Mission Impossible 7 will be released in theaters worldwide on July 14, 2023.
