'You're f******g gone': Tom Cruise blasts 'Mission Impossible' crew for breaking COVID-19 rules

Hollywood actor Tom Cruise, who has earned a reputation for his death-defying stunts in "Mission: Impossible" films, will reprise his iconic role of Ethan Hunt in the upcoming seventh and eight instalments.

However, the superstar who is filming amid COVID-19 pandemic, is leaving no stone unturned to make sure all safety rules are followed by his crew members.

Despite all attempts, the actor lost him calm when two members violated protocols, as they were standing too close to one another, reported The Sun.

An audio-tape has gone viral on social media that reveals Cruise screaming at crew members. He can be heard saying, “We are the gold standard. They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us.”

He further adds, “Because they believe in us and what we’re doing. I’m on the phone with every f***ing studio at night, insurance companies, producers and they’re looking at us and using us to make their movies. We are creating thousands of jobs, you motherf****ers. I don’t ever want to see it again. Ever!”

Without revealing names of the crew members, the actor exclaimed that if he finds them breaking rules again, they will be fired, “If I see you do it again, you’re f***ing gone!”

“I am beyond your apologies … You can tell it to the people who are losing their f***ing homes because our industry is shut down. It’s not going to put food on their table or pay for their college education. That’s what I sleep with every night — the future of this f***ing industry!” he added.

"Mission: Impossible 7" also stars Simon Pegg, Alec Baldwin, Vanessa Kirby and Rebecca Ferguson.

It is being helmed by filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie, who became the only director in the franchise's history to return for a second time with 2018 film "Fallout" after 2015's "Rogue Nation", is writing the script of the new movies as well.

The newcomers in the franchise also include Shea Whigham, Hayley Atwell and Pom Klementieff, who joined the cast recently in undisclosed roles.

The seventh instalment is scheduled for a July 23, 2021 release, while the eighth film will hit the theatres on August 5, 2022.
